From what I know of auctions in 1999, the guide price was typically 10% below the reserve.
You need to find out the actual sale price to make a comparison.

You need to include the value of the rental income since 1999 if you are going to adjust down by the value of inflation.

Er, not necessarily. I’m simply comparing the price then with the price now (in real, not nominal, terms). Simple as that.

Ok, can’t find this house on Brighton Square’s auction result but:
