    I was going to say this end of Sunnybank Hills is always going to be priced cheap. However, I did not expect to see the price tag. Surely it was negotiated higher? They often don't change the listing price until later.

    However if it actually went for that...then colour me shocked.

    that's what i was thinking. there's got to be something wrong with this place for that price. If any locals have any info?

    I am not suprised, if you have a look at Bradman street it is only just SBH/Sunnybank.
    Any further west and you are in Acacia Ridge, surrounded by industrial areas, freight depots and commercial premises.

    Where Bradman st meets Beenleigh road is quite low lying, and possibly is a little noisy, this part of SBH is considerably cheaper.

    Anywhere south of Beenleigh rd and west of pinelands in that pocket towards Acacia Ridge is less desirable and cheaper.

    I would be interested to see what it actually sold for and if it had any major problems.

    Bradman Street is mostly industrial on the western side with some housing mainly on the opposite side, very busy road with lots of trucks. You can't compare it with the quieter residential parts of the suburb.

    It is directly across the road from a concrete depot.

    I agree with all the negatives you just said, but properties in this (direct) vicinity have been selling for around $400k recently. So a 100k discount, assuming it's roughly on par, is still amazing!

    onthehouse says it sold for 340k Aug2015?

    On a side note, is thehomepage commonly used by PC members? I've only been using RE and domain.

    Yes, that's right I looked at the location and thought yuck before looking at the sold price.
    Must have been sold for land value? Must either be a family transfer or its in bad enough condition to require major repairs or a rebuild.
    Other than that it doesn't make much sense?

    The last place I bought the agent didn't update the ad with the final sale price until it went unconditional about a month later. So it could have been negotiated up to 350-380.
