Clive Emson Auctioneers sold land and property worth over £18 million at its September auction, from a catalogue of 140 lots and a sale rate of 80 per cent.
Managing Director James Emson said, “Our well-attended and successful September sale has belied talk of doom and gloom around the industry. Packed salerooms and excellent results achieved for both vendors and purchasers are testament to the enduring popularity of bricks and mortar.
“Our traditional saleroom auction complements our online auction service which is attracting a whole new generation of tech-savvy property buyers, sellers, investors and developers.”
September sales from the independent firm, which works with 850 high street estate agents across southern England, included:
