A home buyer paid AUS$900,000 (£500,000) over the asking price of a property. Why? Because he liked the house number.
Yes, that's right - the three-bedroom property located in Sydney Australia is No.65, which just so happens to be the buyer's favourite number.
The man, who is said to be in his late 40s, wanted it so much that he snapped up the property just four days after it was listed on realestate.com.au.
And he paid above the AUS$3.9 million (£2.2 million) listing price, instead forking out AUS$4.8 million, (£2.7 million) for the dream home.
Angus Gorrie, who works for estate agents McGrath, said: "It was his favourite number, it was certainly a number he wanted to buy... one that had a six and a five in it."
Apparently, the man had been looking for his ideal place for a year when the listing came up.
He wasted no time and went to view it immediately before heading there a second time three days after where he handed over the cash (including the extra 900 big ones).
Gorrie continued: "The buyer loved the number and the location and he was very interested in securing the property prior to auction."
The buyer is happy with his deal and is excited to move into No. 65 with his family where he plans on adding his own personal touches to the place.
According to Affinity Numerology, the number 65 is an intuitive family number which, above all, represents the energy of relationships.
Whether that means anything to you or not, it certainly seems to have helped sell this property.
But the number isn't the only reason for the purchase - the house has a lot of attractive features too.
Located in Randwick North, the home boasts a new kitchen, three large bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as huge open-plan living and dining areas.
All of this flows out to a spacious entertainers' terrace alongside newly landscaped gardens, making it the ideal place to host guests.
Additional features include high ceilings, built-in wardrobes and a rear lane access double garage, with the listing adding that the home was held by the same owners for 33 years.
The website reads: "Impressively proportioned, bright, airy and beautifully maintained, this large family home is ready to move straight into while offering scope to renovate and add value down the track.
"Situated in one of North Randwick's most prestigious streets, it is a walk to Centennial Park, village shops, UNSW and city transport."
