Results from our 22nd February Auction

Auction Report 22 February 2021

Our 22 February portfolio was the 5th for 2021 and included a quality 11 properties across our
residential areas of Pakuranga, Bucklands Beach, Howick, Cockle Bay, Sunnyhills & Golflands.

The Headsail Room at the Bucklands Beach Yacht Club, the home of Ray White Auctions, again,
attracted a pleasing number of people who had registered bidding interest, along with our Vendors.
Social distancing was observed due to lockdown restrictions.

Very active bidding and a very pleasing level of “under the hammer” sales was clearly evident.

24 February 2021

After a busy Monday evening we finalised 3 properties that were brought forward from their 1
March scheduled auction date, due to unconditional offers that were presented to our vendors and
accepted subject to the properties being submitted to auction.

  • The bidding for 47 Packspur Drive, Mission Heights started at the preauction offer at $1,260,000
    and after some 40 competitive bids sold “under the hammer” at $1,371,000
  • 16 Pine Terrace, Howick offered buyers spacious family accommodation, section size and privacy
    selling “under the hammer “at $1,740,000
  • 48 Cockle Bay Road, Cockle Bay started at the pre-auction offer at $2,250,000 and after 5 bids
    sold “under the hammer “at $2,320,000 – a reflection of the demand for style, floor place space,
    outdoor living, views and sought after neighbourhood position.

So, after three plus weeks of marketing, in some cases a marketing period of less than three weeks,
there has been extremely pleasing, positive, competitive bidding and great results for our vendors
whose properties sold under the hammer. It needs to be acknowledged that the sales provided
buyers with an opportunity to buy quality real estate assets knowing that while having to
competitively bid/ buy to be the “winner” they were bidding/buying property that was also the first
choice for a number of other buyers.

The prices achieved confirmed our ability to maximise price for our vendors, however, to achieve
such results, buyer interest, bidding registrations and actual competitive bidding are the
components to achieving great results.
