In mid-August, smack bang in the middle of a lockdown, Santos Sulfaro and Frank Sulfaro sold a charming three-bedroom terrace with a studio at 40 Carlisle Street, Leichhardt, in a sale that proved just how eager buyers are to snap up quality property. The vendors had owned the home for almost 20 years as an investment that was managed by the Sulfaros, who also had a good reputation in the street having sold the neighbouring property in 2018.

Upon appraisal we found that it was showing signs of wear and tear and would need some cosmetic improvements to really appeal to the right buyers and achieve the best price possible,” said Santos. “Being a typical Victorian terrace with plenty of its original details still intact, we decided to make enhancements that really emphasised that charm. Inspired by classic Paddington terraces, we kept it simple and highlighted the features with a black and white colour scheme and new lighting. We also addressed landscaping, polished the hardwood floors and added new carpet and decorative window furnishings. All in all the vendors invested about $20,000.

We marketed the property with no brochures or print advertising, relying solely on digital, with the buyer coming through our database. A total of 44 contracts were issued with the property being sold via online auction after just 14 days on market, being brought forward by two weeks thanks to the intense demand, despite the COVID environment.
