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.

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.

Auction market in doldrums

Judging by the biggest auction series by Auckland’s biggest residential agency, Barfoot & Thompson – the mid-week auctions at its Shortland St rooms – this aspect of the housing market is well & truly in the doldrums.

In the last 2 days, Barfoots had 63 residential properties listed for auction at its city office and sold 25 of them, including 6 sold before their scheduled auction date. That’s a 40% clearance rate, or 33% excluding the sold priors.

At the Thursday morning session for apartments & commercial properties, one of the 5 apartments and one of the 2 commercial properties were sold.

One question outsiders can’t answer is how much vendors are prepared to come down to get a sale in the auctionroom. My understanding is that most vendors have discounted below their set reserve where there’s been evidence of buyer interest, but on many properties buyers haven’t made any offer, even if only to test the vendor’s resolve.

Compared to daily auction lists of up to 80 properties a couple of months ago and in the second half of last year, recent auction lists have been more than halved and Barfoots has cut the simultaneous auction in an adjoining room from the schedule.

It’s not just the auction list that’s been cut. Bidder numbers are also well down, and the propensity of Chinese investors to relentlessly bid higher appears over. They’ve joined locals in sitting on their hands, either from concern about the direction of the market or because government, Reserve Bank & commercial bank rule changes have forced them out of the market.

Outside the dedicated Thursday morning apartments auction, Barfoots auctioned 21 intensive residential properties over 2 days – a mix of apartments, suburban units & townhouses and cross-leased homes. 10 were sold under the hammer and 4 attracted no bid.

The auction outcomes reported below are from those 2 Wednesday sessions and the Thursday afternoon auction. The Thursday morning apartments & commercial auction results are in a separate story (link below).
