Achieving yet another company best, the rise in quality and high value stock obtained within Manchester City Centre, is testament to the hard work that has been dedicated to ensuring Auction House North West help their clients with the best options for selling their properties and portfolios.

Oliver Adams | Director | Residential Property noted:

“The entire auction was a record breaking event for Auction House North West.

Our largest ever auction with 131 Lots raising our largest ever gross sales taking in excess of £6.3million with a sale success rate currently at 78%.

The Lots ranged from parcels of land with a NIL reserve to a famous landmark pub selling prior to auction for a figure in excess of the quoted Guide of £600,000+.

We sold 100% of the lots for one client who entered 16 residential units and sold 3 Manchester City Centre Apartments prior to auction for another client.

Our largest residential sale was a locally famous house in Lancaster – Quarry Mount that saw the hammer fall at £275,000.

No matter what you have to sell, you must consider auction as an exit strategy, it’s fast, secure and a great way to secure the best price from the whole market of buyers.”

The Registration room was still packed long after the Auction had started with would be buyers.

The North West of England has the most active UK Auctions market outside of London. The advent of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ is starting to transform the region and clear signs of an investment surge are now highly visible in the area.

Stuart Cooper | Director | Commercial Property commented:

“Commercially speaking, the auction was a great success, there were many particularly pleasing results but specifically one client entered a small portfolio of commercial units and every one sold, netting the client more than £157,000 above the combined guide prices.

Overall we disposed of over £1.8m of commercial property, with more post auction deals to follow which should see us top the £2m mark.

The shortage of stock on the private treaty market means that more and more buyers are turning to auctions to acquire stock and in turn more and more sellers are willing to offer their properties at auction, not only for speed and convenience but also to achieve great prices, especially as we at AHNW are willing to act on a no sale, no fee (no entry fee) basis, it can also prove to be not only quicker but cheaper than private treaty sale!”

Auction House North West are already receiving entries for their next Auction, taking place on Wednesday 13th December and is to be held at the highly accessible Macron Stadium in Bolton.
