New zones highlighted for residential sales

The potential of new zoning under Auckland’s unitary plan is becoming a strong point for residential land sales as auction prices for houses decline and far more properties are passed in this year than last.

That was the case with 2 properties sold at Bayleys auctions this week, and a third had the existing commercial use as an attraction.

In the city centre, a 2-bedroom Metropolis apartment was sold under the hammer.

Square metre calculations below are based on more intensive use, excluding the value of the existing house.

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.

11 intensive residential properties sell at Barfoot auctions

31 intensive properties were auctioned at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office over Tuesday-Wednesday, excluding the Thursday commercial & apartments-only session (see separate report), and 11 of them have been sold.

7 were sold under the hammer, one prior and 3 post-auction.

The 31 properties on offer included one cbd apartment, 20 on cross-leases and 6 offering development prospects.

The results from those sessions are listed below in their geographic areas and then by suburb.

At the Thursday commercial & apartments auction, 2 of the 4 apartments on offer were sold under the hammer, another listed for that auction session was sold earlier, and a commercial site with residential development consent was passed in but expected to sell under the multi-offer process today.

The agency returned to simultaneous auctions in 2 rooms for the Wednesday sessions, a rarity as the market has slowed, and put a total 96 properties up for sale, including standalone suburban homes (excluding the Thursday apartments session), and sold 34 under the hammer & 5 post-auction. Another 9 were sold prior. 30 didn’t attract a bid, but some of those were sold shortly after the auction.

The constant question is: “What’s happening to the market?” There isn’t one answer. Apartments differ from suburban properties, cross-leasing doesn’t seem to worry too many, vendors are learning to take less of the windfall that was available until a few months ago and snipping their reserves under pressure.

19 intensive properties sell at 3 Barfoot sessions

In 3 auction sessions at its city rooms on Wednesday & Thursday, Barfoot & Thompson sold 17 intensive properties out of 28 on offer, and another 2 shortly after the auction – a 68% clearance rate.

12 of those properties are on cross-leases, some of them fullscale houses, but I rate them as intensive because they do intensify land use and certainly affect land values.

The auctionrooms are mostly quieter, and the process much slower as vendors negotiate for an immediate sale or hang in for what might ultimately not be a sale at a higher figure.

I’ve reported separately on the agency’s apartments & commercial auction on Thursday morning, when one of 2 commercial properties and 3 of the 4 apartments were sold.
