Modern Method Auction
No Sales Commission To Pay

Selling via the Auction Method explained

1.Choose Your Sales Method

Modern Method
Upon the close of the auction, the successful purchaser is required to pay a reservation fee/deposit and sign a reservation form. In return for this the buyer reserves the right to unconditionally exchange contracts on a property at an agreed price within 28 days and complete 28 days thereafter. This method is more suited to the residential purchaser, allowing time for surveys and finance to be arranged. 

Traditional Method
Contracts are exchanged immediately, with completion taking place within the next 28 days. Complete security is provided but this method is more suited to the property professional as it is legally binding.

2. Choose Your Preferred Payment Method

Vendor Paid
You can opt to pay the sales fee instead of the fee being charged to the purchaser. If you decide to do this we will take a non refundable deposit from the buyer secure the sale. 

Reservation Fee (paid by the buyer)
Under this payment method, the buyer will pay a non refundable reservation fee in addition to the purchase price. This covers the costs of the auction and as this is paid on a non refundable basis, you know the buyers is serious and in a proceedable position.

3. The Auction & Sale Progression
Once you have selected your auction and payment type, you will be assigned a personal auction coordinator who will keep you updated with viewing feedback and bids. Your auction coordinator will become your point of contact; they will provide weekly activity updates and guide you through the process. Upon successful conclusion of the auction, our expert sales progression team will manage the sale through to completion and keep you updated at every step along the way.

Seller Benefits

Guaranteed Increase in Interest
The pricing strategy that we employ creates increased levels of interest and viewings and increases the chances of selling your property quickly. 

Achieve Fair Market Value
Think about how an owner of a piece of fine art maximises its value? They sell it at auction! Due to the increased marketing and unique pricing strategy that we operate, we guarantee to get you the fairest price in the current market. A property will always sell for what its worth, plus you have a reserve price so you know it wont sell for anything less than the one you are happy with. 

A Fixed Date to Sell & Move
Fixed time scales for exchange & completion provide clarity for both parties. A fixed time scale is not often set when selling a property through private treaty with sales taking much longer than anticipated. This added security is a big benefit to most vendors looking to move forward with confidence.
