Hunters latest property auction held at York Racecourse on Wednesday 25 October attracted a big crowd and delivered some fantastic results. 

The “Star Sale” of the evening was Lot 13, 7 Staindale Close, a four-bedroom detached house in Rawcliffe in need of a full refurbishment; representing a good project for any willing bidder. The Guide Price was set at £100,000 - £120,000 and the property had attracted over a hundred viewings prior to the auction night. By the time the hammer hit the block after competitive bidding, the property sold for £207,000 -  107% increase of the Guide Price. 13 turned out to be the lucky number of the night.


River View, Lot 11, a two-bedroom bungalow in Linton on Ouse was another property that caught the eye of several buyers. This saw an impressive 29% increase from Guide Price, selling for £155,000.

Lot 3, Beaconsfield Apartment, in Acomb, York, a two bedroomed, ground floor apartment and an excellent investment opportunity, sold over the Guide Price for £110,000 with a current tenant and rental income of £7,800 per annum.
