Kate Lay, director at Landwood Property Auctions (pictured above), said: “While lockdown has presented significant challenges for many in the market, we have found the opposite to be true.
“As online property auction experts, we’ve seen record numbers of bidders taking part, driving sales to £7.5m since March.
“Holding our sales on a weekly basis — in contrast to the industry-standard, four-week approach — allows us to actively engage with potential buyers for longer and deliver better returns for clients.”
Landwood has 60 lots listed this month, with a further 20 likely — up from 46 in July 2019.
These include a studio flat in Manchester’s Beetham Tower with a guide price of £115,000, and a three-bed semi in Blackpool with starting bids of £85,000, alongside a pair of former Cumbria County Council care homes.
