The Victorian auction system
Since the first Melbourne property auctions in 1837, the public auction system has provided a popular method for buying and selling Victorian residential real estate.
In the 12 months to May 2017, more than 40,000 residential properties were sold by auction in Victoria.
All Victorian residential auctions must be conducted in accordance with the rules set out in the Schedules to the Sale of Land (Public Auctions) Regulations 2014.
To find out more about buying at auction, read Consumer Affairs Victoria’s Guide To Auctions.
Information for overseas buyers
Recognising the important contribution that overseas investment makes to the Australian community and economy, the Federal Government has streamlined the purchasing process for foreign property buyers to encourage investment.
You should consult the FIRB website for full details, and seek legal advice before acting on any of the information. If you’d like to find out more about purchasing property in Australia, please contact us.
