AN auction of homes and business properties fetched more than £3m in Huddersfield.
The organisers said this proved the market was far from waning.
Hundreds of people were at the Galpharm Stadium for the sale.
Forty-two properties were sold for a total of £3.11m.
Auctioneer Raymond Butterworth, from Boultons estate agents, said: "A well-balanced property auction is always a good barometer on the property market.
"In spite of rumours of a downturn in the market, still well over 600 people attended and there was plenty of lively bidding."
The top price was £164,000 for 87 Trinity Street, Huddersfield, and 38 Queen Elizabeth Gardens, Greenhead, in mixed business and housing use.
A building plot in Pike Law Lane, Scapegoat Hill, fetched £152,000.
Auctioneers said the sloping site had superb panoramic views.
A barn ready for conversion to a house in Ashes Lane, Almondbury, went for £119,000.
