Bayleys sold two thirds of the Auckland homes they took to auction this week (week ending 10 March), which was one of the best general auction room results we’ve seen for a while.
Sales were achieved on 17 of the 26 Auckland homes marketed for sale by auction this week, giving a clearance rate of 66%.
However results were more mixed down the line, with five of the 22 properties at the Hamilton auction finding new owners, one of the four properties auctioned in Matamata was sold, and in Hawke’s Bay three of the four properties auctioned were sold.
Notable sales at the Auckland auctions included a two bedroom apartment with a car park in the Metropolis building in the CBD that sold for $577,000, a clifftop property on a 1133 square metre site in Glendowie that fetched $3.217 million, and a large home on 3854 square metres of park-like grounds at Muriwai Beach that went for $1.48 million.
In Hamilton a villa on a 7.8 hectare section at Whatawhata went for $2 million, at Marewa in Napier a classic three bedroom bungalow on a 921 square metre section (pictured) sold for $430,000 and in Matamata a four bedroom house fetched $685,000.
