Selling at Auction

There are many benefits of selling at auction;

  • Best price - Gathering all potential purchasers together in the same place at the same time creates competition so you can be sure the price achieved is the best you could get on the day, which is often more than selling by private treaty.
  • Speed - In most cases, completion is set for 28 days after the date of the auction. This is legal and binding.
  • No re-negotiation - Once the hammer falls you have exchanged contracts at the agreed price so there is no re-negotiating to take survey findings and no undermining.
  • High profile marketing - The properties are marketed both locally and nationally to create the greatest amount of interest.
  • No fall through - Once the hammer falls, your buyer is legally committed and cannot change their mind.
  • Open house - Each property has a specially promoted open house event attended by a member of Town & Country Property Auction’s staff.
