An initiative of the HIA Charitable Foundation, the four-bedroom residence in Perth’s northern suburbs was designed to raise money to help beyondblue address depression and anxiety in the residential building industry.
Dale Alcock Homes donated its services and skills to build the house on land donated by Stockland in the beachside community of Amberton in Eglinton.
A crowd of about 50 people gathered to see the home go under the hammer of auctioneer Tom Esze and HIA Charitable Foundation chairman Ron Dwyer said the auction was a success despite it being passed in.
“The HIA Charity Home is now for sale through a normal offer and acceptance process and we’re talking with a number of buyers who attended the auction,” he said.
“We’re now in negotiations with some serious buyers, which will in turn raise much-needed funds for the HIA Charitable Foundation.
“The event also raised awareness for depression and anxiety in the residential building industry.”
