Peter Hornor, chartered surveyor and auctioneer at Brown & Co, talks about their forthcoming auction.
Our summer auction will soon be upon us with five weeks to go until the sale at the beginning of July.
We launched the auction entries onto the market recently and are delighted at the range of properties we have on offer, covering Norwich and Norfolk and including houses and cottages in need of renovation together with investment opportunities.
We are often asked what makes for a good auction.
The answer has to be, a wide variety of different lots with the variety making for an interesting sale. As always, we have spent a lot of time inspecting properties throughout the region and we hope that what we have on offer will be of interest to buyers and that the guide prices will create the sort of competition that can enable us to maximise results for our clients.
Our track record has been good over recent years and the pressure is on because we sold 17 out of 20 lots back in March!
It is always difficult to single out lots but property in Cozens Hardy Road and Alford Grove in Sprowston should certainly be of interest to buyers, whilst a terraced house in Wingfield Road to the north of the city should be of interest to owner occupies and investors alike. A fine Listed period property in Mount Pleasant in one of the prime residential areas of the city and a property in Smithfield Road, off Hall Road that has not come to the market for some 56 years will certainly be of great interest.
Over in East Norfolk we have a semi-detached house in Scottow and a cottage in Neatishead, as well as bungalows to the north of Norwich and in North West Norfolk, all of which are being offered with realistic guides.
Otherwise, as highlighted recently, The Thoroughfare in Harleston will be of interest to buyers along with investment opportunities on Dereham Road in Norwich, Church Street in Dereham, two car parks in Boston and flats in Norwich.
The beauty of the auction approach is that it enables us to find out what the market will dictate on the day in a transparent way. I have no doubt that the auction approach is decisive and as always, we are deeply grateful to vendors who are prepared to give us the opportunity to look after their property interests.
We are available to deal with any queries as viewings commence and if any buyers of people interested in the process have any legal queries, or queries about guide prices, easements, rights of way or any other matter relating to property, please let us know.
