Auction House London sells 89% of lots

Some 89% of lots were sold at Auction House London on 12 February 2020, its first sale of 2020.

One notable sale was a severely fire damaged three-bedroom semi in Tooting, which started with a guide of £375,000 and sold for £647,000.

The property in south west London is close to the Tooting Bec underground station and within easy reach of the open green spaces of Tooting Bec Common, and the Tooting Bec Lido.

Andrew Binstock, director and auctioneer at Auction House London, said: “We are sensing a rising energy in the housing market from buyers and it appears to be more than just a Boris bounce.

“The figures speak for themselves – it was our busiest auction room in years, where we sold 89% of all lots listed – the highest percentage in the past year.”

One property sold was the former home of Tottenham Hotspur’s first captain and one of the club’s founders, Bobby Buckle.

The Grade II listed double fronted house in White Hart Lane, Tottenham, currently arranged as two flats, started with a guide of £450,000 before it sold at £580,000.

It is overlooked by the club’s new stadium.
