Auction activity has continued to warm up in the Auckland CBD, with City Sales hitting the 100% mark last month, with, as Scott Dunn says, “Some of the most competitive bidding we’ve seen in a long while. Our auction success rate stands at 74% for 2020 so far, which is very good.”

The City Sales website reported it as follows, “Competitive bidding meant a 100% clearance rate at this week's City Sales apartment auction There was a small crowd at this week's City Sales auction of Auckland apartments but they meant business and all four properties on offer were sold under the hammer, including an apartment in a leaky building.

City Sales director Martin Dunn said a feature of the market over the last few weeks had been a pick-up in buying interest from owner-occupiers while investors were tending to be more cautious.
