Prices at Harcourts auctions started at $480,000 in Auckland, $327,000 in Christchurch

This earthquake damaged house at St Martins sold for $327,000.

New Zealand’s largest real estate agency sold just over half the properties it took to auction in the week from 11-17 September.

Harcourts auctioned 108 homes around the country and 58 of them sold either under the hammer or shortly afterwards, giving a sales clearance rate of 54%.

The biggest concentration of auctioned properties was in Auckland where 45 went under the hammer and sales were achieved on 20 of them, giving a clearance rate of 44%.

That was followed by Christchurch where 39 properties went under the hammer and sales were achieved on exactly two thirds of them (66.6%).

At the Auckland auctions prices ranged from $480,000 for a two bedroom apartment at Flat Bush, to $1.71 million for a house at Northcote.

In Christchurch prices ranged from $327,000 for an earthquake damaged house on a large section in Saint Martins to $1.2 million for a house in Merivale.
