Harcourts' auction rooms busy from Auckland to Invercargill last week: The full results
This house at Glen Eden in west Auckland sold for $500,000.

What sort of home can you get in Auckland for half a million dollars these days?

The cheapest Auckland property sold at auction by Harcourts last week went for exactly $500,000.

It was a two bedroom plus study, weatherboard house on a 544 square metre section (pictured)  in the west Auckland suburb of Glen Eden.

A second bathroom laundry had been added which was consented, but the work was yet to receive its final Code Compliance Certificate.

The agency's promotional material suggested the property would be suitable to rent out, renovate or remove and redevelop the site.

The most expensive Auckland home sold at last weeks' Harcourts' auctions was a house at Campbells Bay on the North Shore that went for $2.38 million.

See below for the full results of Harcourts' auctions last week, including those in the Waikato, Taupo, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Kapiti, Christchurch, Blenheim and Invercargill

House my family sold 8 years ago 235k

sold at auction 21/4/16 551k
good job if you can get it.

Greg - do you have the results for Barfoot last week? Am particularly interested on how much 901/11 Liverpool sold as it have moved around agencies for a couple of months before finally being sold.

Family homes on full sections, priced 400 - 500k, in Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, etc are selling briskly.
Is this catchup from the 2009 - 2015 doldrums?

Define full section and family home...I don't remember the last time I saw those priced between 400-500k in Tauranga.

Last i heard, a 1/4 acre was the standard. Sounds about right.
