The Ray White Ponsonby office through agent Jan George and Aaron Haabjoern, recently completed a sale at 23 Cowan Street, Ponsonby which resulted in a record sale price in excess of $2.3 mil. The property was market by Auction and is a 19th century traditional villa with 21st century architecture designed by local architect Ken Crosson and sat on a section size of 758m2. The property features five bedrooms with two bathrooms and a four car garage. The property included a generous area for entertainment, and came complete with a pool and separate spa.
In being marketed by Auction the property was feature displayed in the New Zealand herald, together with internet marketing on trademe and realestate.co.nz. The home was viewed by 230 groups over a 3 week marketing campaign. The Auction night saw 8 registered bidders with 5 0f those bidders participating up to a bidding level of $2.3 mil.
Simon Damerell co-owner of Ray White Ponsonby said that the sale reflected the continuing desire for people to live in the Ponsonby area in a quality home. We have strived over a long period of time to ensure the success of our Auction programmes and with our complete focus on our team getting more for vendors, this is a result of that team effort.
Ray White City Apartments are considered the leaders in apartment selling through the Auckland CBD area. As part of their sales strategy they have a high success with auction marketing and this is shown in their recent clearance figures, which have been in excess of 70% during the past quarter.
Damien Piggin and Daniel Horrobin, who work together as a partnership, have shown how the combination of marketing and auctions come together in subdued market conditions to give vendors, in most cases, a better than expected sales result.
Co-business owner Phil Horrobin said “The concept of marketing auctions does require a balance of print media and online marketing and this in many cases requires the vendors to consider a programme which will allow their property to be seen across a broad audience. The City apartment market is consistently active with buyers; however given the amount of stock that is available we request vendors consider taking their property to the next level of marketing with our company, who have a proven success rate with auction marketing.” He went on to say “This is proven with two of their Elite salespeople Damien Piggin and Daniel Horrobin, who work in a very successful partnership, and have consistently shown the value of marketing through their high success rates.”
Ray White City Apartments have the highest level of marketing each weekend in the New Zealand Herald and also dominate the Trade Me feature market to ensure vendors not only get the best value from their marketing but also have a broad range offering in the online and print media areas.
The Ray White Group in New Zealand is proud to announce our 2010 marketing and promotion campaign. The campaign is designed to give all Ray White clients, with the assistance of their local Ray White Real Estate Office, the ability to market their property and to increase profile, presentation and buyer response within a targeted period with upgraded promotion and also subsidised rates.
2010 so far has shown properties that are well marketed through controlled concepts, both online and through media, have very good buyer response. This campaign, through national and local media together with online marketing and property promotion, is designed to maximise buyer response to each and every property that Ray White is currently marketing as well as for those clients who are considering listing their property with Ray White.
The campaign will run during September and each Ray White licensee salesperson has information on the campaign. We believe supporting our clients with increased buyer response will inevitably lead to more success for property sales on behalf of Ray White clients.
For further information please contact anyone of our 134 Ray White offices, who will provide information on our 2010 marketing and promotion campaign.
