Kentish Express Ashford & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

A three-bed­room house in need of im­prove­ment in Gilling­ham was snapped up at auc­tion for more than £20,000 above the guide price.

The prop­erty at Bal­moral Road went un­der the ham­mer with Clive Em­son. The bay-fronted house ben­e­fited from its lo­ca­tion near the High Street and the rail­way sta­tion.

Auc­tion­eer Ben Snelling said: “The en­thu­si­asm among bid­ders for this prop­erty high­lighted the state of the mar­ket.

“There were in­vestors as well as builders and owne­roc­cu­piers who helped raise the price to £165,000.

“Buy-to-let land­lords are fir­ing up the mar­ket that is strong in any event.”
