Two thirds of the commercial properties offered at Bayleys' Auckland auction didn't receive any bids

Two thirds of the commercial properties offered at Bayleys' Auckland auction didn't receive any bids
This warehouse/office in Morrinsville sold for $640,000.

Bayleys' latest commercial property auctions in Auckland and the Waikato produced widely different results, with everything selling at the Hamilton auction while things were a lot slower in Auckland.

The Auckland auction had a smaller number of properties on offer compared to Bayley's recent commercial auctions and the crowd that attended was also smaller.

There were just six properties on offer, four industrial buildings, one retail premises and one office suite and most of them were of a size that would have appealed to private investors.

However, four of the properties were passed in without receiving any bids apart from a couple of vendor bids to try and kick-start the proceedings, and the two that sold each had just a single bidder.

Of the two that sold, one was a 765 square metre warehouse/office on a corner site in East Tamaki, which sold for $2.38 million, providing a net yield of 5.4% and the other was a 160 square metre warehouse/office with three car parks, also in East Tamaki, that was sold vacant for $715,000.

At Bayleys' Hamilton auction all four properties on offer found new owners. These were:

  • 73 Duke St, Cambridge. A 979 square medical centre sold for $2.55 million, providing a yield of 5.41%.
  • 22B Empire St, Cambridge. A vacant 39 square metre retail premises sold for $345,000.
  • 32 Lorne St, Morrinsville. A 330 square metre warehouse/office on a 716 square metre site, sold for $640,000 providing a yield of 4.73%.
  • 7/145 Ingram Rd, Rukuhia. A brand new 207 square metre industrial unit, sold vacant to an owner-occupier for $502.000.

Photographs and further details of all the properties sold at both auctions are available on our Commercial Property Sales page.

100% sales rate could be either due to very motivated buyers, or very motivated sellers.

The yield detail for 32 Lorne st suggests it was the buyer. What's the CJDGM factor tell you

Cambridge town is humming along at present.houses are selling pretty quickly and you can never get a park in the cbd due to all the people shopping and eating out!!!still not convinced it will keep going after the wage supplement runs out.there is a lot of money in this little town so we'll see what happens in Sept Oct.

This article has a real urban-rural divide theme going on. Watching the big places misbehave on tv every night gives one a feeling that things might be turning for the big smoke. And not in a good way. If you add in the dreaded commute & sprinkle it with some hi-tech home working options & the wide open spaces suddenly start looking quite good again.
