Britain’s largest independent regional land and property auction firm recorded £14m of sales in its second auction of the year.

Due to pandemic measures, Clive Emson cancelled its five March ballroom sales across southern England. Instead, the firm swapped to a broadcast facility for Kent and Essex then switched halfway through to online sales for West Country, Sussex and Surrey and Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

“We were unsure bidders would have an appetite for purchases online at such short notice, but they proved that property and land sells whatever the economic weather.

“The online element generated £4m in sales, and overall sales of £13.5m, an incredible result. I pay tribute to my colleagues for doing everything they could to keep the virtual show on the road in the most demanding of circumstances.

“We now look ahead to the next series of sales – all online on Wednesday, May 6th.”
