Clive Emson Auctioneers’ sales topped £23 million at their autumn auction, with a sale rate of 79 per cent across 179 lots for the auction, which took place over five days at five regional venues.
Managing Director James Emson said, “This has been a year full of challenges and uncertainty, but what remains certain is that people trust bricks and mortar.
“Property and land auctions keep growing market share as both vendors and purchasers continue to trust us to get it right.
“The appetite for property very much remains undiminished despite the recent interest rate rise, which I’m sure will have only a modest impact on the market.”
The auction highlights from the independent firm, which works with 850 high street estate agents across southern England, included:
A boarded up beach front building (pictured) in Broadstairs – previously a shelter, toilet block and lift shaft – sold for £350,000, £300,000 above guide.
Five residential properties in Liskeard, Callington and Torpoint sold for Cornwall Council, netting £407,500.
