AUCTIONEER Justin Marsden was true to his word on Saturday.

"If I sell this house today I will jump in the pool,'' he declared at the start of the auction at 3 McAnally Dr, Sunshine Beach.

The four-bedroom oceanside house was marketed by John Stamp and Rebecca Geldard of Ray White Noosa Hastings Street.

With more than 80 inspections during the four-week campaign the vendor set a competitive reserve in line with market feedback, John Stamp said.

"How good's that breeze!'' the ever-impeccable Justin Marsden said as he started the auction in the outdoor entertaining area adjoing the pool.

"There has been a lot of anticipation about this property coming to market and it's likely sale.

"It's a prized residence, plenty of character, flexibility of living areas .

"One of those houses you feel as well as see.''

After taking an opening bid of $1.2m he announced if there was further increases he would close the auction down at that.

After negotiations Justin came back and announced there had been an increased bid of $1.490m.

He called it through three times at that price and sold it to Brisbane buyers.

True to his word, Justin jumped fully clothed into the pool.

Co-marketing agent Rebecca Geldard of Ray White Noosa Hastings Street was on hand with a towel for when he got out, refreshed.
