It needs lots of care and attention, but a guide price* of £15,000+ could make this boarded up property on Merseyside a great little project for a buyer with DIY skills.

The two-bedroomed, mid-terraced house at 11 Shakespeare Street in Bootle is appearing in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction on Wednesday 17 February.

The accommodation includes a hall, two reception rooms and kitchen downstairs, with a landing, two bedrooms, bathroom with no fittings and toilet upstairs, and a rear yard outside.

It’s not the only potential bargain at the auction, with another two-bedroomed, mid-terraced house with a similar lay-out at 20 Orwell Road in Kirkdale also having a guide price of £15,000+.

More two-bedroomed, mid-terraced houses in the auction are at 51 Sandhead Street, near Edge Hill railway station, and at numbers 35 and 70 Parkside Road in Birkenhead, and all three come with guide prices of £20,000+.

Gurpeet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “Properties that come with such low guide prices often reflect the need for refurbishment, but there’s no reason why owners with vision, skills or money to invest shouldn’t turn these into decent little starter homes.”

Keen buyers who want something a little larger might bid for the three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 1 Moorhey Road in the town of Maghull, near Aintree, which has a guide price of £54,000 to £59,000.

This property has a driveway, garage, gardens, central heating and double glazing, although it is in need of some modernisation.

Head north up the coast to Southport and there’s another three-bedroomed, semi-detached house with gardens at 42 Kensington Road, with a guide price of £54,000 to £59,000 again reflecting the need for refurbishment.

Mr Bassi added: “We have a growing number of properties across Merseyside and the surrounding areas that we expect will be popular either with first-time buyers with an eye for handy work or landlords looking to extend their property portfolio.”

The lots described are among a record-breaking total of 232 lots that will go under the hammer at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ auction which starts earlier than usual at 8.30am on 17 February.

The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe Auctions’ website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only, click here to register to bid.
