    Not at all. I just feel we need a sense of balance amongst all the gloom mongerers. The negative tide is turning - and I'll show why on another thread.

    Two Auckland houses have sold for well over their reserves after drawing big crowds at open homes and auctions.
    Jane Palmer, of LJ Hooker, said the fact that interest rates had hit a new low was thought to be part of the impetus for strong bidding on the properties.
    Ian Jowsey, sales manager and auctioneer for LJ Hooker Ponsonby, said Wednesday's 6pm auction drew 150 to 180 people and strong bidding for both places.
    A house at 37 Pine St in the Mt Eden/Balmoral area was valued at $590,000, had a reserve of $625,000 and sold for $730,000.
    "Rich in character is this refurbished three- to four-bedroom transitional villa," the agency said, citing west-facing indoor/outdoor flow to a generous lawn, in a quiet street and near popular schools, village shops and transport.
    The second house, at 63 Mulgan St in New Windsor, had a reserve of $280,000, was valued at $350,000 and sold for $340,000. It was marketed as needing work.

    You have my sympathies. I fondly remember the days of the gas torch and sander. That’s why I now build in brick and aluminium!

    A house at 278a Remuera Road, Auckland has just sold for $1.9m – exactly its 2008 rating valuation – indicating no drop in property values over the past year.

    Except it has historic value which would not feature in the QV. It's no indication of the property market.

    The property has had historic value for decades – If QV do the job some posters here think they do then that value would have been recognised in previous valuations. And if people think they can hang 7,800 sales, from housing stock of 1.6m houses, out as “The Market” then the three recent Auckland sales on this thread can surely be used as an indicator.

    If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?

    Sure three properties is a small sample size over a couple of days - but so is the sample size the doom gloom people like to use. Remember theis is the Goods News thread so a bit of statistical liscence could be forgiven.
