House Auction Prices

A distinct lack of activity in August!

August's property market auction shows slightly suprising results for August. Although it's a typically quiet month (even property buyers go on holiday!) having seen quite a few lots come through in September, the number for August shows a disctinctive lack of activity at every level. 

Month on month, money raised at auction was only £21mn versus £48mn the year before. Only 58% of lots offered were sold in August, this is exacerbated by a fall in the number of lots 42% from 600 properties to 300, of which only 200 were sold in August 2010 versus 400 in August 2009.
