Slow, but a 61% success rate at auctions

Image above: The Oxford on Mount St – one apartment sold, one passed in.

It took auctioneer Murray Smith 30 minutes & much twiddling of his thumbs this morning before he banged his hammer down for the sale of one apartment. Next up, there were 3 bidders and a sale ensued in a few minutes.

In 5 sessions this week, auctioneers at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office put through 41 residential properties, 16 of them which I categorise as intensive (apartments, townhouses, suburban units – I wasn’t at all sessions and don’t know if any others were cross-leased).

A year ago, that would have been the throughput on a Wednesday or Thursday morning, so volume is well down.

But the sales ratio under the hammer this week was strong – 25 sold out of 41 homes offered, a 61% success rate. For the intensives, 9 sold out of 16 offered, a 56% success rate.

6 intensive homes sell at auction but “no bids” raise questions

6 of the 10 intensive homes auctioned at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office yesterday were sold under the hammer.

Out of a total residential offering of 20 properties at 2 auctions, 8 were sold, so a strong outcome on intensive dwellings, weaker on standalone homes.

But the more interesting factor arose at the end of the second auction. Of the 7 properties, 2 had sold just short of $1.5 million, 2 had sold below $1 million, one was passed in, and remaining were a cross-leased townhouse at Bucklands Beach and a modest 3-bedroom standalone in Glen Eden. Neither attracted a bid, with the auctioneer closing after seeking a $550,000 start for the Glen Eden home.

In a short few months, the residential market has gone from overpricing enthusiasm to underpricing by neglect, the inability to finance at lower levels or exclusion of likely bidders by regulation.

Auction results, and a market assessment

Amid the noise over a decline in residential sales, it’s important to establish where that’s happening and in what types of market.

In Auckland, it was not at all surprising that a steep rise in prices should be followed by a decline, while Reserve Bank measures tightening borrowing have forced a further decline through the inability to borrow, and the absence of Chinese borrowers this year – compared to auctionrooms last year that were filled with Chinese buyers who appeared to have no limits – has taken further steam out.

The auction results presented below are from Barfoot & Thompson’s cbd apartments auction yesterday – 2 units, one sold – and from residential auctions on Tuesday & Wednesday.

Of the total 13 properties listed below, 8 sold, but the selection I’ve focused on is presented for the geographical mix as much as for the housing type.

Now that Auckland Council’s unitary plan is almost entirely in place, the real estate world has begun presenting more properties for their redevelopment potential, and many of those with such potential at lower prices are in isthmus fringe areas such as Point England & Glen Innes to the east, Mt Roskill & Mt Albert to the west. Unlike the regional fringes where new subdivisions are being developed – on the Hibiscus Coast to the north, across the top of the harbour to the west, and in a number of districts through old Papakura & Franklin to the south – these ones are close to the city centre, within 10km compared to beyond 25km or 40km.

On the isthmus, a house that was once in a bad neighbourhood can now command a price tag above $1 million, and all it’s done is age. Bad neighbourhoods could be defined as having a high state housing ratio, low-decile incomes, large families squeezed into small homes, poorer construction materials, and a general lack of foliage on sections and in streetscapes.

Those new price tags will force the old families out, and little is being created for them to move to. Those price rises in the bad neighbourhoods will also help lift already-soaring prices in the good neighbourhoods – the leafy areas of the eastern suburbs, for example.

Much of the entry-level housing is in cross-leased houses or mostly old brick-&-tile units. The prices for those can be as high as a modern product such as a 3-year-old GJ Gardner home (one in Mt Albert is listed below).

6 intensive units sell out of 15 offered at Barfoot auctions

One of 3 apartments on offer sold at Barfoot & Thompson’s specialist apartments auction on Thursday, another had sold at an auction brought forward to Monday, and a townhouse sold at mortgagee auction on Wednesday.

Then at the later Thursday auctions sessions, one apartment & 2 townhouses sold.

Those 6 intensive-property sales were among 15 sales out of 43 residential properties (including 2 sold prior & one withdrawn) on the agency’s city branch auction lists over Tuesday-Thursday.

Those auction lists for the 3 days compare with lists of 80 properties/day at the height of the market late last year & early this year. The success rate is well down and, although I can’t be sure of how far vendors have bent to achieve a sale on the day, I’m aware that many vendors have met the tougher market over the last few months.
