7 of 19 intensive homes sell at Barfoot auctions

7 sold at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office auction sessions on Wednesday & Thursday out of 19 intensive living units listed below, which include apartments in both the cbd & suburbia, traditional brick & tile units, some terraces & townhouses and, from the Wednesday afternoon session, some cross-leased properties.

The properties listed below are all intensive in some form, so exclude standalone homes (unless they’re on a cross-lease).

A regular feature of the market is the appearance of properties at various stages of leaky building remediation, and 2 fit that description here.

Every agency handling apartments also has a supply of units in the brand-new Sugartree development’s second stage, Centro, to offer. Ray White City Apartments had 2 yesterday and Barfoots had one – all passed in.

The auction rooms have mostly been quiet, and the distinguishing feature has been the high proportion of the offering which attracted no bid – 6 of those listed here – despite, in some cases, bidders registering.

Kiwi acquires more expansion land at Sylvia Park

Kiwi Property Group Ltd has secured an agreement to acquire a 3.2ha property at 79 Carbine Rd & 10 Clemow Drive in Mt Wellington for $27.1 million.

Chief executive Chris Gudgeon said on Friday: “When combined with our existing landholdings on Carbine Rd & Clemow Drive, this acquisition enables us to consolidate a strategic 7.7ha landholding with a road bridge connection to Sylvia Park over the railway line.

“We have no immediate plans to redevelop the land. However, given our world-class town centre vision for Sylvia Park and Mt Wellington’s status as a metropolitan centre, it makes good sense for us as a long-term investor to increase our landholdings in this strategic location. Kiwi Property’s landholdings in Mt Wellington now total over 30ha, including the main 20.4ha Sylvia Park Shopping Centre site.”

Improvements on the newly acquired property comprise a coolstore, industrial buildings, a truck fuel stop and temporary structures for office & storage. The property is leased to 8 tenants, including Fonterra & VINZ, with current passing income of about $1 million/year and a weighted average lease term of 4.77 years.

Mr Gudgeon said Kiwi would fund the acquisition from existing debt facilities. It’s due to settle this Friday, 13 October.

Kiwi already has 3 expansion projects underway at Sylvia Park – a new dining lane, an office building & a multi-level carpark. A fourth development project, comprising a retail galleria expansion & carpark, is in an advanced planning stage.

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.
