A WILDERSPOOL business has sold for £20,000 more than expected at an auction.

The empty Executive House building on Wilderspool Causeway sold at an auction at Manchester’s AJ Bell Stadium last week.

Listed for offers over £135,000, the single storey office building went for £155,000.

SDL Auctions Andy Thompson said: “It was another successful day in the auction room with some great outcomes for our sellers.

“The lots were as varied as ever, showing that there is no typical auction property – and equally there is no typical auction buyer, too.

“Auction is a hassle-free and straightforward way to buy property and it’s particularly satisfying to know that both buyers and sellers will have their transactions completed within 20 days so they can start renovating, earning an income from or even moving into their new properties before the summer is over.”
