“Given the opportunity for rental income, we anticipated keen interest from buy-to-let investors, with the final bid coming in a £320,000.”

Rectangular-shaped land at the back of 13 Union Street, Newport, measuring 0.07 acres, went for £51,000 in a bidding war.

Rob said:

“This plot of freehold land, currently used for vehicle parking, revved the attention of bidders, with a final bid which was £39,000 more than the lower end of the guide price. There were 44 bids in total, such was the interest.”

The sale of a commercial unit at 159 High Street, Ryde, currently let at £13,075 per annum, has been postponed.
