Essential Auction News

David Sandeman, Managing Director

Welcome to the August newsletter that looks back at auction activity in July and preceding periods. July is traditionally one of the busiest months in the auction calendar, and last month was no exception with over 4,200 lots offered across 194 auctions - a 7.8% gain on July 2013.

The number of lots sold at auction increased by 4.4% to 3.062 lots, generating total revenues of £539.2M. This was yet another substantial gain on last year (15.4%), whilst similar rises are evident in the rolling quarterly and yearly figures.

I do hope you are now enjoying the summer break. As ever I would welcome any feedback you may have regarding the newsletter or the wider market in general.

Kind regards

David Sandeman

National Auction Analysis

Residential lots offered and sold both increased in July, up by 9.1% and 5.7% respectively, and after several months of double-digit rises the total amount raised shows a more moderate gain this month of 5.1%, to £341.8M.

Conversely, the commercial market enjoyed a huge leap in revenues - up 38.8% to £197.3M, yet actual sales fell by 0.5% in July to 595 lots.
