Commercial property prices started at $157,000 – latest sales from Colliers and Knight Frank

This property on Rennie Drive in Mangere sold for $1.4 million.

The latest commercial property sales from Colliers International and Knight Frank ranged in price from $157,500 for a development site at Rolleston near Christchurch, to $1.77 million for a retail property in Palmerston North, putting them well within reach of investors with relatively modest amounts to invest.

Well located retail premises in Auckland continue to sell for high prices and low yields that would rival those being achieved for residential investment properties, with a block of shops at Onehunga providing its new owners with a net yield of 5.15%.

Further down the line, the new owners of a retail property in Palmerston North will be making 9.31% from the property they purchased.
