Auction Report 14 June 2021
There was a very positive response to our 21st Auction Portfolio for 2021 with very active bidding resulting in sales “under the hammer “for 7 of the 8 properties offered For Sale. The buyer response continues to demonstrate confidence particularly in the quality properties we market within our Eastern Beaches area. Again, it was our pleasure to welcome a pleasing attendance to the Headsail room of the Bucklands Beach Yacht Club, the home of Ray White Auctions. Those attending included people who had registered bidding interest, those who had expressed conditional buying interest and obviously those who came along to see what is selling and for what price to give an idea of what is happening very currently in the real estate market. The portfolio included quality properties across our residential areas of Half Moon Bay, Howick, Dannemora, Flat Bush and a family home located in the Goodwood Heights neighbourhood. As highlighted in my recent reports, it was so pleasing to see vendors achieving sale results that allowed them to move on to enjoy their current requirements and buyers delighted to have the opportunity to buy quality properties. People taking a positive attitude, not waiting for life to pass them by or waiting to wait. As also noted in previous weeks reports placing properties “on the market “to sell “under the hammer” was the key factor in vendors being rewarded with further bidding and achieving the pleasing final prices.
Highlights throughout the evening:
• 20C Waterloo Street, Howick got the evening off to a positive start having been brought forward from its 28 June designated auction date due to an unconditional offer that was presented to our vendors and accepted subject the property being submitted to auction at the earlier auction date. It sold “under the hammer “at $1,410,000 and rewarded our Vendors for completing a quality four-bedroom new build townhouse with a Howick Village address

• 27A Sunderlands Road, Half Moon Bay reflected the demand for easier care close to the Half Moon Bay Marina facilities and a two-bedroom home that has been in the same family ownership for over 30 years.

We continue to work with buyer interest for the remaining property to secure a sale that is satisfactory to our vendors. So, after three weeks of marketing, extremely pleasing, positive, competitive bidding, for the seven properties sold under the hammer, but also, 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 excellent prices achieved confirmed our ability to maximise price for our vendors, however, to achieve such results, buyer interest, working with our mortgage broker partners, bidding registrations and actual competitive bidding are the components to achieving great results.
Our 239 Pt View Drive, Howick/ Dannemora lifestyle property was brought forward from its 21 June designated auction date due to an unconditional offer that was presented to our vendors and accepted subject the property being submitted to auction at the earlier auction date.
