Fancy a cheap Black Country home?

34 Argyle Road, Wolverhampton, WV2 4NY

A selection of houses priced as low as £19,000 are going under the hammer.

A range of terraced and semi-detached homes in Wolverhampton are being sold off by SDL Auctions on February 15 at Aston Villa football ground.

And a few of the bargain buys are sure to tempt property hunters.

The housing gems include a two-bed mid-terraced houses in Ivyhouse Lane, Coseley and one at Blackhalve Lane, Wednesfield starting at £19,000 each; a three-bed mid-terraced house in Argyle Road, Wolverhampton also starting at £19,000; and a three-bed semi-detached house in Great Bridge Road, Bilston starting at £29,000.

Head of residential auctions at SDL, Gurpreet Bassi, said the firm was starting the year ‘on a high’ with a catalogue packed with 155 residential and investment properties, commercial properties, development sites, building plots and land lots based all across the county.

He said: “Included in our catalogue this month are several investment properties in and around Wolverhampton with potential for development and refurbishment.

“I have no doubt these lots will see some competitive bidding in the auction room.


“Many of our buyers come to our auctions because they’re looking a refurbishment project and something to add value to.”

Substantial work

The budget homes appear to require substantial work.

The property at Argyle Road has a living room with large chunks of plaster missing from the wall, and a grass-less garden with a pit of rubbish in the centre.


And the terraced house in Blackhalve Lane would benefit from a modern makeover to get rid of dated carpet and wallpaper.

The living room of the home also has a staircase directly in the centre of the space.

But the properties have their charms – the more expensive of the homes in Great Bridge Road, comes with a large, basic utility room to go alongside a good-sized kitchen, two reception rooms, a bathroom and a separate WC. All four homes feature sizeable gardens in need of care and attention – for those looking for a green-fingered project.

Mr Bassi at SDL added: “Anyone interested in bidding on any of the lots in our Villa Park auction on February 15 can attend and bid in person, or if they’re not able to make it to the auction room can submit a proxy, telephone or online bid.

“Or if you simply want to see an auction in action you can watch live on our website.”
