Auction House East Anglia raised over £10m from its sixth auction of the year on Wednesday, October 21.

As a company, we offered 71 lots with 58 finding buyers, giving an 82pc success rate. The auction had 267 registered bidders with 182 internet bidders, 66 telephone bidders and 19 proxy bidders. On the day 1,574 people watched the auction live on the Auction House website.

This was our most successful auction ever and I believe the first time a local auction has raised over £10m in sales.

Our highly successful live stream auctions behind closed doors with remote bidding via internet, telephone and proxy are the new norm. We are getting huge engagement from buyers and sellers and achieved some impressive results. As normal 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.
