Mark Jenkinson and Son’s first online auction, due to the COVID- 19 lockdown, resulted in sales of 86 per cent of lots sold for a total of £1.5million.
The auctioneer’s third auction became an online event to ensure the ‘absolute priority’ of staff, client and public safety during COVID-19.
Adrian Little, Head of the Auction Department, said, “After government lockdown, we needed to carefully advise our clients as to the best way forward which led to April’s online only auction.
“We gave clients the option to postpone, look to sell prior or proceed to the online bidding platform via our website. This resulted in 21 lots being offered, 18 of which sold in a very busy first online event.”
Notable results included an ex council town house in Stannington, guided at £58,000 plus which sold for £91,500; a former pub on Cricket Inn Road close to Sheffield City Centre, that achieved £130,000, and a modern detached house requiring improvement in Bradway (pictured) which sold for £280,000.”
