In 2016, SDL Graham Penny raised over £12.5m for its Leicester vendors and sold more than 100 lots under the hammer – more than any other auctioneer in the city. Now, the Leicester team is once again offering free property appraisal for anyone looking to sell by auction.

Andrew Parker, auctioneer and managing director, commented: “The sale of property by traditional auction is a proven method of achieving the best price. More importantly, a sale by auction is secure and cannot fall through; once the hammer falls, the property is sold, contracts are exchanged in the auction room and will usually complete in 21 days.

“We are seeing an increasing number of vendors instructing us to sell their properties after their private treaty sales have fallen through and in some cases we’ve sold more than they were due to achieve with an estate agent.”

Since inception in 2006, SDL Graham Penny has sold more than 5,000 lots across the East Midlands and raised over £500m for clients. Formerly Graham Penny Auctions, it joined the SDL Group in early 2016, making the SDL Auctions network the fourth largest in the UK and the biggest outside of London.

In 2017, SDL Graham Penny is holding more than 30 auctions across the East Midlands including six at the home of Leicester City Football Club, the King Power Stadium. The auctions will be held on Thursday 16th February, Thursday 27th April, Friday 23rd June, Thursday 10th August, Friday 6th October and Thursday 23rd November.

Andrew added: “I encourage anyone looking to sell their property to get in touch for a free no obligation auction appraisal. We can tell you what sale price you can expect to achieve, the likely timescales and costs involved.”
