WE OFFER A NUMBER OF FLEXIBLE WAYS TO SELL A PROPERTY ONLINE SO WHATEVER YOUR SITUATION, WE HAVE A SOLUTION AND TIMESCALE TO SUIT YOU
The online method is considered to be a more flexible auction method. The purchaser pays a reservation fee to secure the property and it's granted 28 days to exchange contracts and a further 28 or 56 days to complete. By offering a longer time period, this can extend the appeal by giving the purchasers the flexibility to arrange a mortgage and can often achieve a higher price than the traditional auction method.* Purchasers are used to paying fees when buying a property at auction. By selecting to sell with no fees, we can charge the buyer a reservation fee, meaning you keep all of your sale proceeds
Our online auctions give you total flexibility over the sale of your property, enabling you to set a timescale to suit your circumstances. At the end of the auction your buyer will be committed to their purchase by either paying a reservation fee or 10% deposit depending on the type of sale you choose.
This is the minimum amount for which you are willing to sell your property
OF THE AUCTION
This can be up to 30 days from the date going online. The longer the auction period the greater the chance of achieving the maximum amount for property, however a shorter period can be chosen if time is of the essence.
A legal pack must be uploaded prior to the start of the auction. We can recommend our legal partners or you can instruct your own solicitors.
THE BIDS COME IN
Bids are placed in minimum increments according the value of the property. Any bids placed in the final 5 minutes of the auction will extend the timer by 15 minutes to allow everyone a fair chance to bid.
If the reserve is met or exceeded when the auction timer ends, an exclusivity period begins in relation to that the property requiring them to exchange contracts on or before 28 days from the end of the auction. The buyer is automatically charged a reservation fee.
