14 of 36 intensive homes sell through auction

14 intensive homes sold in the auctionroom or shortly after, out of 36 offered at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office in 6 sessions from Tuesday-Thursday this week.

They were a mix of cbd & suburban apartments, suburban units & townhouses, and some cross-leases (I ignore standalone homes not on cross-lease sections, and also didn’t manage to check for cross-leases at every auction session).

Many were passed in without a bid offered, and were back on the market soon after with a price stipulated.

Warehouse sells at auction, but intensive residential sector mired in “no bids”

An Onehunga warehouse sale started Barfoot & Thompson’s regular weekly commercial & apartments auction on a strong footing yesterday, but the entire residential auction market has been much weaker for months.

The apartments segment of the Thursday morning auction saw 2 of the 7 cbd apartments sold under the hammer, one of them a certainty in an auction brought forward.

Over 2 days, of the 26 intensive residential properties I logged (including cross-leases at only one of 3 auction sessions), 7 were sold at auction and one shortly after. 8 attracted no bid, and 2 were withdrawn from auction.

The intensive segment of the market covers a wide spread of homes, from apartments in the city centre to houses on cross-leased sites in suburbia. The steadiest part of that market is the supply of traditional brick & tile suburban units, on either ground level or one up, usually with the parking that many apartments don’t offer, and with less likelihood of the horrendous costs incurred in remediation when leaks are discovered.

Bayleys apartment action slow

Bayleys sold 2 northern beach properties under the hammer at its auction yesterday, but action in the apartment sector was slow.

A beach house at 10 Kokopu St, Omaha, sold for $1.575 million and another at 6 Breve St, Mangawhai Heads, sold for $1.125 million.

A new unit in the Hereford Residences just down from the transforming Karangahape Rd received no bid, a cross-leased unit in Mt Albert was passed in, a Glen Eden townhouse was withdrawn from the auction list and put back on the market with a price tag, and the receiver’s auction of a Parnell townhouse was postponed  fortnight.

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).
