It was a busy week in Barfoot & Thompson's auction rooms last week with the number of properties on offer shooting up to 200 from 145 the previous week.
That was an especially strong result given that it was the first week of the school holidays, which can often have a dampening effect on auction activity.
The school holidays didn't seem to affect the sales rate either, with sales achieved on two thirds (66%) of the properties on offer.
That was down from 74% the previous week, although that was an unusually high clearance rate.
The sales rates for properties in the main districts of North Shore, Waitakere, the central suburbs and Manukau were all above 60% (see the table below for the full district breakdown).
By any measure, the latest results suggest the market remains firm as we proceed through the winter season.
Details of the individual properties offered at all of the auctions monitored by interest.co.nz, and the results achieved, are available on our Residential Auction Results page.
