Take a look at the £700,000 garages sold for 10x guide price

A row of six rundown garages in London  has been sold for an eye-watering £700,000.

The garages in Parsons Green have gone for almost 10 times their guide price of £75,000 and four times as much as the average house sold in England and Wales.

Before the sale, the owners were renting three of the garages for £65, £80 and £85 per month.

Auction House London’s director Andrew Binstock said “This lot goes to prove the auction model in all its glory: If you take an exciting development opportunity in a prime part of London marketed correctly by a good auction company with a low reserve and then opening it up to a thrilling bidding war with an auctioneer pushing the bidders hard to extract every last penny,  the outcome can be astounding!”

    Mr Binstock then went on to describe his main hobby of naked skydiving whilst taking mind altering drugs and wrestling a crocodile as "a bit tame in comparison to selling some shabby old sheds"
