Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

PUGH & Co’s first auc­tions of the year were a big success.

The res­i­den­tial arm of the busi­ness, The Auc­tion Peo­ple, had 45 lots on of­fer at Leeds United Foot­ball Club, where the stand-out star was the former garage premises on Vic­to­ria Road, Rich­mond, which sold for £140,000, more than twice its guide price.

Paul Thompson, di­rec­tor and auc­tion­eer at Pugh & Co says: “Our Leeds auc­tion raised a huge level of in­ter­est with some ex­tremely com­pet­i­tive bid­ding. You can of­ten sense which are go­ing to be the big lots of in­ter­est and it is great to see the ex­cite­ment in the room. From the rostrum it was great to see a va­ri­ety of bid­ders from first-time buy­ers to sea­soned in­vestors.”
