Simon Bailey, Director and Auctioneer at Eddisons said: ‘The catalogue provides a choice of options for buyers seeking either income streams or asset management opportunities.
‘I fully expect the encouraging signs of growth in the auction market at the end of last year to continue in 2013 and look forward to a busy sale to start our auction year.’
Among the lots is a commercial investment property in Luton town centre, part let to bookmakers BetFred, generating £62,500 per annum. The guide price is £900,000 plus.
