The company offered 55 lots, with 41 finding buyers giving a 75pc success rate. The auction had 128 registered bidders with 93 internet bidders and 35 telephone bidders. On the day nearly a thousand people watched the auction live on the website.

Robert Hurst, chartered surveyor and auction manager said: “Our highly successful livestream auctions behind closed doors, with remote bidding via internet, telephone and proxy continue to impress. We achieved some impressive results and those sellers who were sensible in setting realistic expectations were rewarded. The success of our auction is in no small part due to the global reach of our live stream auctions. The tools we have at our disposal to reach sellers and bidders is far and wide with bidders throughout the country and abroad.

“The hard work and commitment of the Auction House staff throughout the ongoing pandemic has paid off with the success that has been achieved.”

The highest price paid for a lot was on Marine Parade in Gorleston which sold for £595,000. The property is a four-bedroom detached house over looking the sea front with fine views and sold to a telephone bidder.
