We had a fantastic April auction filled with unique properties, camera crews and great results!
Featuring 60 cracking residential and commercial properties from across the North West, we anticipated a buzz amongst bidders at our spring sale.
Our line-up of lots attracted buyers and developers from across the region – including a few special guests from the BBC.
We had the camera crew from BBC1’s ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ at our April auction. They caught all the action live on camera for their new series of the show.
We love a bit of homes under the hammer, especially when we get to be on the show! 📸

We have a few fantastic properties for sale post-auction, so make sure you take a look. You could bag yourself a bargain!
Let’s take a second to look at a few residential and commercial properties that stole the limelight at our spring sale.
Before we shine a light on our April auction superstars, we asked our new auction sales manager, Aaron Wade, what he thought of Wednesday’s property sale.
“We had another busy day at Greater Manchester’s largest auction, with some fantastic properties snapped up. One of our star lots sold for a price that was 20% above the original guide which was a great result!”
“We still have a handful of amazing properties available, so if you’re looking to bag a bargain check out our April auction results.”
Let’s start at the beginning with lot 1, a 2-bedroom semi-detached house in Levenshulme. Initially, our clients had tried to sell their home with an online estate agent.
After months on the market and a terrible experience, they decided to try a different method of selling their home. This is where their story with Edward Mellor auction starts.
After a series of conversations with our clients, we decided to market the property with at a guide price of £115,000.
Soon after we’d made the property available we had a really high level of interest from buyers. 25 people viewed the property and immediately after that, we received two offers! As interest was sky-high we advised our client to sell their property in the room.
We opened our April auction with this property and after some very competitive bidding, the hammer finally fell on a sale price of £145,000!
It’s safe to say our vendors were over the moon with the service they’d received from the team.
The next property we’d like to talk about is lot number two, a commercial premises in Heaton Chapel. The property was absolutely knackered and was being sold on behalf of a regional pharmacy.
Although it was in pretty poor condition, it had a fantastic location opposite the busy A6 and bags of potential so we knew this was one to watch.
We set a guide price of £120,000 and it sold for £133,000 under the gavel.
Last but certainly not least, we’d like to talk about lot 12. This property in Burnage had been on the market with a local agent for months with little interest.
Our clients wanted to raise some equity to purchase another property for their son, however, their dreams of doing this stood still whilst their home was on the open market.
The vendors decided to try a different method of selling their home, so came to us for help. We decided to market their property at a guide price of £162,000 which was well received from buyers.
After 17 viewings, the property achieved a price of £180,000! The contracts were exchanged immediately and our clients will have their money in 28 days, so they can fulfill their dreams of seeing their son in his own home.
