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.

Auction raises more questions than bidders’ hands

Barfoot & Thompson’s apartments auction today raised more questions than bidders’ hands.

In a sparsely population city auctionroom, the 4 properties on offer were a cbd apartment, a cross-lease in Ellerslie, a unit in Papatoetoe where the unit title wasn’t yet issued, and a Glen Innes house on a section – like thousands around Auckland now – with subdivision potential following rezoning.

The Connaught apartment had a bidder, but the margin between them and the vendor was about $200,000, setting the vendor’s target about $20,000 above the price achieved for a larger unit last July, when the market was far more active.

Excluding parking & balcony, the vendor would have been seeking about $14,000/m² internal, compared to a bid set at about $9000/m².

New apartment developments’ prices have moved well above the $10,000/m² that was a benchmark 2 years ago – construction costs have helped push some about $15,000/m² – but for older buildings those sorts of returns raise a question of how much of the windfall arising from price rises over the last 4 years is acceptable or readily achievable.

The Ellerslie cross-lease sold under the hammer after the vendor edged down but the other 2 properties attracted no bid.

A unit where the unit paperwork hadn’t been completed presented a risk most wouldn’t take in a declining market.

And, while the far eastern Tamaki suburbs on the isthmus started to attract more interest late last year, the unitary plan has opened thousands of residential properties up for potential subdivision, negating windfall opportunities and (in theory at least) opening suburbia up to cheaper new housing.

The mindset of cheaper new suburban development hasn’t set in yet, and may need a council push in terms of infrastructure provision & pricing, but the number of sections starting to come to the market indicates enough willingness to sell, and for intensification to gradually get underway.
