Auction duel highlights Netherby popularity

There’s good reason Netherby is considered one of Adelaide’s most sought-after suburbs. 

Adjacent Springfield and Mitcham and close to some of the state’s most prestigious schools, the median sale price for Netherby is $1.095 million, placing it among the top handful in the state. 

Its popularity was highlighted again when an auction for a beautifully renovated home on Netherby Avenue  created a stirring bidding duel between two parties. 

Built in 1940 on an allotment of almost 1400m2, the home had been totally renovated and also featured fully landscaped front and back yards as well as an in-ground swimming pool. 


Under the guidance of Toop&Toop Director of Residential Sales, Bronte Manuel, there was an opening bid of $1.495m before the vying parties went head-to-head. 

The property was ultimately knocked down for $1.695m, an outstanding result that underlined the value of selling under auction conditions. 

“It was a strong campaign that culminated in us achieving an excellent price,” Toop&Toop sales partner Sarah Jaensch said. 

“The vendors presented the house beautifully and were realistic with their expectations. 

“There was some genuine competition that’s only generated under auction conditions, so that was a factor in the success, too.” 

Vendor David Goodman said he had been thrilled with the sales process. 

“The experience was absolutely superb,” Mr Goodman said.  

“Right from the start, Sarah made us feel at ease. It’s the first time we’ve sold a house in Australia, so we’re not really experienced.  

“She helped us understand the whole process. We built a rapport straight away. 

“And the result - we couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
