A western suburbs first-home buyer has turned his entry into the market into a win for sick and disadvantaged kids.

Vikas Attri and his partner, who will soon migrate from India, claimed the keys in a charity auction supporting Variety yesterday.

The pair bought the four-bedroom house in Lotus Living’s Wyndham Vale Jubilee estate, built by Porter Davis, with the profits from the $530,000 sale to be donated to the charity.

A crowd of more than 75 turned out for the auction, including six registered bidders.

But only two prospective buyers had a chance to put their hands up.

The underbidder, a young woman supported by her mum, was also hoping to buy her first home.

The sale price far surpassed Wyndham Vale’s $471,000 median house price, according to latest CoreLogic figures.

Retired Oliver Hume auctioneer Peter Lanigan handled the sale.

Face painting, a barbecue run by the local CFA, as well as free coffee and doughnuts accompanied the auction.

The kid-friendly estate will have a water park when complete.

Variety raises funds to support Australian kids under 18 facing illness, disability or disadvantage.

In addition to the auction’s financial support for the charity, the Jubilee estate will be the departure point for the annual Variety Bash in which teams set out across the country to raise money.

Lotus Living, Porter Davis and Oliver Hume will have a team in the Bash, aiming to raise enough funds, alongside profits from their auction result yesterday, to top the $126,000 they donated to the charity last year.
