While auctions accounted for over 26.0% of all sales in August, the live auction of The Block NZ homes at Point Chevalier has been postponed.
Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc The New Zealand Block.
The series, which began filming in 2020 and was subsequently delayed for a year due to blockages, is now facing a postponement of the live auction to September.
Ray White’s four listings for the homes indicate that the auction has been postponed, although it is yet to be confirmed, with a new date yet to be determined. The auction was set for 7 p.m. on September 5.
The ads read: “As we are currently operating under Level 4, we are unable to access the properties or conduct in-person tours. Please contact us and we will send you the property information pack and as soon as we get back to level 3 we will let you know how to view.
* What Do Block Homes Really Look Like? We visit
* Blocking the NZ Point Chevalier house from season three earns $ 3.18 million
* The Block NZ is back. Will the delay of Covid-19 and the boom in the housing market bring exceptional rewards?
TV3 has yet to confirm the postponement, but promises an update soon on how production has been affected on The New Zealand Block and other shows.
Visiting homes before the lockdown was limited to private tours with listing agents, with no open homes planned. However, the houses were open to the public last weekend.
The series still airs on TV and has two more weeks to air, with balconies, front yards, and front yards yet to show.
The houses are expected to reach the highest amount of any Block property to date.
A former Block townhouse at 26b Newell Street, Point Chevalier sold under hammer on July 20 for $ 3.18 million after the auction was postponed. The sale is seen as a good scorer, but there is local speculation that these large townhouses will be heading for $ 3.5 million and maybe more.
Dylan and Keegan get their second bedroom with a fantastic office, stairwell, hallway and powder room.
Treena Drinnan, director of the Ray White New Zealand agency, says townhouses are four of the most impressive architectural houses. The New Zealand Block has never seen, with “every home has exceptionally designed spaces finished to a high standard and fitted with top of the line appliances”.
“Each of the properties is unique in its own way and has something different to offer – they will appeal to a wide variety of buyers.”
The ads can be viewed here: House 1, Connie and Rach; House 2, Meg and Dan; House 3, Dylan and Keegan; and House 4, Tim and Arty.
Block NZ continues Monday through Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., with the next unveiling on Sunday at 7 p.m. It airs on ThreeNow from 12:30 p.m.
