The $1 million property, and the intensive auction results

The $1 million property – the average value in Auckland – moves around. It used to be in suburbs like Remuera, but that’s $2 million territory now, even in some cases for a cross-lease with negligible land.

Yesterday, at Barfoot & Thompson’s large city residential auction, the $1 million property was in the western isthmus suburb of Avondale, between the back fence of the racecourse and the suburb’s business area on Great North Rd, and it wasn’t ultra-flash. An old kauri villa on a 632m² section, 3 bedrooms, a carport, “a do-up” according to the agent’s promotion, and it sold under the hammer for exactly $1 million.

In these auction columns I note properties which are development prospects, but the house on Elm St isn’t one of those. Nor are most of the properties listed below, largely because 19 of the 31 are cross-leased – the intensification already done, resetting the land price as a consequence and presenting a barrier to real intensification that would be more than filling in backyards with a second dwelling.

Barfoot & Thompson ran 2 residential auctions in 2 rooms at its city office yesterday – back to the heyday of listings, but not of sales. All up, the 4 auctions put 70 homes before buyers, with another 6 sold prior.

27 were sold under the hammer for a 39% clearance rate, or 43% counting the sold priors, and 17 of the auctionroom sales were of intensive properties – apartments, suburban units or on cross-leased land (another couple were development prospects). From an intensive list of 31 properties (the list below), that’s a clearance rate of 55% (I’ve added one since yesterday, reducing the clearance rate from 57%). Results from the intensive offering:

Auction clearance falls as no-bids rise

Auction results have been mixed in the apartment & residential markets in recent weeks, as Barfoot & Thompson’s auction sessions at its city office demonstrated this week.

In 3 sessions on Wednesday-Thursday, the agency offered 59 homes, with another 10 listings sold pre-auction. Including the presales, the 28 sales represented a 41% clearance.

In the apartments auction yesterday (link below to separate story), 2 of the 8 listed sold under the hammer and another 2 prior, for a 50% clearance.

At the 3 residential sessions, 17 of the properties offered were what I classify as intensive, including 13 cross-leases. The others were 2 suburban units not on cross-lease, an apartment & a townhouse

Of the 17, 5 were sold and 12 were passed in, including 7 which received no bid.

The process has slowed right down as vendors adjust to something approaching normal, where bidding no longer starts at an assumed million and no longer carries on skyward. As well as more completions than would be the case if the hesitancy resulted in quick passing in, I understand there’s also been a transfer of sales from the auction room to post-auction negotiation.

There’s also a big reduction in stock being taken to auction, the number of Chinese investors has fallen away and those who do turn up have been sitting on their hands as much as anybody else.

Below, the intensive market results:
