Ms Copping said the lucky buyers were represented by a local buyers agent on the day. She said the buyers were from Sydney and were looking at renting the property.“We are seeing a bit more of that (buyers agents acting on behalf of buyers),” she said. “They are acting for the investors who see the value in the Brisbane market, but also the owner occupiers looking to move up, or for those professions that just don’t allow time for buyers to proactively look at properties.“Properties are selling quite quickly, especially in the inner north, which is sought-after because it has fantastic schools, transport links and amenities.”More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus12 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market12 hours agoPrior to the auction, and the election for that matter, Mr Turner told the Courier Mail that he was confident in the local market, and there had been strong interest in the property with big numbers through the open homes.

Mr Turner said the other advantage of the property was that it was in a pocket not zoned for units.“While there is a lot of density nearby … we’re in an area that is residential but benefits from the additional infrastructure in terms of cafes and shops.” The home has three good-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and an ensuite to the main, a U-shaped kitchen and an open-plan living and dining area opening to the deck.Outside there is the separate studio space that could be used as a home office of teenager’s retreat.
