The Block’s auction day is just around the corner, with one week to go before the five completed homes in Gisborne, Victoria, go under the hammer.

Tom and Sarah-Jane (Victoria), Rachel and Ryan (NSW), Ankur and Sharon (Victoria), Dylan and Jenny (Queensland) and Oz and Omar (NSW) are hoping to sell their renovations for a total of $20million – in what is expected to be the biggest auction in the show’s 18-season history.

The teams have almost wrapped up 12 weeks’ work across their 500sqm homesteads in the Macedon Ranges – and the resulting properties truly are a sight to behold.

The Block’s auction day is just around the corner, with one week to go before the five completed homes in Gisborne, Victoria, go under the hammer 

Host Scott Cam said this season of The Block was ‘by far’ the most challenging.

‘We upped the ante with the biggest blocks ever, and very harsh country weather conditions,’ he said in a statement.

‘To their credit, our Blockheads have produced some stunning five-bedroom houses on 10 acres each. They’ve really built the country dream for five lucky Aussie families.

‘Anything can happen on auction day, but we’re gunning for them to each take home some money. They all deserve it after this year’s slog.’

As per the show’s long-standing rules, the team that makes the biggest profit above reserve on auction day will pocket an extra $100,000 prize money.

Despite promises of big sales, some real estate experts have expressed concern the properties won’t sell for within their $4million to $4.4million price guides.

This is because the median house price in the Gisborne area is about $1.1million.

However, sources at Channel Nine are confident the homes will smash their reserves because of their ultra-stylish designs, great location and resale potential.
