Record amount achieved for happy sellers at Romans Auction

Author: Simon Clayton

New Bath Road, TwyfordHundreds of buyers crowded into Romans’ sale room at the Green Park Conference Centre in Reading to witness a bumper catalogue of unique lots being sold.

The packed September sale room saw 100% of the lots sell at or above their guide prices, some for significantly higher prices than their reserves, much to the delight of the sellers.

The next property auction is just around the corner on 28th October, and Simon Clayton, Romans’ Auctions Director, is expecting another exciting catalogue of properties: “Our September auction was the busiest so far this year, and with two more planned before the end of 2015 we’re confident this could be one of the most popular years we’ve experienced for selling property via auction.”

One of the star lots of the day was a three bedroom detached house oozing character and a lot of charm on New Bath Road on the outskirts of Twyford, which sold for a staggering £818,000, from a guide price of £600,000.

Several terraced properties successfully sold including a vacant, period terrace house on Radstock Road in Reading which offers fantastic potential for development and sold for £72,000 above its guide price of £175,000. And a rarely available cottage close to the centre of Sunningdale on London Road eventually sold for £369,000 after a fierce bidding war.

Old Church Lane, Farnham“We’ve achieved some very encouraging prices in our recent auctions” adds Simon, “and indicators show that house prices may rise as much as 10% in the next 12 months, which must provide confidence for anyone thinking of buying property for investment.

“We are now inviting entries for our next auction on 28th October, which provides sellers adequate time to complete their sales before the clocks go back for winter. We have already received instructions on a number of very interesting lots.”

One property of note in Romans’ October auction is a four bedroom detached house set in secluded grounds of over half an acre in the highly sought-after location of Old Church Lane in Farnham. With a guide price of £620,000, the property has the benefit of full planning permission for the construction of a replacement four bedroom home.

If you’re looking for a project a two bedroom terraced house on St. Leonards Road in Windsor is being auctioned with a guide price of £400,000. “This property does require some work and modernisation, but being located close to the town centre it would make an ideal investment as it’s sure to attract interest from a lot of tenants and provide fantastic capital growth” says Simon. It benefits from an off-road parking space and is within walking distance of Windsor & Eton Central train station.

Ashridge Way, Sunbury-on-ThamesAn attractive three bedroom semi-detached house in Sunbury-on-Thames is also going under the hammer. Located in a popular residential area on Ashridge Way, less than five miles from Heathrow Airport, this property has great potential to be transformed into a lovely family home, and with a guide price of just £120,000 it is sure to be snapped up.

Other lots include a one bedroom apartment on Aldershot High Street with a guide price of £105,000, and a commercial property on Victoria Road also in Aldershot with a two bedroom flat above and a guide price of £170,000.
