Seller FAQs

We get asked lots of questions, especially from people interested in selling at auction. Here are a few of the popular questions - but if you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Three reasons: Maximum price, speed and security.

Yes. Selling at auction always means you will get the true value of any property. Yes the buyer is paying your fees but that does NOT mean you will get less for your property, you are saving a sales fee.

Everything and Anything. We have sold family detached houses, penthouse apartments, commercial units, businesses, new build properties and plots on behalf of builders.

Yes, you have complete control of the reserve price.

Everyone and anyone can, especially with our innovative Conditional auction. This has been devised to aim specially at the residential buyers so you don’t aim solely for cash buyers. You do not exclude any buyer who is in a proceedable position

Yes. Once accepted, a deposit is taken.

You can NEVER under sell at auction. The trick is setting an aggressive start bid to generate multiple viewings over a set time span. Then, at auction, purchasers bid against each other by proxy, phone, or internet.

Because of job relocation, emigration, matrimonial strife, death, outgrown the house, or simple frustration with ‘normal’ estate agents. Selling at auction maximises your price, offers speed and security. Anyone and everyone can sell at auction.

Anyone who wants to reach the largest audience in the shortest time to achieve best price. Vacant property rates make commercial property a significant source of business now.

By agreement with the seller, a reserve is set which can be reduced only with their agreement.

We will make arrangements with local agents for access, as every property and vendor is different and should be treated as such.

We intend to use PR as much as advertising. We work in partnership with selected publications that carry press releases about us and our properties, and we also advertise with them. We do not waste money on needless confetti announcements, preferring to target specific key opinion influencers and send them relevant information, over the internet and by catalogue.

No - when you sign the agreement you agree to us marketing the property straight away.
