Prices for Birmingham homes ranging from £335,000 to £5,000 in Bond Wolfe’s December auction

From large four-bedroomed homes in Castle Bromwich to single bedroom bungalows in Erdington, scores of homes across Birmingham are going under the hammer at Bond Wolfe’s auction in December.

And guide prices* vary just as widely, from £335,000 all the way down to just £10,000, offering remarkable value to house hunters and investors looking for a bargain.

Some may need modernisation or refurbishment, but a guide price of £50,000+ for a three-bedroomed mid terraced house at 66 Howard Road, in the highly desirable borough of Solihull, is sure to attract highly competitive bidding at the live-streamed auction on Wednesday 8 December.

With gardens front and rear, a reception room, kitchen, pantry and bathroom with WC on the ground floor and three bedrooms upstairs, the property does have UPVC double glazing fitted.

Meanwhile, in the increasingly popular Birmingham suburb of Erdington, a three-bedroomed semi detached house at 64 Dunvegan Road has a guide price of only £44,000-£49,000.

With gardens front and back it is laid ot with a hall, through-reception room, a dining kitchen and sun room on the ground floor, with three bedrooms and the bathroom with WC upstairs. UPVC double glazing is fitted but, again, it is in need of modernisation.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “At a time when property prices are rising, we always have many bidders who come to our auctions with a focus on finding a bargain.

“These two are great examples of some of the properties we have on offer that could make great family homes once a bit of loving care and attention has been invested in them.”

One property likely to be the focus of many bidders’ attention is the four-bedroomed detached house at 30 Marlborough Road, Castle Bromwich. With a guide price of £335,000+, it stands close to the village centre and local amenities in a quiet residential area.

This spacious home has a largely brick paved front drive, with a generous rear garden set out on two levels with lawns and a patio. Inside there are two large reception rooms, the kitchen and a utility area with a store and WC as well as an integral garage. Upstairs it offers three double bedrooms, a single bedroom, bathroom and separate WC.

As well as gas-fired central heating and UPVC double glazing, it is also fitted with an alarm system.

Across the city, in Kings Norton, a bargain basement guide price of £10,000+ has been set for the one bedroomed bungalow at 104 Hillmeads Road. With gardens outside, it is laid out with a hall, store, reception room, kitchen, bedroom and a shower room with WC. Gas-fired central heating and UPVC double glazing are fitted.

And a guide price of just £5,000+ has been set for a leasehold three-bedroomed first floor apartment in Great Barr. Flat 11, at 312 Newton Road, is set in grounds with communal parking and has a garage in a separate block. It is laid out with a reception room, kitchen, bathroom with WC and three bedrooms, one with a balcony.

It has an electric heating system and UPVC double glazing. There is around 128 years of the lease remaining, a £193 per month service charge and ground rent of around £100 per annum.

Mr Bassi added: “Wherever people want to look in Birmingham, and at whatever price level, we’re sure to have something to suit first time buyers, families wanting to find somewhere bigger, or landlords looking to increase their portfolio.”

The Birmingham properties are among 197 lots that will appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which starts at 9 am on Wednesday 8 December. The auction will be live-streamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only.
