Look at this.

These photographs, plus the final sale figure of $722k, are Auckland's housing woes embodied. You need no further information.
OK, we'll give you some. Set on a 723 m2 section, this auction winner clearly had a max price of $1000 a square metre - and it's not even in central Auckland. Located close by to the Southwestern Motorway, this property was auctioned in Three Kings, a suburb 8.3km from the CBD.
Would you buy this for $722k?
