Simon Arnes from William H Brown says that last week's auction at Barnham Broom shows that property remains a sound investment - here are some of the properties that sold under the hammer.
The sale got underway with Lot 1: 366 Dereham Road, Norwich, a four-bedroom and three-reception room semi-detached house. Here the guide started at £160,000 and there was strong interest. After very competitive bidding, the gavel fell at £203,000. Other properties which sold on the day included:
Lot 5: Fen View, Ely Road, Hilgay, Downham Market, a semi-detached two-bedroom cottage. This one was sold on the guide price at £105,000.
Lot 6a was a late entry, 4A Vera Road, Norwich, a three-bedroom detached chalet bungalow. Here the guide started at £145,000 and again there was strong interest, with the gavel falling at £175,000.
Lot 10: Belmont, Knapton Road, Trunch, North Walsham, a two-bedroom detached bungalow on a generous plot measuring 1.4acres (STMS). Again, there was good interest in this lot. The guide here started at £250,000 and the gavel fell at £278,500.
Our sale included several parcels of land. One such example was Lot 18: land and garages adjacent to Tithe Road, Chatteris. This is amenity land with garage plots. Here the guide started at £35,000 and there was strong interest, with the gavel falling at £58,000.
Another similar sale was Lot 24: amenity land with a garage adjacent to 53 New Road, Chatteris. Here the guide started at £8,000. With very competitive bidding in the room, the gavel eventually fell at £20,000. Parcels of land such as these attract good interest so we are always pleased to feature such lots.
