A PROPERTY auction has realised almost £8m.
Eddisons reported that 99 of the 135 lots on offer at its two-day sale in Leeds and Manchester found buyers. That represents 73% of the lots on offer.
Tony Webber, of Eddisons, said: “This was an excellent performance with investors responding positively to the realistic guide prices and in many cases bidding on multiple lots.
“Buyers were out in force, which clearly demonstrated that property remains preferable to more traditional forms of investment.”
The highlights was a fishing lake and woodland extending to nearly six acres in Horbury, Wakefield, which sold for £48,500.
The site off Charles Street was offered at a guide price of just £10,000 plus and had been previously marketed for sale by private treaty at £35,000.
Residential stock included a vacant property in Cowersley.
The two-bedroom back-to-back terrace house on Manchester Road sold for £44,500, in line with the guide price.
