Auction Property Market Update November 2010

Skip to Headline Statistics or Useful Resources

October's activity remained high for auctions as sales in the general market slowed significantly, causing people and companies such as lenders who had to sell properties, to sell via auction. October lots offered was up 17% versus last year (albeit static over a 12 month period). The number of buyers however was still low versus previous busier activity with only 62% sold.

The good news for residential auction owners and their sellers was for the first time in some months, although the number of lots sold was down, the amount of money raised was up versus October in the previous year. This suggests if the right properties are sold at the right price, there are cash rich investors out there that can afford to snap them up.

Thinking of investing? Then head down to your local property auction house!
