Our flexible auction routes - A step by step guide
Step 1 - Let’s start at home
We’ll discuss and agree an undisclosed Reserve Price (the price your property will not sell for any less than) and a Starting Bid (the price that the property is marketed to generate interest).
Step 2 - Preparation
Your estate agent will prepare all property details, take photographs and arrange the EPC if required. We will also go through an identification and verification process with you.
Step 3 - The Auction Pack
The team will begin preparing the Auction Pack including all legal documentation. The cost for the pack is £445 including VAT and is only payable by you if your property sells.
Step 4 - Pre-Auction Marketing
We begin to advertise your property whilst the Auction Pack is being prepared, to generate as much exposure, interest and viewings as possible.
Step 5 - Ready, set, go!
After 14-21 days, an end date and time is set on your bespoke auction and your property goes ‘live’, meaning bids can be made via the online or room auction.
Step 6 - Bidding
All prospective bidders must download the Auction Pack and accept the terms before bidding. Bids can be viewed and made in real time, 24/7.
Step 7 - Once the auction ends...
Modern Method - The successful buyer is required to pay either a Reservation Fee or a Reservation Deposit and sign a Reservation Form. (Please refer to the FAQs for more information.) The property is then reserved to the buyer. The buyer and seller are then required to unconditionally exchange contracts and complete the transaction within 56 days.
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.
