Co-founder still keen to offload
Peter Higgins, the recovering millionaire co-founder of Mortgage Choice, continues to search for buyers of several offerings within his property empire. But the polo playing Higgins has recently had his mind on health issues.
He’s telling friends he’s bouncing back well from open heart surgery and a triple heart bypass late last month.
Meanwhile there’s $3.3 million aspirations for his Victorian Italianate-style property, the former Richmond Post Office which was scheduled for auction last weekend. He is also seeking $75 million for his nearby polo fields.
Famous art up for grabs

The six-bedroom home fetched more than $13 million through Ray White agents Gavin Rubinstein and Elliott Placks.
The Churchill Road home of Levy, who is the chairman of Monash Private Capital, sold after just 15 days on the market.
The contents include art works by David Bromley, John Olsen and Charles Blackmanthat weren’t there during the open for inspections, suggesting some are on consignment through Charleston’s Fine Art Auctions.
Muso finds a buyer
PNAU frontman Nick Littlemore, who performs next month at the Big Pineapple Music Festival on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, has sold his Bondi Beach apartment.
The home sold for $1.06 million ahead of its scheduled midweek auction.
The musician was initially seeking $1.2 million for the apartment that cost him $760,000 in 2010 when he bought it from his brother, Sam, who has since spent $2.35 million on a home in Avalon.
The family had picked up the 85sqm, two-bedroom art deco unit for $659,000 in 2007.
