Traditionally an auction has been regarded as a means of selling cheap, run down properties and repossessions BUT the real growth over the last few years has been in the popularity of selling residential family homes. It’s all about extensively promoting a property to the widest audience possible and creating the appeal – that way you secure the best available price in the current market. If you are sticking out for a price unachievable in the current market then we cannot help, but if you want to sell your property for the best price you can currently achieve after being marketed by the best local estate agents – then we are the people to talk to.
We offer a secure and straight forward method of selling now, at the best possible price, with the benefit of a non refundable buyer’s deposit.
Your Choice – which do you prefer?
Our Auction Service:
The “traditional” auction where on the fall of the gavel the buyer pays a 10% deposit (subject to a minimum of £3,500) and exchanges contracts immediately. The buyer is legally bound to purchase and you as the seller are legally bound to sell. Completion is within 28 days. That’s it –the deal is done.
This is designed to appeal to the private residential market where, on the fall of the gavel, contracts are exchanged and the buyer places a £3,500 non refundable deposit to The Auction Agents and agrees (subject to notice not being served to withdraw within 28 days) to complete within a maximum 42 days. This commitment removes the stress and uncertainty from the process. The monthly property auction allows you to achieve the optimum price with the security of a buyers deposit and agreed timescale.

Why consider The Auction Agents?
Achieving the maximum price is paramount in today's economic climate. Many properties come onto the market and then the price is reduced and reduced until a sale is hopefully achieved but buyers are cautious about property that has been on the market for a long time. Our Auctions fix this problem. They are open, friendly and relaxed events which allow you to bid with confidence. Your local estate agent will support you through the process and The Auction Agents will invite he buyers (and the sellers if they wish) to a great venue where they can enjoy the process.
Our marketing programme starts with our local and experienced auctioneer agreeing an attractive price guide to stimulate interest and reach a higher selling price. Your local estate agent will manage the property viewings, check buyers are suitable for a mortgage if one is needed and we will then provide feedback to you as the auction date gets closer.
On the date of the auction we have a room of committed buyers and this encourages competitive bidding ensuring you receive the best selling price. Many sellers actually receive higher sale prices for their properties at auction as two or more people battle for the property in the auction room.
Since the true value of your property is what someone is actually prepared to pay for it our marketing programme and auction process aims to secure you the best price in the market at the time of the auction.
Our comprehensive marketing is the key to your success – with our local estate agent partners your property is widely marketed on the internet, in the press and in offices throughout your region.
Our friendly auctions and our Auction + service attract local buyers as well as cash rich dealers – it really is the best of all worlds.
It's fast - On acceptance of an offer, the buyer agrees to a timescale, giving you the peace of mind of an agreed exchange date.
Control - You are in complete control, you set a reserve price and the property CANNOT be sold for a penny below.
Set Price – On the fall of the gavel the sales price is set and non negotiable. Selling by private treaty often results in purchasers trying to renegotiate a price after survey results on a property and in the worse scenario pulling out of the sale. In the current market, “gazundering” is becoming more apparent and this is a situation where a buyer, a few days before the move, calls the Estate Agent and advises that unless the seller is willing to reduce the price, they will pull out of the sale.
Security - The successful buyer places a non returnable financial deposit. If the buyer withdraws from the sale they will forfeit the deposit.
