Slow, but a 61% success rate at auctions

Image above: The Oxford on Mount St – one apartment sold, one passed in.

It took auctioneer Murray Smith 30 minutes & much twiddling of his thumbs this morning before he banged his hammer down for the sale of one apartment. Next up, there were 3 bidders and a sale ensued in a few minutes.

In 5 sessions this week, auctioneers at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office put through 41 residential properties, 16 of them which I categorise as intensive (apartments, townhouses, suburban units – I wasn’t at all sessions and don’t know if any others were cross-leased).

A year ago, that would have been the throughput on a Wednesday or Thursday morning, so volume is well down.

But the sales ratio under the hammer this week was strong – 25 sold out of 41 homes offered, a 61% success rate. For the intensives, 9 sold out of 16 offered, a 56% success rate.

6 intensive homes sell at auction but “no bids” raise questions

6 of the 10 intensive homes auctioned at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office yesterday were sold under the hammer.

Out of a total residential offering of 20 properties at 2 auctions, 8 were sold, so a strong outcome on intensive dwellings, weaker on standalone homes.

But the more interesting factor arose at the end of the second auction. Of the 7 properties, 2 had sold just short of $1.5 million, 2 had sold below $1 million, one was passed in, and remaining were a cross-leased townhouse at Bucklands Beach and a modest 3-bedroom standalone in Glen Eden. Neither attracted a bid, with the auctioneer closing after seeking a $550,000 start for the Glen Eden home.

In a short few months, the residential market has gone from overpricing enthusiasm to underpricing by neglect, the inability to finance at lower levels or exclusion of likely bidders by regulation.
