Victor Ktori, head of office at Savills Nottingham, comments: “Once again the September auction offers a diverse range of properties across a wide geographical spread. We are continuing to see an influx of licensed leisure lots, including a rare opportunity to acquire a bar/restaurant on St James’s Street in the heart of Nottingham city centre. These lots offer both significant investment and development opportunities for those looking to secure a quick and efficient purchase via the auction process.”
Bob Crocker, head of residential auctions at Savills Nottingham, adds: “Following another reduction in Bank of England base rates recently, it is anticipated that residential property will continue to be a strong choice for investors as they take advantage of lower interest rates, and we may begin to see more people investing in bricks and mortar to supplement their pensions.
“Additionally, we are likely to see a rise in general activity as buyers begin to refocus their attention on property following the summer. As a result, we are anticipating a very busy September auction.”
