Activity in Barfoot & Thompson's auction rooms was almost unchanged in the weeks before and after the general election.
In the week up to and including the weekend of the election (12-18 October) the agency processed 219 auction properties and sold 131 of them, giving an overall sales rate of 60%.
In the week after the auction (19-25 October) the agency processed 214 properties and sold 132 of them, giving an overall sales rate of 62%.
Interest.co.nz has made a slight change to the way it reports Barfoot's auction results.
Previously, the results were displayed by the location of the auctions, but from now on they will be displayed by the location of properties themselves in Auckland's main regional sub-districts of Rodney, North Shore, Waitakere, Central Auckland, Manukau, Pukekohe and Franklin.
The new format is displayed in the table below.
This shows that the most popular district for selling by auction last week was Central Auckland, which includes all of the suburbs previously contained within the boundaries of the former Auckland City Council.
But the area with the highest sales rate (apart from Northland where just one property was auctioned and sold giving a 100% sales rate) was Waitakere on 85%, closely followed by Franklin on 83%.
Details of the individual properties offered and the prices achieved are available on our Residential Auction Results page.
