Would you buy this ‘sight unseen’?

first_img22 Deighton Road, Dutton Park, will go under the hammer at the end of March.A dilapidated shack — set to make its owners a major windfall in one of our hottest inner-city suburbs — will be sold “sight unseen” in a sort-of lucky dip for buyers. It may well be the worst property in the country right now — given a similar property dubbed “the worst house in Australia” sold down the road from this one for $668,000 in 2015. The dilapidated house in Deighton Rd, Dutton Park, has just hit the market via the Public Trustee of Queensland, who have it listed to go to auction in a month’s time. Agent Paul Doyle listed it as a “dilapidated, circa 1920 home” that still had “VJ interior, high ceilings, ornate timber breezeways and wide pine flooring but the overall condition and foundations have deteriorated”. He warned: “No internal inspections granted (property to be sold sight unseen)”. They are pretty serious about there being no inspections allowed of the property. The city in the distance.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago“This pre-war home, adorned with charming features, has fallen on hard times but may be a restored to its former glory or investigated for the option to start again and build your modern masterpiece (subject to council approvals).” It may be hard to spot now, but the house has three bedrooms, two kitchens, a meals area, living room, bathroom, separate toilet and spacious enclosed veranda. It’s the 405sq m block zoned character residential by the Brisbane City Council that is considered “valuable” by househunters, located as it is “only 3km to the CBD”. The property is in a million-dollar neighbourhood with the house next door having sold for $1.11m a year ago. The owner of that property had bought it for $270,000 in 2001, according to CoreLogic. Harcourts Homeside Greenslopes agent Sam Peterffy, who sold the neighbouring house, said the deterioration of 22 Deighton Road did not put off buyers at all. “Anyone could see that the home would be upgraded eventually. Noone has lived there for years, I believe the lady passed away some years ago and left it to her nephew.” “My one next door had massive interest through it and it got sold in the first week. Dutton Park is an area where the older people are starting to move out and younger professionals are starting to move in. They just accept that the area is an up and coming one.” The area is very popular with families because of proximity to both Brisbane State High School and the University of Queensland. The listing said it was “a rare inner city opportunity to salvage and transform”.The Public Trustee’s office had to create a new entry for the property in CoreLogic records, which often means the property has only ever had one owner or ownership under one family passed through inheritance. The auction off 22 Deighton Road will be held on site at 1.30pm on Saturday March 30, and the successful bidder must pay a 5 per cent deposit on the day with the balance cleared in 42 days, and settlement unconditional.
