Barfoot and Thompson
After a 5-bedroom Epsom home was sold under the hammer at Barfoot & Thompson’s residential auction at its city branch yesterday afternoon, three-quarters of the gallery of about 100 potential buyers filed out of the auctionroom.
Both average & median prices for homes sold through Barfoot & Thompson in May were stuck in narrow grooves. Sales were up compared to recent months, but still well below the level a year ago.
4 of the 9 apartments, townhouses & cross-leased homes auctioned at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office on Wednesday were sold under the hammer.
In 2 Barfoot & Thompson city office auction sessions on Wednesday offering a total 35 residential properties, 13 were apartments, townhouses or flats and 4 of those were sold.
Barfoot & Thompson director Kiri Barfoot said in the agency’s monthly market report yesterday that, while uncertainty plagued the Auckland residential market and affected sale numbers, prices of those properties that did sell remained rock solid.
