Latest property auction shows why they might be right for you

Property auctions. What are they all about?

Well, property auctions can be a god way of selling or purchasing a property. It just depends what you have or are looking for and if an auction is suitable for the type of property.

“Property auctions are a good opportunity for buyers and sellers, providing often unusual or keenly sought after properties at a fair price that represent their market value,” said Martin Moore of MMP/NL.

A good example are properties sold at our latest property auction held at Welshpool Livestock Sales at Welshpool in April.

The Chapel in Pantydwr, near Rhayader made £12,000 more than the guide price of £30,000. This was good news for the vendor and for the buyer who obtained a great property for conversion at a very competitive price.

Auctions attract unusual or keenly sought after properties

Such a property might not have realised a price like this through a conventional sale.

Another example was two acres of land near Carno which sold for £82,000 – a whopping £60,000 above the guide price.

“These examples can show how property or land can be realise good prices, providing a good return for the vendors and providing a competitively priced opportunity for buyers,” added Martin.
