According to Joff Van Reenen, Director and Lead Auctioneer at High Street Auctions, "the auction industry is growing year on year, certainly in the property space, where our auctions have become a trusted trading platform. Live auctions are still the preferred choice for discerning and serious buyers and sellers. It is exciting and has an element of allure."

Although this year began with the first interest rate increase in six years and a higher fuel price, we anticipate that the increased demand for property experienced during the latter half of 2013 will continue, resulting in an ongoing rise in property prices during 2014, concludes James Dall, Joint Managing Director of High Street Auctions.
