Canny Yorkshire buyers bid later
HARROGATE agent Feather Smailes Scales achieved a 90 per cent success rate at its latest auction.
Star of the sale was 18 Norfolk Road, Harrogate, HG2 8DA, a four bedroom semi-detached, which sold for £454,000 off a guide price of £390,000.
Partner Richard Smailes, said, “While bidding was brisk on Norfolk Road and other similar properties, several lots sold post the auction.
He added: “Canny Yorkshire folk are known for keeping their hands in their pockets until after the auction; preferring to keep details of any sale private.”
