Salim Mehajer Halts House Sale Just Hours Before Auction
It's been revealed that former Auburn deputy mayor Salim Mehajer cancelled the auction of his $1.5 million home just hours before it was scheduled to go under the hammer.
Realestate.com.au spoke with his 93 year old neighbour Keith Beale who claimed Mehajer 'thought he was God' with his over the top plans for the humble home built in the 1970's.
The 'For Sale' sign had the slogan 'withdrawn' covered across it just hours before yesterday's scheduled auction.
The real estate listing has also been taken down.

The Mehajer family had originally put the Canada Bay home up for sale just days after a $200,000 bail was set to get Salim out of jail over charges of allegedly staging a car crash to help avoid court.
However the Mehajer family's Auburn butcher shop was sold this week fetching $2.175 million.
Last week Mehajer took a stand at his own bankruptcy appeal claiming he plans to develop at least five more properties.
He said he plans to borrow up to $82 million for the new western Sydney developments.
It was revealed that Mehajer owes the Australian Taxation Office $8.6 million yet he still hopes to get the loan.
