Marrickville Agent Strikes Again

Commercial agent sells two separate industrial properties for a third time this decade

Marrickville, NSW (4 March 2019) Leading commercial property agent Nicholas Smith from Raine & Horne Commercial Inner West/South Sydney has achieved the rare feat of selling two separate industrial properties three times this decade, following a successful in-room auction event in Sydney recently.

 Mr Smith sold 40-42 Chapel Street Marrickville, a 1,316 square metre property combining older style factory and workshop space for $5,100,000. 

The current vendor secured the property in September 2010 for $1.3 million, after the previous vendor paid $1.305 million for the property in February 2010, according to Mr Smith who secured the three distinct sales of the property.

 “This industrial property attracted four bidders, and we issued ten contracts at the auction because it has three street frontages, which is rare and the potential to re-develop into multiple warehouse units and strata subdivisions also appealed to investors,” Mr Smith said.

 At the same auction, an industrial unit combining showroom, office and warehouse space at 9/8 Burrows Road St Peters sold under the hammer for $1,330,000. Mr Smith first sold the property for $680,000 in March 2011 and $1.24 million in September 2016.

 “I am proud that I have sold these properties multiple times and the repeat transactions demonstrate we take the needs of our buyers seriously.

 “Our local knowledge and unique level of customer care for our buyers is translating into business for our office when these owners decide to sell,” Mr Smith said.

 “In fact, I have also previously sold another commercial property for the vendor of 40-42 Chapel Street.”

 Mr Smith said the interest in the in-room auctions held at 50 Margaret Street, Sydney last week, proves the strong demand for quality, well-located industrial real estate in the Inner West and southern Sydney.

 “The bidders who missed out on both properties are qualified buyers, who are either investors or owner-occupiers seeking property within the inner west South Sydney to conduct their businesses. 

 “If you own an industrial property in South Sydney or the inner west, now is a sensible time to take advantage of buyer demand.” 

 Mr Smith continued, “Industrial sales in St Peters and Marrickville are also achieving higher than expected rates per square metre. 

  “Smaller buildings at relatively affordable price points can often achieve results above expectations if offered in the open competitive setting that auctions allow.”
