A PROPERTY auction featuring lots in Mirfield and Batley has generated takings of more than £7.8m.
The first auction of the year for property agency Eddisons – which took place on two days in Leeds and Manchester – saw 79% of the 123 lots on offer find buyers.
Tony Webber, of Eddisons, said: “This was an excellent performance to start our auction year and continued the positive trend we saw at the end of 2012.
“The sale rooms were packed and investors showed a real appetite for all types of stock, with many lots attracting multiple bids, which helped drive prices up.”
These included vacant ground floor retail premises in Mirfield. The Greenside Road property, which extends approximately 946sq ft sold for £71,000, off a guide of £50,000-plus.
And a vacant two-bedroom terrace house at Bradford Road, Batley, sold for £40,000. The guide price was £30,000.
