Clive Emson leap into spring

Tuesday 26 February 2019

Propertymark Protected Clive Emson Land and Property Auctioneers is turning up the heat for its upcoming sale, cataloguing a bumper 134 lots.

The auction, which is the second of eight sales taking place across five days in five venues this year, begins on March 18.

Managing Director James Emson said: “One thing is certain is this uncertain world – that we all need somewhere to live and that bricks and mortar remains a commodity that stands the test of time. Secondly, you can always rest assured that at every Clive Emson auction our professional team of experts will work hard to deliver the best result for vendors and purchasers.

“We ensure that our lots are comprehensively appraised and then realistically guided. Our policy of complete transparency means there are no shocks or surprises – what you see is what you get. Our robust performance so far this year shows we are well set to cope with the demands of an ever-changing market and I look forward to the March auction with great expectation.”

In February, Clive Emson reportedly raised £18 million at a sale rate of 80 per cent from 116 lots catalogued, and next month is showing no signs of slowing, with highlights including:

  • a historic Grade II-listed Old Church Cottage, needing refurbishment, in Kennington;
  • the Queen’s Arms pub at Pitminster, complete with extensive owners’ accommodation, a large car park and skittle alley;
  • a Victorian building arranged as six holiday lets on a 0.24-acre plot in Shanklin on the Isle of Wight;
  • a detached bungalow in need of improvement but near walks and views over the creek in the coastal village of Point Clear Bay; and
  • a contemporary house near the seafront in the sought-after Kemptown area of Brighton, which has been generating up to £65,000 per annum as a holiday let.

Clive Emson has also recently announced it will continue to innovate by launching a new series of fixed date online auctions commencing on Thursday March 28, which will be complementary to the traditional ballroom auction which remains unchanged. The streamlined fixed date online auction will run in real time on the Clive Emson website and adds another aspect to the already popular online auction service provided.

All lots for the upcoming auction can be found in the latest catalogue which is out now and available to view online.
