It will feature a string of bargain-priced fixer-uppers suitable for buyers ranging from families looking for their first step on the property ladder to experienced investors aiming to expand their property portfolios.


For instance, a three bedroomed end-terrace house at 38 Oxford Street, Church Gresley, Swadlincote, in Derbyshire, has a guide price* of just £39,000-£44,000.


With gardens front and rear, gas central heating and double glazing, the house has a reception room, dining kitchen and shower room with WC downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. It is in need of modernisation throughout, however, hence the low guide price.


Meanwhile, over in Nottingham, a two bedroom end-terrace house at 86 Cranwell Road (pictured) is listed at £55,000+ with paved gardens front and back, a driveway and UPVC double glazing. Also in need of modernisation, it has a reception room and kitchen downstairs with the bedrooms and bathroom with WC upstairs.


Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “These two properties are great examples of the broad range of properties across the East Midlands coming up for sale at our auction event on July 21.


“These lower priced homes often are in need to improvements and modernisations but would be ideal for those with DIY skills.”


A two bedroomed detached house at 11 Cross London Street, New Whittington, Chesterfield in Derbyshire, is listed at just £30,000+.


Again, in need of modernisation, it has gardens to the rear and double glazing, two reception rooms, a kitchen and cellar access downstairs, with two bedrooms and the bathroom with WC upstairs.


The three bedroomed semi-detached house at 1 Spencer Drive, Alfreton in Derbyshire, has a guide price of £49,000+ - less than half current market values. It has gardens front and rear, with outbuildings and double glazing. Downstairs is a hall, two reception rooms and a kitchen, with the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.


The two bedroomed semi-detached house at Lea Croft, Little Lane, Shirebrook, Nottinghamshire, is in need of complete renovation, hence the low guide price of £39,000-£44,000. There is a driveway and foregarden to the front, a garage and a very overgrown garden at the rear. Inside it has two reception rooms, an understairs cupboard and kitchenette, with two bedrooms and the bathroom with WC upstairs.


A guide price of £39,000+ has been set for the two bedroomed mid-terraced house at 26 Mill Road, Heanor, Derbyshire. Again, in need of thorough renovation it has a long garden to the rear, two reception rooms and a kitchen downstairs and two bedrooms and the bathroom with WC on the first floor. Double glazing is installed.


The July auction will be Bond Wolfe’s first return to the auction room in two-and-a-half years.


Mr Bassi added: “In our first return to the auction room in two-and-a-half years, we continue to offer a great range of properties to suit all needs.”


The East Midlands lots are among 207 properties appearing in Bond Wolfe’s auction that starts at 9.30am on 21 July in a return to the Holte Suite at Villa Park for the first time in two-and-a-half years.


For those not able to attend in person, the auction will continue to be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet.
