A beautiful 3 bed home in L36, that is currently tenanted, produces a rental income of £9,100 a year, it had a guide price of £145,000 and sold for £186,500 which was  £41,500 over the guide.

Cathy Holt, Associate Director of Sutton Kersh Auctions commented, ‘Today was a huge success with us selling 111 properties and also this is our 3rd auction of the year and  like the February and April ones we have managed to once again sell over £10 million pounds worth of property thorough our auction. We also saw our auction follow suit with the UK market trends of there being a huge demand for residential properties. We have also seen that homes located on or close to the UK Coastlines are selling for above their guide prices as many investors are looking to let them out or to keep as second homes making full use of the extended stamp duty holiday’.

Properties located on the South Coast saw some strong bidding activity with the majority in this and the surrounding areas being sold prior to the actual online auction, like Lot 138 in Torquay sold for £143,000 which was £43,000 over the guide price despite it needing complete refurbishment.
