Lot 55, two adjoining buildings with development potential in Bow, sold at £1.1m – the highest value lot to go under the hammer
Allsop’s seventh residential auction of the year raised £47.5m on 145 lots, with a success rate of 84%. The day of the auction witnessed 4,296 bids and more than 1,061 bidder registrations.
Richard Adamson, partner and auctioneer at Allsop, said: “We are delighted to have raised £47.5m at our November auction. The market is clearly still very robust, and there seems to be a good level of buyer depth for well-priced assets across all sectors. The noise surrounding the possibility of imminent interest rate rises, which now look to be coming early next year, has clearly not fazed buyers.”
