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).

Updated: Wairau Valley car yard sells at over $2000/m² at Bayleys auction

Published 18 May 2017, updated 21 & 28 May 2017:
11 of the 21 commercial properties auctioned by Bayleys on Wednesday in its third Total Property portfolio for the year were sold under the hammer. 2 more have been sold post-auction – first, 100 Hinemoa St, Birkenhead, followed by 44 College Hill.

The first were sold, followed by a lull, but 2 of the most expensive offerings were well down the auction list.

One was a Wairau Valley car sales yard, set among a line of lowrise buildings jammed between the Northern Motorway & Wairau Rd on the North Shore, a stretch where the height limit is now 20m under the unitary plan.

The car yard was sold at $2365/m², which means it’s destined for multi-level development.

2 properties were sold for $4 million, both in Henderson. The first was a bank branch on Great North Rd, sold on a 5.5% yield, and the second, a Supercheap Auto outlet in the Lincoln North shopping centre, sold on a 5.3% yield.

7 intensive properties sold out of 19 auctioned at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office over the last 3 days. They include apartments, suburban units, townhouses & homes on cross-leases.

At times the auctionroom was busy, more often quiet – not surprisingly so, given that the agency is putting through about the same number of properties in a week as it was pumping through in a day at the frenzied height of the market last year & briefly this year.

3 auction sessions, 4 sales

12 homes were auctioned for 4 sales at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office this week, short of an active audience each time.

On Wednesday: 8 homes, 3 sold at auction. 2 units on cross-leases, 6 standalone houses.

This morning: One CityLife apartment, a 29-minute auction with little bidding and resulting in sale at a price the vendor had been offered over 3 months ago. It was also the same price as an identical unit 6 storeys up the building was sold for at auction last September. After stalling at $415,000, it was declared on the market and sold after a quick series of $500 raises.

This afternoon: 2 cross-leased suburban units & a house, one of the units sold.

My focus

I report on the general residential auctions primarily from an intensification perspective – apartments as an investment sector, which they largely still are, but last year I added details of cross-leases to these reports because the cross-lease seems both a way of intensifying land coverage and raising land prices while making it harder to extend more intensive uses such as apartment blocks.

Looking at yesterday’s selection of 8 properties, you will see 2 suburban units, one in a single-storey block, the other 2 storeys, effectively “sausage blocks” but on cross-leases.

2 of the houses are on very small sections – 300m² & 344m², and another sits on 475m², all heading towards the modern section of 2-300m², which limits both storage & building expansion.

2 were in the range of the traditional quarter or fifth of an acre (1012 or 809m²), which are often regarded these days as development prospects and priced on that basis. And those land prices vary widely, at yesterday’s auction from about $700/m² up to $4800/m² (ignoring the value of improvements), the differences depending on the suburb they’re in.

Little of that has the young owner-occupier as the next buyer, which means suburban infill will continue as it’s been happening for the last 30 years. If the courts confirm the unitary plan provision of the ability to intensify over a wide swathe of Auckland suburbia, more intensive infill will speed up, competing at times with larger development proposals.
