Gold Price Trend Forecast Summer 2019

UK Property Auction Sale Values Slump by 44% From a Year Ago

Housing-Market / UK Housing Jun 20, 2008 - 09:50 AM GMT

By: David_Sandeman

Housing-Market Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to the June newsletter that reviews auction activity for May 2008. Continuing market conditions have seen the overall sales rate slip 3 points from last month to 56%. It should not be forgotten however that the auction process did sell over 2,100 lots in May, no mean achievement in this market.


May saw an overall drop of 9.1% in the number of lots offered from 4,201 to 3,818 when compared with May 2007. The quarterly and yearly comparison, which iron out any idiosyncrasies, show a 2.3% and 5.3% increase in the number of lots offered when compared with previous periods, demonstrating continued support by vendors for the auction method of sale. With the falling sale rates, and relatively static numbers of lots offered, it is not surprising that the amount raised has decreased for the monthly (44.6%), quarterly (39.1%) and yearly (22.3%) comparisons.
