5 apartments out of 12 sell at auction

5 of the 12 apartments auctioned at Ray White City Apartments yesterday sold under the hammer.

2 vendors had 2 apartments each up for sale and none of them sold first time round. 2 of those units in the leasehold Landings at Quay Park (pictured) sold when offered together, but the other vendor’s pair, in the Zest complex, remained unsold.

Units sold in Kiwi on Queen, Mount Terrace and at Thompson Park in Mt Wellington.

At the bottom of the market, a unit in the Unitec student accommodation village, where remediation is required, attracted just 2 bids and was passed in at $2000.

Kohi unit & St Heliers house sell, but 15 other homes passed in

The first property up for sale at Barfoot & Thompson’s apartments & houses auction this morning – a large cross-leased unit just off Tamaki Drive in Kohimarama – was sold under the hammer, and the third offering of the day, a house in St Heliers, was also sold.

The other 15, including 5 other apartments, a terrace & a suburban unit with sleepout, were all passed in.

Barfoot’s moved to a dedicated apartments & commercial auction on Thursday mornings at its city office a couple of years ago, but struggled to get a large selection – when the agency’s city residential property business could run through 80 auctions in a day, 2 sessions in 2 auctionrooms.

The agency’s commercial branch has rarely offered more than 2 properties at these auctions, while apartment numbers have also dwindled.

So today’s offering was a novelty – 9 houses and a larger selection of intensive housing than usual – but with an outcome that’s become commonplace since the residential markets started to turn downward around 18 months ago.
