In our August auction the star performer on the day was "The Firs" in the historic village of Hambledon. This delightful detached cottage was offered as the last lot in the sale and even though it had attracted over 60 viewings in the pre-auction marketing period, the level of interest had exceeded all expectations:
The audience of over 100 people sat tight in eager anticipation to await the outcome. With everyone reluctant to start, the bidding opened just below the guide price of £395,000 and with hands being raised from all corners of the room, the hammer finally fell at £490,500.
As one would expect the clients were very satisfied with the result and glad that they decided to sell by auction as it took the stress out of the whole situation.
