Auction Competition Doubles Property Sales Price
Posted On: 16/05/17
A & S Auctions, a partnership between Athertons Chartered Surveyors and Clitheroe Auction Mart enjoyed more success at their latest pubic auction which was held at Silverwords sale room on Thursday evening.
There were five lots on offer – a good mix of properties including 30acres of agricultural land at Mitton, an investement oppurtunity (shop with flat above earning over £10,000 per annum), a barn with land at Read a ground floor apartment at Larmenier Village and a beautiful four bedroom farmhouse in Wilpshire.
Business was brisk for the land with several disappointed parties as it eventually sold for just under £10,000 per acre – nearly double the guide price.
The barn- with potential for various uses but encumbered by electricity sub- station – also promoted great interest and sold for £60,000 – again double the guide price.
The other lots didn’t quite reach the reserve and are now available for sale by Private Treaty at Athertons offices in Whalley and Blackburn.
Entries are now inlisted for the next sale which already has two properties submitted- a terraced house in Darwen needing renovation and a very attractive building plot in Wilpshire.
