Memorial Hall to host Palmer Snell Westcountry Property Auctions first sale of 2012

So 2012 has begun in earnest and the property market seems to have some fresh vitality as home owners have perhaps set New Year resolutions to sell their homes, buy new ones and move forward with a positive approach to 2012

So 2012 has begun in earnest and the property market seems to have some fresh vitality as home owners have perhaps set New Year resolutions to sell their homes, buy new ones and move forward with a positive approach to 2012. Palmer Snell in association with Westcountry Property Auctions begin the first of their 5 series of three day auctions at the Legacy Hotel with 40 lots to suit all tastes and sizes of wallet.


Despite the on going economic debt legacy and political rows about austerity there is no doubt that buyers are keen to acquire property at sensible prices. Andrew Jarrold, auctioneer for Westcountry Property Auctions, says property continues to offer a safe haven for investors be they owner occupiers, developers, builders or investors. The fundamentals that create property value are firmly back on purchasers radar and beginning to drive realism back into prices.


The Sherborne sale will be Westcountrys third outing in the region in association with Palmer Snell and features a catalogue of interesting and varied properties including an unexpectedly available development opportunity at Wickham Road in Bournemouth guided at 100,000 plus and in Langport a water damaged bungalow in need of complete refurbishment. Other lots of real interest include Fernleigh at Gillingham, a detached period cottage for complete refurbishment guided at a mouth watering 110,000 plus and for sea lovers a Southbourne property with spectacular sea views, needing modernisation and guided at 250,000 plus.


The sale starts at 1pm at the Digby Hall in Sherborne. For further information contact Palmer Snell in Sherborne on 01935 814531 or visit Westcountry Property Auctions at www.westcountrypropertyauctions.co.uk
