25 Pilgrim Street

Prime student house in next Sutton Kersh sale

A four-storey Grade 2-listed town house on Pilgrim Street in Liverpool's Georgian Quarter is among 91 lots in Sutton Kersh's next auction on 3 April.

The six-bed student accommodation investment is currently let by way of an assured shorthold tenancy at a passing rent of £31,500 a year and will be offered as the final lot of the day guided at £295,000-plus.

Another Grade 2-listed detached building attracting a good level of interest is 16 Acrefield Road located in the heart of Woolton Village. Similar properties on the same road which have been refurbished have sold through traditional estate agents for £180,000. This property is guided at £100,000.

Cathy Holt, auction manager at Sutton Kersh, said: "We have seen strong improvements in both the supply and demand of auction property over the past six months. This year in particular has started incredibly well. High levels of viewings converted into high levels of sales at our February auction. Viewing figures have been high for our April auction and we are hoping for a similar outcome. Whilst interest rates remain at historically low levels, and with the recent news of inflation falling to 3.4% property is a good investment at this time for those who can afford it. Guide prices start at nil reserve in our current catalogue demonstrating the incredible deals that are available at auction."

The sale is due to take place at the Liverpool city centre Marriott Hotel at 12 noon on 3 April.
