‘Tears and joy’ as owner nets<br />

bonus $100k at auction<br />

• By Nikki Preston<br />

THE OWNERS of a family<br />

home in Fendalton were<br />

brought to tears after their<br />

property of almost 20 years<br />

sold under the hammer for at<br />

least $100,000 more than what<br />

they were expecting.<br />

Bidding for the four-bedroom,<br />

two-bathroom Bryndwr<br />

Rd home opened at $900,000, it<br />

was announced on the market<br />

at $1.21 million, and eventually<br />

sold for $1.335m after 30 bids<br />

were placed at the Harcourts<br />

Grenadier auction last week.<br />

Harcourts<br />

Grenadier<br />

salesperson<br />

Sean Innes said<br />

there were five<br />

groups actively<br />

bidding until it<br />

Sean Innes<br />

reached about<br />

$1.2m when<br />

a substantial<br />

bid was made,<br />

quickly pushing the price up to<br />

$1.3m.<br />

“It just blew everybody else<br />

away and left two people.”<br />

Innes said the vendors were<br />

“ecstatic” with the result.<br />

“Tears and hugs – all that<br />

sort of stuff.”<br />

The property last changed<br />

hands in 2004 for $405,000,<br />

OneRoof property records<br />

show.<br />

Innes said being zoned for<br />

‘ECSTATIC’: A family home of almost 20 years netted its unexpected owner at least<br />

$100,000 more than they were expecting. PHOTO: NZ HERALD<br />

the “big three” – Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High School, Christchurch<br />

Girls’ High School, and<br />

Burnside High School – was<br />

the major drawcard for the five<br />

local families bidding on it.<br />

“They are already living here,<br />

and their kids are getting to<br />

that age where they need to get<br />

school zones sorted out either<br />

this year or next, so they are<br />

starting now,” he said.<br />

“It’s back to that old chestnut<br />

– location, location, location.<br />

It’s a good location – it’s not<br />

true blue-chip Fendalton,<br />

it’s on the verge. The true<br />

Fendalton is $1.6m and above<br />

sort of thing.”<br />

The sale price of $1.335m was<br />

probably in the slightly lower to<br />

mid-price range for Fendalton,<br />

he added.<br />

“It’s a real sweet spot for<br />

budget.”<br />

The average property value<br />

in Fendalton is $1.496m, down<br />

17.3 per cent year-on-year,<br />

according to OneRoof-Valocity<br />

data.<br />

Innes said there continued<br />

to be strong demand for<br />

family homes in Fendalton in<br />

that price range and a similar<br />

property for sale on the same<br />

street a month ago had also<br />

attracted a lot of interest.<br />

“That agent told me that they<br />

had 100 groups to their open<br />

home, and I thought ‘how am<br />

I going to compete with that’,<br />

and lo and behold we had 120.”<br />

While all the people bidding<br />

on the Bryndwr Rd property<br />

were local families, Innes<br />

said there were still a lot of<br />

out-of-towners turning up to<br />

open homes looking for good<br />

properties.<br />

Last year a luxury home on<br />

Helmores Lane in Fendalton<br />

sold under the hammer for<br />

$6.8m, just missing out on<br />

breaking the city’s long-held<br />

auction sale record by $<strong>25</strong>,000.<br />

However, it did take the record<br />

for the most expensive property<br />

to sell in Christchurch in<br />

2022.<br />

The auction sale record<br />

for Christchurch is held by<br />

a five-bedroom 1930s house<br />

on a huge 4961sq m riverside<br />

section on Glandovey Rd, also<br />

in Fendalton, that sold at a<br />

Bayleys auction for $6.8<strong>25</strong>m<br />

five years ago.<br />

A word from Ilam MP<br />

Sarah<br />

Pallett<br />

We’ve just released Budget <strong>2023</strong>, which<br />

provides more support for today and<br />

outlines the next steps in our plan to<br />

build for tomorrow.<br />

This Budget provides practical cost<br />

of living support across some of the<br />

core expenses facing New Zealanders<br />

– childcare, healthcare, transport and<br />

power bills. It will help to make things<br />

a bit easier for families, students and<br />

older New Zealanders by reducing<br />

or removing some of the costs they<br />

currently face. Millions of Kiwis will<br />

pay a little less as a result.<br />

We’re helping parents stretch their<br />

budgets a little further, by making<br />

childcare cheaper with 20 hours<br />

free ECE for two-year-olds. We’re<br />

helping with health costs by removing<br />

prescription charges for medicines.<br />

We’re permanently cutting the costs<br />

of public transport for young New<br />

Zealanders. We’re also reducing power<br />

bills by making Kiwi homes more<br />

energy efficient.<br />

Budget <strong>2023</strong> also includes a massive<br />

boost to our country’s infrastructure<br />

which has been tested during the recent<br />

flooding and cyclone. That’s why we’ve<br />

allocated significant funds to build<br />

back better with greater resilience, to<br />

protect communities from increasingly<br />

severe and unpredictable weather<br />

events.<br />

It’s a practical Budget that does the<br />

basics well and makes investments<br />

where they are needed most. But we<br />

need to do more than just respond to<br />

the challenges of today, we also need to<br />

build for the future.<br />

That’s why we’re continuing to make<br />

targeted investments in areas that<br />

are critical to grow the economy<br />

and lift productivity. Investing in<br />

infrastructure, skills, science and<br />

technology supports every area of the<br />

economy. It’s how we support people<br />

into work, drive higher wages for Kiwis<br />

and build a stronger economy.<br />

Huge planting season for river corridor<br />

THE <strong>2023</strong> native planting season<br />

is shaping up to be the biggest<br />

yet for the Ōtākaro Avon River<br />

Corridor, with 17 community<br />

days scheduled before the end of<br />

September.<br />

The city council’s red zone rangers<br />

will team up with community<br />

groups and volunteers to plant<br />

tens of thousands of natives at<br />

Brooker Reserve, Chimera Crescent,<br />

Dudley Creek, Richmond<br />

Community Garden, Waikakariki-Horseshoe<br />

Lake, Dallington,<br />

Cedarwood Reserve and Amelia<br />

Rogers Reserve.<br />

City council residential red zone<br />

manager David Little is expecting<br />

this year’s planting season to<br />

surpass last year’s.<br />

“The OARC Regeneration Plan<br />

has a significant emphasis on<br />

ecologically restoring the area,<br />

and the involvement of volunteers<br />

and community organisations is<br />

central to the success of this happening,”<br />

said Little.<br />

“Last year’s planting season saw<br />

volunteers and organisations help<br />

our red zone rangers and parks<br />

teams cover 88 hectares of land<br />

with more than 50,000 native<br />

plants.<br />

“We’re very grateful to everyone<br />

who helped make 2022 a big success<br />

from a planting perspective,<br />

and we’re hoping to keep that<br />

momentum going this year.”<br />

Students involved with the Eco-<br />

Action Nursery Trust held the<br />

first planting day of the season at<br />

Chimera Cres on Sunday, while<br />

the Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park undertook<br />

its first event at Brooker<br />

Reserve.<br />

Little said five maintenance<br />

days will also be held between<br />

September and November.<br />

Mazda CX-5 Activ – point of difference<br />

THERE’S NOTHING more<br />

satisfying than picking up an<br />

evaluation car and immediately<br />

being familiar with the layout<br />

and controls.<br />

That happened recently when<br />

I was scheduled into a Mazda<br />

CX-5 Activ, it has much the<br />

same interior design as the new<br />

Kiddie-family CX-30, along with<br />

the look and feel. Sure there are<br />

a few differences, but the point<br />

I’m making is Mazda builds<br />

similarity into all of its models, a<br />

simple concept that works well.<br />

However, if you are after a<br />

Mazda sport utility vehicle<br />

and want to get away from<br />

that familiarity – something<br />

just a little bit different to the<br />

mainstream – then the CX-5<br />

Activ is definitely the car to<br />

choose. It has trim details<br />

that are quite bold and aren’t<br />

included in the rest of the range.<br />

What’s more, the Activ is, as<br />

its name suggests, a model that<br />

will take you places off the seal.<br />

It has an additional four-wheeldrive<br />

mode that has power<br />

management protocols that will<br />

help enhance grip on slippery<br />

surfaces.<br />

The CX-5 Activ lists at $51,390<br />

and sits mid-way in a six-model<br />

CX-5 line-up, bearing in mind<br />

the series starts at $42,690<br />

for a 2-litre front-drive only<br />

model and ends at $64,690<br />

for a turbocharged 2.5-litre<br />

Takami. The Activ also gets the<br />

2.5-litre engine, but it is sans<br />

turbocharger, the naturally<br />

aspirated unit still pumps out<br />

a healthy 140kW and <strong>25</strong>2Nm,<br />

both realised at traditional<br />

parts of the rev band 4000 and<br />

6000rpm respectively. While<br />

these are healthy outputs, the<br />

performance doesn’t come at<br />

the cost of unnecessary fuel<br />

usage, the engine management<br />

structure keeps the revs down<br />

and it will happily haul in from<br />

almost idle speeds,.<br />

According to Mazda, the<br />

CX-5 models with the naturally<br />

aspirated engine are rated<br />

at 7.4-litres per 100km on a<br />

combined cycle average. My<br />

testing time yielded some<br />

interesting figures. I was<br />

fortunate to have the evaluation<br />

car for an entire week and<br />

during that time it was used a<br />

daily commute which produced<br />

a 9l/100km onboard average. On<br />

the highway that figure dropped<br />

to 7.8l/100km with 6l/100km<br />

showing instantaneously<br />

at 100km/h (engine speed<br />

2000rpm).<br />

Because drive is channelled to<br />

all four corners, the suspension<br />

is a fully independent system<br />

and it has spring and damper<br />

rates firmed only just slightly.<br />

Normally, I wouldn’t tackle<br />

anything off the seal in an<br />

evaluation car unless there was<br />

little choice and for a specific<br />

purpose. However, curiosity<br />

surrounding the Mi-Drive<br />

four-wheel-drive system got the<br />

better of me in the CX-5 Activ.<br />

There’s an open subdivision near<br />

Darfield with some undulating<br />

mounds of dirt that was neither<br />

taxing nor dirty, the CX-5 easing<br />

gently over the uneven terrain<br />

with decent ground clearance.<br />

I’ve always rated Mazda<br />

products highly, and now that<br />

my wife and I are fully fledged<br />

members of the Mazda family<br />

nothing has changed that<br />

opinion. I can categorically say<br />

that anyone who purchases a<br />

CX-5 Activ will be delighted<br />

with the purchase.<br />

PROUDLY LOCAL<br />

The value of a<br />

Property Manager<br />

Professional property management should not be seen as a cost, and instead<br />

be viewed as a value adding service for both landlords and their tenants.<br />

Our property managers can provide you with the peace of mind in knowing<br />

that your investment, and your tenants, are in good hands.<br />

Here are a few more of the things we do...<br />

• Local area knowledge and<br />

expertise<br />

• Professional advertising to best<br />

market your rental<br />

• Zero tolerance for rent arrears<br />

• Regular routine inspections and<br />

follow up reports<br />

• Lease renewals<br />

• Regular rent reviews<br />

• Lodging and transferring of bonds<br />

• Tenancy Tribunal applications and<br />

hearings<br />

• Daily rent checks<br />

• Monthly financial reporting for<br />

landlords<br />

• End of financial year information<br />

• Strong relationships with reliable<br />

contractors<br />

• Advice on Insulation<br />

• Smoke alarm compliance<br />

• Health & Safety knowledge and<br />

best practice steps<br />

• Risk mitigation to protect you,<br />

your tenant, and your property<br />

• Mitigate your risk by meeting<br />

your insurers requirements<br />

• Comprehensive understanding<br />

and knowledge of The Residential<br />

Tenancies Act 1986<br />

• Constant updates and access to<br />

industry changes<br />

• Thorough and professional<br />

communication<br />

• Recommendations to owners<br />

based on practical experience<br />

• Access to sales advice<br />

• Access to mortgage advice<br />

• PLUS MUCH MORE<br />

For any questions regarding property<br />

investment, get in touch with your local<br />

property management specialists Mark<br />

Davison or Joanne Mackley today.<br />
