PROPERTY agency Eddisons generated sales exceeding £8.2m at its final property auction of 2011.
The agency, which has offices in Huddersfield, said that 106 of the 147 lots which came under the hammer at the two-day sale in Leeds and Manchester were sold.
The successful sales included a vacant hot food takeaway with self-contained two-bedroom accommodation in Lindley. The property on West Street was offered at a guide price of £75,000 plus and sold for £132,000.
Meanwhile, a vacant three bedroom detached dormer bungalow in Waterloo sold for £108,000 off a guide price of £85,000 plus.
Tony Webber of Eddisons said the firm’s eight two-day auctions during 2011 had realised just under £67m, adding: “Despite the financial gloom and doom, buyers were out in force and showed a willingness to spend on a range of stock which they perceived as offering good value for money or which gave a healthy return on investment.”
