Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

AUC­TION House was the only UK prop­erty auc­tion­eer to sell more than the mile­stone fig­ure of 2,500 lots in 2013.

This con­firms that the com­pany now ac­counts for 10 per cent of all prop­erty auc­tion sales in the coun­try.

In­de­pen­dent fig­ures from the Es­sen­tial In­for­ma­tion Group show that the brand suc­cess­fully sold 2,575 lots in 165 auc­tions dur­ing the year, with an av­er­age suc­cess rate of 80 per cent.

Auc­tion House West York­shire di­rec­tor David Pank said: “We’re see­ing a no­tice­able in­crease in the num­ber of fam­ily homes be­ing sold at auc­tion to pri­vate buy­ers. In other words, peo­ple who are buy­ing them to live in, in­stead of sell­ing them on.”
