A PROPERTY auction staged by a West Yorkshire agency has realised proceeds of more than £7m.
Some 88 lots, representing 75% of the total of 118 lots, came under the hammer in the two-day sale staged by Eddisons in Leeds and Manchester.
Among the lots sold, a parcel of grassed land in Ravensthorpe sold for £74,000 off a guide price of £20,000-plus.
The site, which extends to about 512sq metres, fronts onto Huddersfield Road on the main A644 and is about one-and-a-half miles south-west of Dewsbury town centre.
Among other lots, the site of the former Hubberton service reservoir on Long Low Edge Road, near Sowerby Bridge, sold for £12,000.
The lot had been offered on the instructions of Yorkshire Water at a declared nil reserve.
Tony Webber, of Eddisons, said: ‘Cash buyers looking for value for money reacted positively to the realistic guide prices.
“Many lots attracted competitive bidding which contributed to a strong all round performance.”
The next auction takes place on June 16 at Leeds United Football Club, Elland Road, Leeds and on June 21 at the Premier Inn, Trafford Park, Manchester. Both sales start at 12.30pm.
