813h: Phew! What a great start to the 2020 auctions – and to think we weren’t sure if they would even be happening this year a few months ago

754h: It’s like a game of tennis, with $ 5,000 incremental bids traded And now a $ 1,000 bid

753 h 00: Very strong early bidding, buyers lawyer Nicole Jacobs looking very determined And there’s also Zoom’s first auction And Danny Wallace’s first off-center bid

752pm: OK, so an opening bid of $ 321m from Frank Valentic, quickly followed by $ 3.33m from Danny Wallis

749h: It’s doubly difficult for auctioneers this year Not only do they have to keep an eye on the crowd, but also the TV screen for any bid made via Zoom pair of eyes on the back of your head

747h: It is extremely strange to see a block auction with so few people physically present

747h: And we’re on our way Luke and Jasmin’s auctioneer is Halli Moore, from Buxton Reserve is $ 3 35m

744h: Ah, the montage Always fun to remember the weak spots – like not knowing what the style of the 1910s was – and the strong points, such as Shaynna’s first outfits

740h: Nobody wants to go last, says George, however, Dea and Darren won Triple Threat in 2015 versus the last

737h: Responsible drinking warning: please nobody has a drinking game where you take a sip every time there are tears in tonight’s episode

736h: There is also always hope that a buyer who is missing one of the previous properties will also be interested in one of the other properties And it has happened in previous seasons

735h: The previous winners won at each position of the order; it really depends on the mix of same day buyers

730h: Jimmy and Tam are really between a rock and a hard man: no one is ever happy with their stash, and very few are happy with their auction position, either So even if they want everyone to world be happy, it will be difficult to do it

729h: So what will Jimmy and Tam do? Shelley advises prioritizing Luke and Jasmin due to their strong emotional connection to potential buyers

728h: Competitors look far from thrilled with these high reserves Jasmin wonders about the $ 60,000 difference between hers and Jimmy and Tam’s – that’s because their house is around 50 smaller square meters

727h: Reserves: $ 3 29m for Jimmy and Tam $ 3 35m for Harry and Tash, Luke and Jasmin and Sarah and George, and $ 3 34m for Daniel and Jade

725h: The auction market has been hit particularly hard in Melbourne, but Alice is right; buyer demand far exceeds supply at the moment

723h: at $ 3 2m, these prices are among the highest ever for Block properties It’s gonna be tough

720h: “Superpowers aren’t the best thing to hold on,” says Tam Yes, okay My super power of sassy comments with wine can often be a problem

718h: If Mr Cam doesn’t win a Logie for Best Actor for this Back to the Future-inspired segment, then something is seriously wrong

712h: The superpower that I see being particularly stressful for the Queenslanders Taking everyone’s risk off your shoulders would be quite a burden

721h: I know Jimmy and Tam’s vibe dates back to the 1950s, but I still don’t know about that pink door, personally! But, as they say in the classics, you do yourself

719h: “We made our dream house,” says Luke It’s a beautiful house – but hopefully this is someone else’s dream house too

717h: As they say in the classics, it’s time to part ways Sarah is looking for the fifth step with her house… understandable!

659h: Of course, the most crucial information is the auction reserve Competitors win every dollar above their auction reserve, and the team with the highest price above the reserve also earns an additional $ 100,000

655pm: I popped a bottle of bubbles – hopefully a few of the teams will do the same while watching tonight’s action (although I’m nowhere near as dressed as they are). were for their big moment…)

650pm: Who is likely to buy The Block homes this year? Almost everyone and everyone – and there are whispers of celebrity interest

640h: Harry and Tash win eyeball race, with most views on their list as of Monday

630h: Besides strong tax incentives, The Block properties can be attractive for potential capital gain Here’s how all previous homes have sold after the show ends

620h: Since Jimmy and Tam have gained this power to choose the order of the auction, how will that order affect how this finale unfolds?

622h: Jimmy and Tam won the Domain magazine cover award earlier this season, plus the power to choose auction order Here’s the magazine cover story, featuring the five homes for sale

6pm: One hour before, Blockheads Welcome those of you who have just joined us Property buyers receive everything including all furniture – yes, toothbrushes and toilet paper included Here is a list of a few – some of the interesting inclusions this year

545h: Another thing I would like us to remember at this point are the dances of the judges who marked their arrival each week What a gift

530h: It’s not just the contestants who draw a loyal following to the show Some of the trades are also popular with viewers Here, some tell us what happened behind the scenes this year

515h: Want to own your own slice of The Block? Elsternwick’s 2017 season home that Jason and Sarah renovated is up for sale again

5pm: After their appearance on The Block, what are the competitors doing? My colleague Jessica Dale found a few of them Read here

430h: The way homes are selling under the hammer may well be influenced by the year of the roller coaster in Melbourne My colleague Jemimah Clegg spoke to experts about how homes could hold up Read here

415h: We are still about two and a half hours from the start time, so still some time to familiarize yourself again with the properties under the hammer
