Festive auction for Clive Emson Auctioneers

Clive Emson Auctioneers has 149 lots listed in its eighth and final auction of the year.

Of the total lots across southern England and South Wales for December, 59 are vacant residential, 37 investment, 26 commercial, 14 development and 13 land.

James Emson, Managing Director, said: “We have a diverse range of lots, to suit most budgets, in the 13 December auction, with live bidding 48 hours beforehand.

“There are also several local authorities which have put land and property on sale through us.

“Looking ahead, with inflation down by more than half at this time last year, and the Bank of England base rate currently stable, there appears to be more certainty in the market outlook then there has been for some time.

“These dynamics provide sellers confidence that there will be a new wave of buyers who may have previously held back out of an abundance of caution.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients, 650-plus joint auctioneers and our dedicated staff for another positive year despite the wider economic challenges.”
