“So they are going back to the market, they will most likely either be looking for a new buyer, or possibly one of the buyers who was there and didn’t make an offer,” he told the radio hosts.

“They are now negotiating and – I assume – will most likely have an asking price well above that published reserve.”

Cooley continued: ‘That reserve – considering it’s a low number that they want the participants to earn more than – I would have thought they should be looking for something between 4.3 and 4.7 or 4.8 million, something in that range. ‘

This is not the first time that a Block property has not been sold at auction.

In season four in 2011, homes of Josh and Jenna and Rod and Tania were let into Cameron Street, Richmond (Vic).

“It was a bittersweet day. We had an incredible high and some crushing lows for our Blockheads, all of whom worked the hardest I’ve ever seen to deliver these homes,” host Scott Cam said Sunday night.

“So they’re going back to the market, they’ll most likely either be looking for a new buyer, or possibly one of the buyers that was there who didn’t bid,” he told the radio hosts.

“As we have seen many times before, we will continue to negotiate with interested buyers to sell these homes, which are still for sale. I’m going for a positive result.’

Speaking of the shocking results, Julian Cress, co-creator and executive producer of The Block, said: “We are in a very volatile real estate market and we have seen large and unexpected rate hikes, including one this week.

“Although we had many registered bidders, there is clearly something in the market that has scared the market.”

“They’re negotiating now, and – I assume – will most likely have an asking price of some well above what that published reserve was,” he added.
