So when she needed to sell the family home in a flat market, and the only interest was from interstate, her agent took the home online to sell. I'm looking for an opening bidder to start me away. Live video streaming of a home auction done over the Internet. It's the first home successfully sold this way in Australia. it was different, but it was good, it worked, it worked for us. It worked because Suzie got the best price she could in the current real estate slump. The 2-bedroom home on Sydney's North Shore was bought for $611,000 by the only interested bidder who couldn't make it to Sydney. $611,000 is the offer, let me seek my instructions. You get to see the auction, you get to hear the auction and you feel part of auction, because you get to put the bids in yourself. The Victorian man who bought this property did come here to see it first and estate agents don't think that'll ever change. What they do hope

is that the technology opens up the property market like never before. Interstate and international buyers are targets, especially as interest rates and economic fears take the shine off the sector. The potential for the online bidding is for more people to bid at an auction, With the market being as tight as it is, the more buyers, the better.
