It’s true – auctions speak louder than words!

Have your say

Four flats in a converted Victorian house at Southsea recently went under the auctioneer’s hammer for £275,000.

The semi-detached property at 54 Campbell Road was among 24 lots being sold by regional land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.

Rob Marchant, auctioneer, said: ‘There was keen interest in the freehold from the buy-to-let market.’

Elsewhere, a new owner has a chance to breathe new life into a property on a five-acre plot at Ingoldfield Lane, Soberton, in the Meon Valley.

Two-bedroom Flint Wall Cottage, chalked for ‘significant improvement and modernisation’ and located in a semi-rural area, was sold for an undisclosed amount after auction, with a freehold guide price of £400,000-£430,000.

A three-bedroom terrace at 34 Northway, Bridgemary, Gosport, fetched £146,000, which was £46,000 above the freehold guide price.

Starting at 11am, the next auction takes place at the same venue, the Ageas Bowl on Thursday, May 7.

There are 168 lots in total, in five regional auctions being held by Clive Emson over one week across southern England.

One of the four largest land and property auction companies in the UK, the firm’s auctioneers are regulars on BBC One’s Homes Under The Hammer. Last year Clive Emson achieved sales of more than £125m.
