The historical Watervale Hall has finally got a sold sticker on it. After being on the market for well over 2 years with a local agent, the Watervale Community Association decided to go in a different direction with local Ray White agent Mark O’Meagher, the result – a signed contract in 36 hours.
The formula Mark employed was a simple one of getting the price right for the current market and utilising a proven marketing program to capture 100% of the market.
“With the sale of the Watervale Hall, the community can now look forward to creating a new centre at the recreation park for everyone to enjoy,” Greg Bryksy, President of the Watervale Community Association said.
The building was built in 1872 by the Ancient Order of Foresters, subsequently purchased by the Watervale community in 1966, with ownership being transferred to the Watervale Community Association in 2005.
It is understood the new owner intends to run an antiques and second-hand furniture business from the premises in the near future, which is great for the town itself.
Agent Mark O’Meagher said,” From my initial contact with the association they were willing to listen to all my points on everything from the type of photos, the text we needed and the price that I truly believed it would sell at”
The Association felt at ease knowing the hall was staying with an owner from the local area and would be preserved and maintained into the future.
