George Walker, partner and commercial auctioneer at Allsop, said: “As the economic climate continues to change and evolve at a rapid rate, investors are looking for stable and strong income-producing yields and added value opportunities. The yield spread, from 5% to 30% has never been higher and reflects both a willingness to transact at one end and the anticipated competition for income and opportunity at either end of the risk curve.”

Richard Adamson, partner and residential auctioneer at Allsop, said: “Our October catalogue presents a myriad of opportunities from vendors that are committed to selling. We have an additional 40 lots compared to this time last year, and we are offering a wide variety of investment types including regulated tenancies and ground rents together with a number of attractive development opportunities. In the current climate pricing is more important than ever and if the last few months are anything to go by, we anticipate plenty of appetite from buyers and a busy auction day ahead.”
