THE Daily Examiner building has been sold following an auction on Saturday.

Ford and Dougherty general manager Renai Williams said two phone bidders were registered, and a price of $900,000 was negotiated with an out-of-town investor just after the auction was scheduled.

It is understood the buyer has other investments in Grafton.

Ms Williams said commercial properties were very popular at the moment, particularly in the Clarence Valley.

"We've got properties that we're selling sight unseen," she said.

"One man who invested in a property recently literally did not know where Grafton was."

Despite the building sale, it is still business as usual for The Daily Examiner staff.
