A four-bedroom freestanding home in the western Sydney suburb of Smithfield is expected to sell between $800,000 and $900,000 this weekend as it goes to market with 12 registered bidders.

The property, 97 Brenan Street Smithfield, was last sold in March 2009 for $490,000 following extensive renovations.

Agent Graham Ball from Ozway Reality said the property received an ‘overwhelming’ turnout at open inspection from older buyers interested in downsizing to a single storey home.

“It’s on a popular spot on top of the hill with easy access to Fairfield and local shopping centres,” he said.

“It’s an original 1963 three-bedroom home extensively upgraded in 2001 with a new roof and an extra bedroom.

“In 2009 it was sold to the family who are selling it now — they are moving out due to ill health.

“The price is definitely going to be between $800,000 to $900,000 for sure … feedback so far has the property priced into the low eights.”

CoreLogic put the median house price for Smithfield at $710,000.

The property is set for auction Saturday August 17.
