The record-breaking auction house Bond Wolfe Auctions has set another new record with its latest live-streamed auction in July after recording its highest number of lot sales (222) in a day.
The auctioneer sold 222 of the 231 lots offered, making for an impressive success rate of 97%.
First under the hammer were a series of commercial ground rents sold on behalf of Birmingham City Council, which generated between £110,000 to £200,000.
One lot that proved to be extremely popular was the former Lickhill Manor, near Stourport-on-Severn, Worcestershire. Pictured above, the Grade II listed Georgian country house received tremendous interest in the run-up to the auction, resulting in several offers.
Commenting on the site’s popularity, Ian Tudor, Joint Managing Director for Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This property clearly caught the attention of a number of eager buyers and eventually sold before the auction for a figure considerably in excess of the £500,000 guide price*. The eventual buyer is considering residential conversion and use of the property.”
Bond Wolfe’s July auction saw the company receive 633,651 website page views, as well as 251,516 video tours watched, and 51,517 legal documents downloaded.
Mr Tudor said: “The appetite for commercial property at Bond Wolfe’s livestreamed auctions continues to grow with interest not just from our traditional Midlands heartland, but from across the UK and foreign bidders too.”
Bond Wolfe’s next auction is on Thursday, 9th September.
