It’s just one of those suburbs that is highly sought after.”Ms MacDonald said Essentially Fresh catered finger food during all open homes which helped keep potential buyers around for longer.“Most people spend around five minutes in a home but this helped keep people in the home for longer which in turn helps spark competition on auction night,” she said.“Besides that, I think it’s a great community approach to selling homes and helping each other as it’s not just the real estate market doing it tough.“We’ve also found that people who grew up here are moving back so this helps introduce them to local businesses that they will most likely deal with living here.”last_img
