Last Call For Lots Ahead Of Auctions

The North’s leading property auctioneer is making a final callout to Manchester residents and businesses looking to sell at auction to put their lots forward by Wednesday, August 8th.

 The Pugh & Co property auction, including residential and commercial lots, will be held at Manchester United Football Club on September 6th.

 Pugh & Co recorded total sales of £9.5m across all auction venues during July. This follows a successful start to the year with £48m generated across all four auction venues – Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Leeds.

 Paul Thompson, director and auctioneer at Pugh & Co, said: “If you’re considering selling a property at auction but are not sure if it’s the right process for you, we urge you to give one of our specialists a call to guide you through your options.

 “There are a number of features which can indicate a property is prime for auction, including those requiring modernisation or renovation, tenanted properties offering investment opportunities, and the more unusual or quirky.

 “Furthermore, auctions benefit from scenarios where fast sales are required, there are issues with the title or tenure, or when sales have fallen through. On the residential side, we are seeing a growing number of more traditional homes selling at auction through probate, as people are seeing this as the most effective route to market their properties to achieve the best price in a short space of time.”

 To register a property for auction, go to or call 0844 2 72244.
