One apartment out of 6 sells, Sugartree bids fall short

Just one of the 6 apartments auctioned at Ray White City Apartments yesterday was sold under the hammer.

The one sale, of a unit in the Spencer on Byron in Takapuna where there are remediation expenses, followed a contest between 4 bidders.

There were also multiple bidders for 2 units in stage 2 of the Sugartree development at the top of Nelson St, Centro, on the western edge of the cbd, where off-the-plan buyers took ownership last month. However, bidding on both petered out short of the reserve.

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.

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).
