Why Sell At Auction?

Posted on: 22 June 2017

1. Ease

Property Auctions offer one of the most simple and effective ways to sell all types of property and land. The process puts you as the seller in the driving seat and eliminates many of the common pitfalls associated with selling on the open market.

2. Speed

Successful bidders exchange contracts on the night of the Auction with completion usually taking place 28 days later.

3. Certainty of sale

The Auction process offers sellers a very high degree of certainty that a sale will be achieved at the Auction. The buyer is committed to purchase the property on the fall of the hammer and no further renegotiation can take place.

4. Best price

A high-profile and focussed marketing campaign ensures high levels of interest and competitive bidding in the Auction room. Through this competition you can be assured that the best possible price for your property is achieved.

5. Transparency

An Auction sale is in a public room and anyone is free to attend and bid. This can be an ideal method of sale for those sellers who have a duty to ensure that the best price is achieved, such as Executors, Charities and Local Authorities.
