Symonds & Sampson took a big step on 4 November, by taking their property auction back into the sale room, and it was a resounding result with all lots sold.
Ross Wilmington, a partner at the firm, said “We had a lot of discussion about whether our buyers would want to return to the sale room after 18 months selling online and by livestream, but our decision was vindicated when about 100 people attended the sale.
“One lot sold on the telephone but all other lots sold in the room despite very strong bidding from a lady in Australia and notable results were:
Barn conversion near Chard £540,000 – 36% above guide.
Terraced house in Axminster £135,000 – 25% above guide.
4 lots of land in South Somerset £7,600 – 20,000 acre
A derelict bungalow set in 0.26 acres sold for £93,000 – 165% above guide.
