The rapidly increasing level of demand for Guernsey’s open market property, prompted in part by Guernsey’s status as Covid-19 safe haven, has added to the excitement of a rare Open Market auction.
Trevor Cooper from Cooper Brouard estate agents who will be handling the sale commented: “The combination of an interesting property in a sought-after location will generate strong interest in a resurging market and an auction suits perfectly the vendors’ preferred timeframe”.
The spacious property is situated on an elevated site in St Saviour’s and could also attract attention from developers or investors. Asked to speculate on where the purchaser might hail from Trevor said: “The buyer is likely to be locally based but could just as possibly come from further afield. Of course, they can’t come over to view at present, but we have previously sold property via video views, so that is still an option, especially for buyers who already have links to or knowledge of the island.
“Someone may bid on their behalf at the auction, or through Cooper Brouard by telephone or other media, provided they register to bid in advance. Auctions always generate a lot of public interest and we welcome anyone on the day to share in the fascination of this salient and traditional custom first hand”.
The auction takes place on Thursday 28th January at 12 midday.
