Allsop has launched its March commercial auction catalogue comprising 116 lots ahead of its third online auction of the year, due to take place on 23rd March.

The catalogue includes a wide range of potential investments across the UK – from bank and pharmacy portfolios let to Santander UK plc and Boots UK Limited, respectively, to retail and industrial investments, which are at the top of property buyers’ wish lists for 2021, according to the property consultancy’s latest auction market survey.

Following the successful sale of the West Orchards Shopping Centre in Coventry last month, preceded by a highly competitive bidding process, Allsop is pleased to present yet another shopping centre investment opportunity that will be available as part of the upcoming auction, among other income-generating assets.

George Walker, partner and auctioneer at Allsop, said: “Following the success of last month’s auction, we’re excited to unveil an even broader range of lots to choose from, catering to buyers across the spectrum. Our latest auction market survey has highlighted the extent of investor appetite for retail and industrial assets, so ensuring there is a good selection of such properties has been front of mind for our team. We look forward to the March auction and expect to see fierce competition for some of the most coveted lots as property remains the go-to asset for those seeking long-term value”.
