Auckland property has $1 reserve

ReserveAuction

An Auckland real estate agent is taking a leap of faith in the hot property market – by auctioning his own property for a $1 reserve.

Ray White agent Jared Hards and wife Ashlea have put their 1950s railway cottage in the Auckland suburb of Otahuhu on the market with the minimum reserve price.

Hards said he was always suggesting to vendors that they put their homes to auction so it was a great opportunity to show his faith in the process. “It’s my way of putting my money where my mouth is,” he said. “I trust the auction process and I trust our agent so I know it is not going to sell for just a dollar.”

Fellow agent Jared Cooksley is marketing the renovated Queen St cottage on a 281sq m freehold section. The house, with a CV of $290,000, has two bedrooms and an office, storage and is close to shops and transport.

Cooksley said the $1 reserve was risky but also a good opportunity to grab attention in the fast-growing suburb of Otahuhu.

“It has worked so far with a lot of phone calls and around 20 through the open home on the first day,” Cooksley said. “It is a good house so we have been able to have a bit of fun with it,” he said.

Figures from QV show Otahuhu had one of the fastest-rising house values in Auckland.

Bruce Wiggins from QV said growth was high because it had good transport links with the city and was “the next one along the motorway” from the neighbouring high-performing Mt Wellington.

The property is set to be auctioned on 14 December, unless sold prior.  View the property here on the Ray White Mangere Bridge website.

Top Ray White Offices Show Strength in Marketing

The three largest offices in the Ray White Group, being Ray White City Apartments, Ray White Ponsonby and Ray White Remuera, together with their branch offices, this year continued to market property through the inaugural Christmas/New Year editions of Herald Homes.  This was the first time the New Zealand Herald has run a Homes section over the Christmas/New Year period, which was fully supported by our top Ray White business in Auckland.

Megan Jaffe, Principal of Ray White Remuera and Ray White Orakei said “Our business today is very much focused on our clients and they have an expectation that we will continue to be positively marketing property all year round. In our business plan for 2013 we focused on achieving increased levels of sales turnover for the year and this included us continuing to market property right throughout the 2013/2014 holiday season.”

Herald Christmas Marketing 2013Simon Damerell from the Damerell Earwaker Group with Ray White offices in Ponsonby, Grey Lynn and Pt Chevalier, said that the marketing campaign had an overwhelming positive response. “Last week we held over 20 open homes and we had large numbers of buyers through our properties and this has allowed us and clients to achieve our highest ever result in December together with a good number of offers in the first weeks of January, which would not normally be achieved.”

Phil Horrobin from the City Realty Group with Ray White offices in the City and Broadway, said that his salespeople in particular appreciated the opportunity to be able to use the New Zealand Herald to continue marketing campaigns throughout December and January.  He said “Our business is a 12 month business and it is important to know that today clients expectations to be able to make contact with us at all times is part of the reason why our team has had such success over the holiday period.”

Graeme Fraser, Auckland Business Performance Manager for Ray White, said that the marketing, in collaboration with the New Zealand Herald, was a resounding success. “It has allowed our top businesses and salespeople to continue with their marketing campaigns. This will now become part of our annual strategy to ensure that we are seen as a business the operates on the basis of our clients and continues to achieve the best outcomes.”
