The number of homes being put up for auction is starting to wind down as we head towards autumn and the end of the peak summer selling season.

Last week Bayleys marketed 47 residential properties for auction, spread across Auckland, the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Havelock North and Marlborough. It achieved sales on 17 of them, giving an overall sales clearance rate of 36%.

At the Auckland auctions prices achieved ranged from $822,000 for a three bedroom/two bathroom, brick and tile house at Flat Bush to $3.75 million for a large four bedroom house in Parnell.

At the Hamilton auction prices started at $572,000 for a three bedroom brick house on a hectare of land at Matamata, and at the Tauranga auction just three properties were scheduled for auction but two were withdrawn, leaving a two bedroom property at Greerton which sold for $450,000.

In Havelock North a large, two level home in the centre of town sold under the hammer for $845,000, and in Marlborough prices ranged from $400,000 to $1.55 million.
