When I previously wrote about buying a town centre car park for sale I had no idea of the huge interest in investing in this area of the market.
Since then, I have been flooded with requests for more information about car parks for sale. Now, I have to hold my hands up – I am not a car park expert – however I feel I should do my bit for all of you who are interested in buying and investing in a car park for sale.
So here is my auction round up of car parks for sale in the UK. All car parks are being sold at upcoming property auctions shortly. I have provided details of the auctioneers, so if you are interested – please contact the auctioneer direct.
Lastly, I would love to hear of any car park success stories – so if you do get lucky – please do share your story 🙂
