Auction generates more than £8.2m
EDDISONS reported that 112 (69 per cent) of the 162 lots offered at their recent two-day property auction in Leeds and Manchester sold, generating proceeds of more than £8.2m.
Tony Webber of Eddisons says: “Although the market remains price sensitive, there was a definite mood of quiet confidence among buyers who clearly came with cash to invest or external funding in place.”
