On a crisp and sunny morning, with our usual busy room, the sale got underway. Below is a selection of some of the properties sold yesterday. The full results are displayed in the EDP.Lot 1, Nelson Road Central, Great Yarmouth. A three bedroom house where the guide started at £50,000. There was strong interest in this property with several buyers in the room. The gavel eventually fell at £58,000.

Lot 4, Melrose, Newton Road, Castle Acre. A semi-detached brick and flint cottage with the guide starting at £180,000. The gavel fell here at £202,000.

Lot 5, 15 Fairway Lakes Village, Caldecott Hall. A detached two bedroom, eco-friendly, Scandinavian luxury timber house which sold on the guide at £125,000.

Lot 7, Selwyn Farm, 71 South Brink, Wisbech. A semi-detached three bedroom cottage. The guide here started at £60,000 with the gavel falling at £70,000.

We had several small parcels of land which attracted strong interest. One of the most interesting was Lot 27, Land at Claypit Lane, Fakenham. A parcel of amenity land of 0.098 acres. With the guide starting at £5,000 there were several bidders with the gavel eventually falling at £21,500. There’s always interest in these types of lots and this was a good example of what can be achieved in the room.

Lot 22, 4, 4A & 4B Globe Lane, Littleport. A mid-terrace commercial investment opportunity. The guide here started at £115,000. Again, after strong interest the gavel fell eventually at £142,000.

Lot 39, 38 Langmere Road, Watton. A two bedroom detached bungalow requiring some further modernisation and updating. The guide here started at £120,000. Again there was good interest with lots of competition in the room. The gavel eventually fell at £153,000.

Our last lot of the day was lot 40, 30 Milner Road, Wisbech. A three bedroom semi-detached house requiring renovation throughout. The guide started at £60,000 and with very competitive bidding, the gavel eventually fell at £82,000.

The above is just a selection of some of the properties sold, demonstrating once again the benefits of selling by auction.
