Are you looking to sell property or land at auction?
Selling property at auction is a fantastic way to sell if you’re looking for a speedy, secure and stress-free sale. It also provides both a transparency of sale and high degree of certainty rarely available through private treaty methods, ensuring that your property is sold to a buyer willing to pay the most on the day. The entire process, from instruction to exchange of contracts, can take as little as four to eight weeks.
Properties that are regularly under the hammer include: vacant or tenanted houses and flats, commercial and retail premises, land and development sites, former churches and care homes, property for modernisation or renovation, ground rents, lock up garages, mixed use and investment property.
Together with our nationwide auctioneer partners (who include leading UK auction houses - Bond Wolfe, Clive Emson, Auction House and Future Property Auctions), we will advise the approximate price that you can expect to achieve through selling at auction.
If you decide to progress with the auction sale, we will then agree a guide price with you (which will reflect your minimum acceptable sale price, also known as a "reserve price"), chat through the timescales, legal pack requirements and fees to sell, and basically "hold your hand" throughout the whole process.
There are a number of reasons to sell at auction, including:
Fixed exchange and completion dates from the outset mean you will know exactly when your property will be sold, with the process taking as little as 6 to 8 weeks.
With an immediate exchange of contracts on the auction day or at the end of the online auction, you will have security of sale without the risk of the chain falling through or being gazundered.
Extensive marketing, combined with competitive bidding, ensures that you achieve the best price for your property on the day. Plus, you set the reserve price, so your property will never sell for less than you are prepared to accept.
Flexible selling options
There are several auctions throughout the year, so you can select the date that best suits you. If you can’t wait until the next auction, you can choose to sell via an online auction facility, offering more flexible start and finish dates.
