£10k for Blackburn house

Edward Mellor has 76 lots on offer at its next auction on 2 May at Lancashire County Cricket Ground in Trafford.

The Stockport-based auction house said 52 of 70 lots were sold at the March auction, many above reserve.

Eye-catching lots at the next sale include Rope Cottage in Blackburn, a detached house in need of full renovation, with a guide price of £10,000. Another is a four-bed house on Thurlby Street in Victoria Park, Manchester on for £120,000.

Louise McDonald head of auction services at Edward Mellor, said: "In the past many vendors might have disregarded the auction route when it comes to selling property. Now though, attitudes are changing. Nothing beats the excitement and interest of a Property Auction and we take great pride in seeing our vendors get deals they previously thought impossible, and buyers get deals that would otherwise be unavailable to them."

Edward Mellor's next auction takes place at 2pm on 2 May 2012 at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Old Trafford.
