Symonds & Sampson has held many very successful auctions in the past, but the livestream sale on 21st May set new highs
Auctioneer Mark Lewis said ‘It was a perfect storm of having the right lots at the right time, and everybody now seems to be well versed with the livestream system.
‘We were delighted to welcome Graham Barton of 'Homes under the Hammer' fame to the auction. He joins the firm bringing great experience and will be running our Devon and Cornwall auctions in the future.
‘At its peak today, over 600 people were viewing the livestream, with huge interest in the variety of lots and seeing over 4,500 legal documents downloaded prior to the sale.'
Notable results include:
The most excitement however, was for the final lot of the day, 4.68 acres at Horton near Wimborne (main picture). Over 250 people showed interest in the legal pack, 70 people registered to bid at the auction, and following frenetic bidding the hammer fell at £68,000 p/acre - a record 255% above guide.
