A leasehold Princes Wharf studio sold at Ray White City Apartments’ auction today, but the other 4 units on offer were all passed in.
A Princes Wharf apartment was passed in at City Sales’ auction today after 2 offers from the one bidder.
On a quiet day, 2 apartments on the auction list, there’s only one bidder in the room and nobody on the phone… Barfoot & Thompson chief auctioneer Murray Smith tried: “$200,000?” he asked for the first lot up.
The generally quiet time in residential auctionrooms was emphasised in 3 sessions at Barfoot & Thompson’s city office on Wednesday & Thursday.
One of 3 apartments on offer sold at Barfoot & Thompson’s specialist apartments auction on Thursday, another had sold at an auction brought forward to Monday, and a townhouse sold at mortgagee auction on Wednesday.
When you see the results of auctions, the sale prices almost invariably end with 3 zeroes. Imagine, then, a bid of a seemingly random number which even the bidder looked like having trouble remembering.
