Record numbers of buyers crowded into Romans’ sales room at the Green Park Conference Centre in
Record numbers of buyers crowded into Romans’ sales room at the Green Park Conference Centre in Reading on Wednesday, July 29, to witness a bumper catalogue of property and land being sold.
Most interesting was that 100 per cent of the lots sold at, or above, their guide prices — some for much higher prices than their reserves. “This was the busiest July auction that I can remember,” said auctions director Simon Clayton. “Normally at this time of the year many people are away on holiday, but there was standing room only from the very start.”
There were several properties being auctioned that were ideal for investors and those looking for renovation projects. These included a vacant derelict three-bedroom Victorian terrace house on Filey Road in Reading, with a guide price of £150,000 that ended up selling for £202,000.
