An industrial warehouse/office site at Coburg North on Melbourne’s northside has been sold at auction for well above its reserve price.
The property on a land area of approximately 1038 sqm at 12 Louvain Street, Coburg North, was sold as a vacant possession to a local owner-occupier by Paul Rizzo and George Kelepouris of Ray White Commercial Oakleigh on behalf of a private owner for $700,000.
“We had a great on-site auction for this property with around 20 people attending and four bidders involved,” Mr Rizzo said.
“Bidding started at $500,000 and following more than a dozen bids it was sold under the hammer for $700,000, which was $50,000 over the vendor’s reserve.
“The fortunate owner occupier that was successful was very pleased to secure the property for his business.”

Mr Rizzo said the site had been purchased through another agency about 12 months ago for $650,000.
“Due to circumstances the owner needed to sell so it was pleasing for them to make a profit,” he said.
Mr Kelepouris said there was a total building area of approximately 280 sqm, including a 210 sqm shed complete with 3 phase power and a 70 sqm office.
“This was a fantastic opportunity to secure a quality piece of industrial property in the heart of Coburg North in close proximity to the Lincoln Mills Homemaker Centre and new Coles Shopping precinct currently under construction,” he said.
