Several Birmingham houses needing works have starting prices from around £50,000 at auction

They may need some tender loving care and attention, but a range of Birmingham properties have attractive starting prices in Bond Wolfe’s livestreamed auction next week.

Leading the way is a three-bedroomed, end-terraced house at 3 Northlands Road in the trendy suburb of Moseley, which will have a guide price* of just £50,000+ in the auction on Thursday 14 September.

This freehold property has front and back gardens and opens up through a storm porch into a hall with understairs cupboard, leading into two reception rooms and kitchen.

There is a landing, three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, with double glazing throughout.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “This house is in need of thorough modernisation, reflected by its attractive guide price, but it’s location in Moseley is bound to result in competitive bidding.”

It is a similar story for a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 120 Yarningale Road, in the neighbouring suburb of Kings Heath, where the need for works throughout means a guide price of £49,000+.

This freehold property has a hall, through reception room and kitchen with no fittings downstairs, a landing, three bedrooms plus bathroom upstairs, and driveway and gardens outside.

Refurbishment is also needed for a four-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 17 Woodacre Road across the city in Erdington, with a guide price of £49,000+.

This freehold property stands back from the road with front and back gardens, plus the potential to add rear access for vehicles via a service road, subject to planning permission.

There is a porch, hall with understairs cupboard, two reception rooms, kitchen and covered side passageway on the ground floor, and then a landing, three bedrooms, bathroom and toilet upstairs.
