Research has found your chances of selling a property increase by 150 per cent if you put photos of animals in your listing
OK, that’s not true but there is no denying cute animal pictures definitely attract attention.
One such listing in Nanima – a small locality in the Yass Valley Council area – has garnered attention for an adorable photo of alpacas.
The current owner breeds the alpacas for show purposes, and there are several dozen on the farm.
Unfortunately, the property does not come with the alpacas but listing agent Kris Hellier of McGrath Estate Agents Gungahlin says an interested party has asked if they could buy a few.
Beyond the alpacas, the 6.8-hectare property itself is a treat.
The house sits among luscious green paddocks with tall windows and doors creating a perfect symmetry between the indoors and outdoors.
Mr Hellier said the architecturally-designed four-bedroom house was built three years ago.
“There are very nice inclusions inside, with imported Italian tiles and huge open-plan living,” he said.

It is solar passive and faces north.
“[The home] captivates the views of the areas, the owners have said if it’s a sunny day even if the temperature is low they don’t need a heater,” Mr Hellier said.
The property has RU1 zoning allowing for some farming.
Namina is a tightly held area, which sits between Murrumbateman and Gundaroo. At the 2016 census, it recorded a population of just 165.
It’s a 15-minute drive to the ACT border and about 35 minutes to Canberra’s city centre.
The property at 69 Dicks Creek Road is currently listed with a $1.25 million to $1.35 million price guide.
