In December 2019, the average Sydney house price was $1.1 MILLION. So why is this young Sydney family taking a chance and potentially letting their home go for as little as $1?

Because the Hantos family believe someone else’s dream is worth more than their own wallets. Which is why they’re auctioning off their Epping home with no reserve price, even though it has an estimated value of $1.5 million. A reserve price condition for the sale, meaning the sale can only proceed if the auction bidders pledge an amount higher than the reserve. This is in place to protect the sellers.
