Who’s Moving in Remuera real estate?

Posted by Steve Koerber on June 30, 2009

These days I sell homes throughout Remuera and in some surrounding suburbs.  When I first started selling in Remuera in 1998 I decided to focus predominantly in one area – Southern Remuera.  Since then it’s been my mission to become the agent of choice in that area. 

If you live on the southern slopes of Remuera you’ll probably be familiar with my monthly statistical newsletter ‘Who’s Moving”.  I believe it’s the best statistical real estate newsletter available to local residents for the following reasons:

1.  It provides an accurate snapshot of the exact state of the market on Remuera’s southern side. 

2.  It takes my assistant Anne and myself several days to research and compile it at the end of each month.

3.  It is totally transparent.  If any company lists or sells a property in my area, that property will be included in it.  Private listings and sales are included also.

4.  Sales methods, listed prices, sale prices and CVs of all properties are included.

5.  Compiling my newsletter helps me to know my marketplace even better.  I can walk into a house and (usually) quite accurately predict its value based on recent sales, without needing to research recent sales. 

6.  Some locals have kept my newsletters for years.  It’s a great way for them to keep abreast of the likely value of their own home, compared to those that have sold nearby.

7.  Readers can instantly spot the market leader – the firm that is listing and selling more property than any other firm – Barfoot & Thompson.

How accurate is your new Capital Valuation (CV)?

Posted by Steve Koerber on October 21, 2008

Auckland City Council is required by law to revalue all properties every three years.  If you would like to check the Capital Value (CV) of any property in Auckland here is the link to the Auckland City Council webpage.

What does your Capital Value mean?

It is an assessment of the probable price that would have been paid, including land and buildings, for the property if it had been sold on 1 July 2008, updated to reflect changes in properties up to 30 June 2008.

It is not the market value for a property.

The capital value does not include chattels which will need to be added on when estimating an appropriate sale price.

How close to my CV will my house sell for?

You should use your CV as a very “very” rough guide.  Your CV could potentially be 30% or more out, either above or below your real market value.  I have sold many homes for figures that vary from one extreme to the other when compared with their CV.

As an example, a property I sold after a competitive auction in September 2008 had a 2005 CV of $1,130,000 at the time of the sale.  The new 2008 CV is $1,370,000.  It was in a street in which many homes had sold in the $1,000,000 to $3,000,000 range in the three years since 2005, hence the apparent increase in value.  The sale price however was only $1,060,000.  The council got this one very wrong.

There are many other examples of homes that have recently sold in excess of the new 2008 CVs. 

How values are assessed

The process of revaluation reflects the changing nature of Auckland city, it’s development as New Zealand’s largest centre of commercial activity, and it’s growing population. Properties are valued on a site by site basis and in context with other properties in the area and other suburbs.

The valuation process consists of the following main stages:

  1. Property inspections

Before each three yearly revaluation council inspects approximately half of all residential properties from the roadside to check that their records are up to date.

Checking half the properties means that every property will receive an inspection each six years. In addition, council inspects between 5,000 and 6,000 properties annually as a result of building consent revaluations.

For each inspected property, council checks the property classification (ie house, town house, apartment, factory or shop) to see that it is correct. They review improvements made to the property, including garages and pools, to see whether any have been made or removed since the previous valuation. They also review the quality and condition rating of improvements. Land attributes, such as view and contour, are checked for accuracy and consistency with surrounding properties.

  1. Sales and rental analysis

Valuers review what properties are selling and renting for in your area.

Council obtains information about residential and commercial rental levels from various sources (tenancy services, market surveys, real estate agents, property management companies).

  1. Valuer General’s audit

The Rating Valuations Act 1998 requires the Valuer General to audit revaluations before giving approval for the values to be published.

A rigorous audit process is carried out over a period of three weeks. This audit

  • checks the processes used to prepare the revaluation
  • carries out statistical analysis of sales to determine the accuracy of the assessed values
  • may require random checks of properties.
  1. Publishing of proposed values

Once the Valuer General approves the process and the values, council publishes a public notice and sends out a valuation notice for each separate rating unit to the owner of the property and the ratepayer, if different. The notice advises the new values and the closing date for objections.

  1. An objection period

The Rating Valuations Regulations 1998 prescribes that objections must be lodged before the expiry of the date specified in the public notice. The objection period is 30 working days calculated from the date of the public notice for general revaluation and 20 working days for other valuations.

  1. Property rates setting

Council uses finalised values for setting rates from 1 July of the year following their publication unless they have been amended as a result of an objection review or there has been a change to the property. They continue to use the published values for setting rates until the objection is finalised.

They use the annual value rating system, which means property values will be based on either:

  • the amount a property might earn in one year if rented (the estimated gross less 20 per cent, or 10 per cent if there are no buildings on the land) or
  • 5 per cent of the property’s capital value

It is a requirement of the Rating Valuations Act 1998 that they use the highest figure of these two options to determine the rateable value of the property. This means that a sample of residential and commercial property owners will receive an enquiry requesting rental information.

Auckland house prices fall by $416 per day in June 2008

Posted by Steve Koerber on July 11, 2008

Today’s NZ Herald headlines shouted the above statistic.  Auckland’s median had gone from $447,000 to $435,000 in just one month.  Low sales volumes were a major contributor.

Four months ago, in March 2008, I wrote this:  “In a few months (say May 2008 we may see a headline that says “Auckland house prices falling by $100 per week”.  By the time a headline like that is published, the decline is likely to have stopped, and the buyers are likely to have returned to the market en masse.”

So, it seems I got the figures a tad wrong.  Are buyers flooding back to the market as I write this?  No they’re not, but I can’t remember a winter in which sales numbers were at all bullish.  When buyers sense that prices are right, they will come of out of the woodwork.  Anyone who is buying right now will tell you they feel good about the price they are paying.  Did they say that during 2006/7?  No they didn’t.

Imagine the opportunites that are about to present themselves to buyers. 

On a personal note – 2007 was my best year in real estate.  More sales, more income than ever!  This year, 2008, I am tracking better than I was last year.  Fact.  The negativity, falling prices, fewer buyers etc, are simply not slowing my business.  If anything, real sellers are calling me, because (if I do say so myself :), I am selling homes without too much difficulty in this market.  The difference?  Experience and skill.

Slow real estate market in Auckland? Yeah right!

Posted by Steve Koerber on February 3, 2008

Not boasting but…surely the following is good to know if you’re interested in Auckland real estate….

During the eleven day period between 24 January 2008 and 4 February 2008 I was  involved in the sale of seven homes.  One contract didn’t go through, so that’s six sales.  Better than one every two days.  And tomorrow I’m presenting another offer.  I like these slow markets, they’re good.

Update:  as of 7 Feb 08, a further two sales.  Eight sales in 2 weeks.

Update:  as of 14 Feb 08, Nine sales in 3 weeks.

Update:  as of 5 Mar 08, Twelve sales in 6 weeks.

Update:  as of 11 Sep 08, Ten sales in 5 weeks.

Auckland residential property prices have doubled every nine years since 1954

Posted by Steve Koerber on January 19, 2008


Every year since 1954, Barfoot & Thompson, Auckland’s oldest and largest real estate company, has recorded the annual average sale price of residential property in Auckland.

View graph here:  Auckland residential property is a proven performer

Have a look at the attached graph that shows the rise and rise of Auckland prices.  It is quite remarkable.  Over the last 53 years only a handful of years were negative.  Most years saw positive growth.  According to these numbers, residential property has doubled in value about every nine years.

You’ll notice that this graph ends in 2007.  The 2008 average sale price was $513,000.  So far in 2009 the average sale price is $510,000.  Enjoy!
