Original Fairfield West home sells after a week on the market
A Fairfield West house which hit the market for the first time has been snapped up fast — and for well above price expectations.
In original condition, the modest home at 46 Quiros Ave sold for $690,000 following strong interest from a mix of buyers.

The property, which has old wallpaper in the bathrooms and a dated kitchen, had been listed for sale through Marando Real Estate’s Roy Marando. The new owner was found by his co-agent, Irene Susnjara.
“From when it hit the market, contracts had been signed in seven or eight days,” Mr Marando told the Fairfield Advance.
“In less than a week, we had 50-odd inquiries and many price offers, starting at $650,000,” he said.
The agent said they had been expecting it to sell in the early to mid $600,000s, based on recent sales.
A step back in time, this old home has been held by only one owner, an elderly woman who moved to a nursing home.

“She is a lovely character and sharp as a pin … she was rapt with the result,” Mr Marando said.
The property sold to an investor living a few streets away. They plan to renovate the three-bedder and rent it out, according to the agent.
