Latest Bayleys commercial property auction
October 22, 2014
This shop in New Lynn sold for $393,000 providing its new owners with a net yield of just 3.6%.
It seems investors can’t get enough of small retail units and that was the case at Bayleys latest auction of Auckland commercial units, when a small shop in the west Auckland suburb of New Lynn was sold at a net yield of just 3.6%, while a block of three shops at Three Lamps in Ponsonby will be returning their new owner a yield of 5.3%.
At the other other end of the scale a canny couple got themselves a steal when they picked up an industrial unit at Silverdale that will be providing them with a net yield of almost 10%.
Several vacant commercial properties also sold under the hammer at the same auction and there was strong competition for a Howick motel offered as a freehold going concern.
Overall there were 17 properties offered for sale by auction on the day, with most of them being of a size that would put them within reach of private investors and family trusts. Seven were sold under the hammer, one was sold conditionally and nine were passed in for sale by negotiation.
