The Block: 5 other houses are for sale on Charming Street ahead of show's auction

"There’s no coincidence as to why they’ve all popped up now."

We are mere days away from The Block auctions, with the major prize resting on which house makes the most money on auction day.

There are, of course, many factors that will go into the outcome at the auction, with Domain sharing that competition in the area will play a huge part in how much the properties will sell for.

The website reveals that in the last six months, there have been very few houses up for sale on Charming Street, where The Block is filming this year, but as the teams prepare to sell their houses, five others have been placed on the market.

According to Noel Susay, who is selling Leah and Ash's house as well as 39 Charming Street, the show's neighbours are making the most of the attention their street is now receiving.

"The timing of it? There’s no coincidence as to why they’ve all popped up now," Noel tells Domain. "We know from previous campaigns that 40 per cent of the people who look at those (Block) listings, then look at other homes in the area. That is very powerful. If you’re thinking of selling in Hampton East, there’s no better time to do it."

He adds, "[The Block 2023] really lifted the profile of the area. When those properties go to auction, that will lift the median price of the whole street, and the area, significantly."

Josh Stirling, who is selling Kyle and Leslie's house, is also selling the house next door, 12 Charming Street, which looks very much like The Block houses before they were revamped.

"We made sure we had the [for sale] board up the front for the open for inspection day. We want maximum eyeballs on this place, so any extra exposure we can get is extremely valuable," he says.

Josh adds that 12 Charming Street is a great property as fans of The Block who might not be able to afford the renovated homes may be able to afford a house similar to what those properties started out like.
