Buyers are set to be out in force at the weekend as auctions begin to pick up again for the year — and it seems many are flocking to homes in Sydney’s west.
Of all the properties scheduled to go under the hammer on Saturday across NSW, one in Seven Hills has generated the highest number of clicks on realestate.com.au.

BUYERS IN THE BOX SEAT AS HOUSE PRICES DROP
With two homes up for grabs for the price of one, the site at 9 and 9aA Dale St has already been inspected by 60 groups.
It is selling with a guide of $700,000 — almost $300,000 less than Sydney’s median house price of $985,000.
Listing agents Fiona Spindlow and John Kelly from Starr Partners Riverstone have seen consistent buyer interest each week.
“There are a lot of investors looking at it as well as a few large families, who are considering living in one house and having their parents in the other home,” Ms Spindlow said.
“It has been popular because it is unique, not only with the granny flat on there but also the fact it is street-facing, not tucked away on the back of the block like most,” she said.
Both dwellings are set in a cul-de-sac on 698 sqm, close to parks, public transport, the suburb’s train station and Seven Hills Public School.

The main house has been renovated and comes with three bedrooms, a covered back deck and a single carport.
The modern second dwelling has two bedrooms, a bathroom and an open-plan kitchen and living area.
The property has a potential rent return of $800 a week. It will go to auction on Saturday morning.
