5 intensive residentials & 2 warehouses sell at Barfoots

Barfoot & Thompson sold 5 intensive residential properties – apartments, townhouses, suburban units, cross-leases – at its city auctions on Wednesday-Thursday, leaving 9 unsold, and sold both commercial properties on offer.

After some long silences during the residential auction yesterday, one of the warehouses was brought back and sold after some spirited bidding. The other warehouse was sold shortly after auction.

From the Barfoots auctions: Is there a trend?

The constant question in the auctionrooms, now that the extreme price escalation of the last couple of years is over, is: Is there a trend?

And the answer is ‘No’. After a hard push in one direction, forcing some regulatory or finance action, a lull is a reasonable expectation. But there will still be outliers – a property that’s a special attraction, something that brings 2-3 bidders up against each other whereas, for many properties, if the first hope is missed the next might do just as well.

One of the 2 apartments auctioned at Barfoot & Thompson’s city auction on Thursday was sold under the hammer. The other, in Stonefields, was passed in. A commercial property in Panmure, with vacant upstairs space, was also passed in.

In the agency’s city auctions on Wednesday, both apartments – in Parnell & St Marys Bay – were passed in.

Among the other offerings that I classify as intensive – suburban units, the occasional townhouse and the many cross-leases – 10 were sold and 4 passed in.

The auctionroom was crowded for a time on Wednesday, sparsely populated for the specialist offerings on Thursday morning.

Vendors continue to have to adjust their aspirations downward, but that downward pressure is less evident when what’s on offer is a cross-lease – in many instances, a cheaper entry point to a more exclusive suburb.

The 19 properties listed below include 4 apartments & one commercial property and are mostly on the east of the isthmus. As usual I’ve ignored the main stream of standalone residential offerings.

April start for Tamaki Drive intersection upgrade

A $7 million upgrade for the intersection of Tamaki Drive & Ngapipi Rd is scheduled to start in April after an independent hearings panel approved Auckland Transport’s proposal.

The waterfront route to the eastern suburbs carries 30,000 vehicles/day.

Auckland Transport’s major capital group manager, Andrew Scoggins, said last week it was one of Auckland’s most dangerous intersections: “21 crashes have been recorded at the intersection in the past 5 years, with 13 resulting in injury. Tamaki-Ngapipi is ranked number 10 on the national top 100 list of crash risk intersections.
