Ray White Queenstown has received a significant appointment to sell down 20 sections in the Jacks Point development. Located just outside of Queenstown, the Jacks Point development has 600 lots in total with about 200 lots in private ownership. Section sizes range from 800 to 1,200sqm. The sections that Ray White Queenstown is auctioning are in the prime area of the subdivision and have government valuations of $450,000 to $550,000. The majority of the sections are around 1,100sqm.
Bas Smith, the co-owner of Ray White Queenstown, said that the vendor bought the sites from the original developer in 2006. He said “Jacks Point is arguably one of the best residential developments in New Zealand and given the prices have been adjusted by almost 50% on the valuation, these sections represent outstanding value.”
Sales manager for Ray White Queenstown, Wayne Cafe, said that the reserves for the sections had already been set at $165,000 to $205,000. He said that the sale of the sections must go ahead and the prices have been set accordingly to ensure that every section is sold on auction day.
The Jacks Point development is a 1,200 hectare project located 15 minutes out of Queenstown. The precinct has approval for golf, housing and entertainment. There are currently more than 20 homes being built and another 80 or so properties have gone through the design review process and are expected to be built in the next 12 months.

Ray White has been positioned in the Queenstown market for just on five years. Over that time the business has made steady progress whereby today it is considered to be one of the market leaders. Last month the office achieved the top position in New Zealand.
In speaking with one of the business owners, Bas Smith, he attributed the result to a consistent focus on listing and marketing for the business. The brand awareness he said has continued to grow with their market share and the fact that momentum is creating momentum.
As part of the month’s sales there was a mixture from a $300,000 unit in Cardrona through to a large development site of just over $3 million. The office has attracted a number of top people who have made a difference to the business. Mary Turnbull recently joined the office from Locations and Bas said that her focus and leadership was already showing dividends.
