February Auction Round-Up

We started off the new decade with another successful round of auctions across southern England. Our five auctions over the period 10-14 February achieved more than £20 million in sales, with over 80% per cent of the 170 lots sold!    

Going, going, gone!

Holly Cottage near Folkestone, Kent, mentioned in last month’s blog post sold for £510,000 – £10,000 more than the top end of its guide price. The Grade II listed urinals in Margate sold for £11,000, however, the wonderful seafront property in Deal did not find a seller this time around and is still available at £650,000. If you are interested in this property please do not hesitate to contact our Kent office on 01622 608400 or by emailing kent@cliveemson.co.uk – it’s well worth checking out!   

Commercial or residential? The choice is yours!

Last month we also wrote about a brand new office building in Ashford, Kent. This 3-storey commercial building has great transport links and may be suitable for subdivision into flats. The property sold at auction for £475,000 – a fantastic buy with great potential if you ask us!
