I go Chop your dollar, Ctd

Terry Serepisos continues to chop dollars:

Two Roseneath homes and a Queenstown holiday home that were owned by bankrupted businessman Terry Serepisos have been sold in mortgagee auctions.

One of his Wellington homes, a 1950s house at 21 Robieson St sold for $660,000, well over its $590,000 rating value. The other, a “character bungalow” at 23 Robieson St went for $705,000 – well under its $960,000 rating value.

His three bedroom, two bathroom Queenstown holiday home was sold to a Southland man for $1.01 million – $440,000 less than its rating value.

Harcourts Wellington sales manager Antonia Brown said the Robieson St sales were originally scheduled to be held a week earlier but were put off at the request of the ASB Bank just 10 minutes before the sale was due to start. The 50 would- be buyers came back on Wednesday and there was keen bidding.

Both were 120 square metre homes and “a bit tired”. While they did not have drive-on access, they had great views of the harbour and were in a street where homes go for more than $1m.

The ANZ Bank had instructed the sale of two of Mr Serepisos’ other Roseneath homes, she said.

One of them, a 156 square metre home at 20 Thane Rd with a rating value of $950,000, is to be auctioned on November 30. The house had “weathertightness issues” and “serious work needed to be done”.

The other was a 260sqm multi- level home at 15 Robieson St which had a rating value of $1,025,000.

It is looking increasingly like the assets supporting his multitude of loans aren’t going to cover much.

Still waiting for that writ Terry.
