Notorious buyer behind the big wins for Greek and Cypriot contestants on The Block

·

Notorious Block buyer Danny Wallis has taken home three of this season’s luxe Brighton properties, costing him almost a whopping $12m.

The Melbourne rich lister outplayed The Block’s regular buyer’s advocates and other bidders, who were unable to compete with his incredible knockout bids.

Mr Wallis collected Sarah and George Bragias’ family home for $4,000,0002, Harry and Tash Pavlou’s for $4 million and Daniel and Jade’s for $3.8 million.

The IT entrepreneur entered the competition at each auction with blowout bids well above the $3.2-$3.4 million price guides.

Mr Wallis said that even after he had inflated the final prices, the Block homes were “good value for money” and in a “great spot.”

“Number one (Harry and Tash’s) was my favourite. I liked the tree outside, the northern aspect, garage and the house,” Mr Willis told realestate.com.au.

All contestants were told prior to the bidding last night that Cypriot father-daughter duo Harry and Tash’s property had been the ‘most viewed’ on the popular real-estate website, The Domain. Meanwhile, Sarah and George’s house was voted the ‘people’s favourite’ by Channel 9 audiences.

Both teams had a reserve house price of $3.35 million but that clearly didn’t stop Mr Wallis.

The property investor confirmed he would not be moving into any of his latest purchases — which are all in a row along New Street.

It’s believed he will rent out the properties, which he did last year after buying Mitch and Mark’s St Kilda Oslo townhouse for $3.374m.

He also previously purchased 403 Dorcas St in South Melbourne on the fifth season of The Block for $1,400,001.01, after a number of erratic bids.
