Hunters Auctions had an excellent night on 31st May at York Racecourse selling 67% of lots offered.

The most exciting property of the night was a 400 year old house in Hawksworth, Leeds. The property is characterful but requires some work. A number of bidders were interested with the final sale price achieved settling on £455,000. An exchange of legally binding contracts took place on the drop of the gavel so the current owner now only needs to wait a few weeks for completion to take place.

Other lots offered on the night were two student let properties off the popular Bishopthorpe Road area of York. The property with an income of £15,000 achieved £210,000. The property with an income of £21,000 was offered with a guide price of £200,000 - £220,000 and sold successfully at a price of £232,000.

A three bedroomed bungalow in the popular Stockton Lane area of York was offered for sale on the night. The owner’s family had been given the responsibility of selling the property for the best possible price. The gavel dropped with a secure sale at £174,500.

The star sale of the night however was the plot of land at Barkston Ash. This plot has outline planning permission for a detached bungalow. The bidding went around the room a few times, including a telephone bidder. The bidding started and quickly rose above the guide price of £35,000 - £40,000. The final sale price reached an impressive £75,000.
