A crowd of over 100 people was reported participating in the auction and I heard some of the bids breathtaking.

Fifteen bidders registered, some after the auction started, and auctioneer Stu Benson received a total of 64 bids, 46 of which were from two buyers.

Patu Place’s house was sold for $ 1.9 million six months ago.


“It was just great,” Benson said. “The two bidders went to their toes trying to find each other’s limits. No one wanted to give up.”

The final buyer made a “knockout” offer that was $ 9000 higher than the previous bid, with the last few price increases being less than $ 1000. The bidder responded by pushing the bidder card away and applauding.

Louis Carr Real Estate distributor Greg Nicolson said the six-month sharp rise in prices was the result of a significant inventory shortage in the region.

“Cherry Brook’s home sales are only 15 units, which is very low and in high demand in the region, so buyers don’t have many options,” he said.
