Scott Gray from, Homes Under The Hammer, has his eye on the Suffolk property market
A former TV star is on the lookout for homes across the county for his new online auction room.
Scott Gray, who people may recognise from his time on popular BBC show Homes Under The Hammer, has got hi eye on the Suffolk property market for his 247propertyauctions business.
In particular, he has his eye on the Ipswich area, where he recently sold houses in Ashley Street and Holland Road for a combined £273,000 in partnership with Marks and Mann.
Mr Gray Said: “I’ve been running my own successful business at 247 Property Auctions for the last 3 years and sold over £35 million in value; I still get the most amazing buzz when the hammer slams down and I close a sale.
“Ipswich is a treasure trove of amazing properties and the ideal location near London for those still commuting to London.
“We are now looking for more residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial, and amenity land plots locally and around Suffolk.
“Many people don’t realise that selling your property at auction can be more productive than estate agents, and I always apply the ‘handbrake test’ when I visit every location I sell; If it’s not auctionable, then I’ll drive on with my famous stripey jacket in tow.”
Mr Gray appeared on Homes Under The Hammer from 2003 to 2016.
He launched 247propertyauctions 3 years ago, and its website can be found here.
Marks and Mann is an independent estate agents and property valuation experts in Ipswich, whilst working across Stowmarket, Martlesham and wider Suffolk.
