Vendor Analysis

The trend of a decrease in distressed residential lots offered at auction continued in 2015, falling to 25.7%, down from 28.4% in 2014 and over a third of all lots in 2013 – in part a product of sustained economic growth.

The largest shift was in the proportion of lots from private sellers, which increased to 25.3% (414), compared with 15.5% (290) in 2014, possibly due to anticipated tax changes in buy-to-let. The proportion of lots sold by property companies also shifted, down five points to 32.8% (538) from 37.8% (709) in 2014.
