There’s no auction business like auction snow business

During a week where much of the UK became engulfed in snow, we received several comments from prospective bidders that they were pleased they could sit in the comfort of their own home and bid. That’s the magic of the internet and being online – anywhere, any place!

The first auction of the year, saw 104 lots e-catalogued with a sales rate of almost 80% and over £16 million raised for our clients.

The e-catalogue showed a diverse array of lots ranging from vacant premises to investments, garages to ground rents and land – equally the sold prices were diverse as well, with £1.020 million being achieved for Millham in Mountsfield, East Sussex (a former country house) to £5,000 being achieved for a freehold parcel of land in County Durham, with scores of other lots selling at prices in between. A full list of the lots and their sold prices can be found by clicking here.
