Woodhead launch auction service

Woodhead Oswestry Sales and Lettings are pleased to announce they will be offering a traditional method property auction service beginning this summer.

The agent will be partnering with All Wales Auction – an award-winning auctioneering house supported by over 230 staff and 30 offices across Wales and borders. Senior auctioneer and partner Melfyn Williams is well known and highly experienced in his field and boasts a rate of selling four out of every five properties entered.

The auction house has previously been the recipient of the Sunday Times Best UK Auctioneers titles in 2011, 2013 and 2014.

Kate Howell, owner of Woodhead on Leg Street in Oswestry, said: “I’ve been looking for a way to offer auctions to our clients and this seemed like the perfect fit. Not only is Melfyn a top auctioneer and friend, he’s part of the Guild of Property Professionals as we are, so I know the standards of his work will be as high as ours and it’s a great match for us.”

Woodhead will be auctioning their first property – a four-bedroom house for renovation on Oakhurst Road in Oswestry on 10 August. The property, which has a guide price of £160,000 is likely to get a lot of interest from families looking for a project to investors and developers.

“Auctions are definitely something we would like to grow,” said Kate, “some properties are just suited to this method of sale and it’s important I can offer my clients all of the options they might need to sell their property.”

The estate agent has just agreed another three, exclusive exhibition dates this year to present properties for sale in the prestigious Park Lane office in London, which they have access to as part of their membership with The Guild. The dates will be 7 September, 6 October and 11 November.
