Eddisons Attracts 154 Lots for Year End Auction


Eddisons has attracted 154 lots for its final two day property auction of the year.

The catalogue includes a range of properties, from tenanted and vacant commercial, industrial and residential investments, to land and ground rents, on behalf of a variety of private and corporate clients.

Tony Webber of Eddisons said: ‘The December auction is traditionally a time for investors to bag themselves a bargain or two’.

‘As the year end approaches vendors are keen to dispose of unwanted stock, which is reflected in the number of lots we have attracted and the guide prices set.’

Highlights include a major chilled distribution unit in Scunthorpe. The self contained property which extends to over 142,000 sq ft is located on the Foxhills Industrial Estate, approximately 2 miles north of Scunthorpe town centre and is guided at £300,000 plus.

Meanwhile, in Moston near Manchester, a tenanted site comprising a hand car wash and MOT station, producing rent of £26,500 is guided at £250,000.
