ED­DIS­ONS re­port that 106 (72 per cent) of the 147 lots of­fered at their re­cent two-day prop­erty auc­tion in Leeds and Manch­ester sold, gen­er­at­ing pro­ceeds of over £8.2m.

Tony Web­ber of Ed­dis­ons says: “This was a very strong per­for­mance to end the year in which our eight two-day auc­tions have gen­er­ated to­tal pro­ceeds of just un­der £67m.

“De­spite the fi­nan­cial gloom and doom buy­ers were out in force and showed a will­ing­ness to spend on a range of stock which they per­ceived as of­fer­ing good value for money or which gave a healthy re­turn on in­vest­ment.”

Among the high­lights was a Grade II listed 18th cen­tury house in Calver­ley near Leeds which sold for £158,000.
