Lots on offer at Romans upcoming property auction

Romans first property auction of 2017 is set to be an interesting one with nearly a dozen lots on offer at Green Park Conference Centre, Reading.

The auction, taking place on 22nd February at 1:30pm, features an exciting selection of residential properties from across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and West Sussex.

“Our auctions always attract a fantastic array of properties, this particular one includes several semi-detached houses; as well as some land with planning permission” comments Simon Clayton, Romans’ Auctions Director. “I’m expecting interest from both investors and owner occupiers, as buying at auction is a fantastic way to quickly get on the property ladder.”

The first auction of the year offers a unique opportunity to acquire a piece of land in a popular semi-rural location in Chalfont St. Peter with permission for a detached bungalow. It could be a great investment with a guide price of £770,000.

If you are looking specifically for a letting investment you might be interested in a period two bedroom terrace house close to Reading town centre with a guide price of £200,000.

There are several semi-detached homes being auctioned, and at very different stages of repair, the property in Oakwood Road, Bracknell (image below) requires cosmetic refurbishment, with a guide price of £250,000. The period house located close to Taplow train station requires minor improvement and remedial work to the rear extension with a guide price of £290,000, and the third semi-detached is of non-standard construction requiring modernisation with a guide price of £225,000 in Blackwater.

Other interesting lots include a basement maisonette in Worthing which is close to the seafront with a guide price of just £100,000.

If you are looking for a property to make your mark on then the four bedroom end of terrace house in Caversham, requiring modernisation and refurbishment, has a guide price of £390,000. This will be a great investment property as it is in a popular residential area within walking distance of Reading main line station which is soon to be part of Crossrail.
