Auction action resumes around town this weekend and good results are expected in various locations.

Global Property’s Anthony Birt is marketing 19 James Street in Warners Bay, which will go to auction at 11am.

The three-bedroom residence on around 540 square metres is located one block back from Lake Macquarie and has only ever had one owner.

A price guide is yet to be set but Mr Birt said land value in the area was around $600,000 but newly developed properties were selling for over $1.2 million.

“It’s a really up and coming street. It’s one street back from the water and a lot of original homes are being bought along there and redeveloped into luxury residences,” he said.

“It’s only had one owner and is in very, very original condition. It’s a blank canvas for someone to come in and build their dream home.”

Steady interest has been seen for a modest weatherboard home on over 1300 square metres in Edgeworth.
