The auction got off on the right foot after lot 1, a studio apartment in Exeter City Centre, sold for above its guide price for £66,500.
Wendy Alexander, Senior Auction Surveyor, said: ‘We had another busy turnout and there was fierce bidding in the room and from the phones.’
Lot 4, a four-bedroom mid terrace property in Bristol, impressed at auction and was eventually sold for £237,500; more than £45,000 over its guide price.
Senior Auction Surveyor at Countrywide, Audrey Smith, said: ‘It was another busy catalogue which brought in another busy room.
‘We raised over £1.5 million.’

Countrywide South West’s next auction will be held on Thursday, 7th September at Sandy Park Conference Centre, Exeter.
