Property auctioneer Auction House, which has a branch in Northampton, has just gone past the milestone of 3,000 lots sold in the year, reaching the landmark figure more than a week earlier than the company did last year.

Auction House - recently named ‘Residential Auction House of the Year’ by The Negotiator magazine - had earlier reported cumulative sales of 2,885 lots through to the end of November at a success rate of 76.5%, and raising over £375 million pounds (£376,938,000).

Auctioneer Richard Greener said: “Healthy sales in November have helped us to a position that is up over 8% on last year. At a time when EIG is reporting a downturn in total auction sales, the Auction House performance is a stand out result which is some 15% ahead of the sector. Yet again, our 40 regional auction rooms are punching well above their weight.”
