The Main Event to cater for property surge in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie
PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie expects to set new sales records when the hammer goes down on the 11th November for the biggest local real estate opportunity of the year, The Main Event.
More than 2000 buyer enquiries have been attracted to the event thanks to an extensive advertising campaign, with a charitable donation from every property sold going to Got Your Back Sista.
PRD Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, founding Director Mark Kentwell says this year’s event will be the biggest one ever as agents across Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Central Coast will be working hard to sell the properties in the lead up to and on the day.
Mr Kentwell said he has engaged Australia’s most booked auctioneer and five times winner of The Block, Damien Cooley for the Main Event auction.
“Damien will be working hard to sell properties that haven’t sold prior using our Friendly Auction System however we expect a large number of those properties will sell beforehand,” said Mr Kentwell.
With the demand for housing in regional areas increasing and government incentives available for buyers, this year’s event is expected to build on the success of last year’s event.
“Since COVID-19, we’ve had a huge surge of activity and despite us running auctions every two weeks, we felt because of this surge we needed to hold an event even bigger,” said Mr Kentwell.
“We can expect as a result of all the buyer activity that this campaign generates, the buyers who miss out on these properties will be hungry to go again. So for those vendors who didn’t get a chance to get their property into the Main Event, we are taking submissions for a final auction event before Christmas and some are signing up for the New Year already,” he added.
By supporting Got Your Back Sista, The Main Event is a great opportunity to share stories and images of inspiring women and organisations that are actively doing what they can to improve the plight of oppressed, disadvantaged and mistreated people around the world. A custom 3-piece surfboard will also be auctioned off for charity.
The Main Event will be held at The Arc, Watt Street Commercial Centre and also online using the Auction Now platform on Wednesday 11th November. Buyers must pre-register to bid on a property on the day. For more information visit https://tinyurl.com/PRDTheMainEvent
