Buying a property at auction

Auctions have become an increasingly fascinating process for most of us due to the popularity of programmes such as ‘Homes under the Hammer’! At Phillips Smith & Dunn we use the phrase ‘auction means action’ and it really does, as well as being extremely exciting for vendors and purchasers. Auction sales have become more and more common over the last few years with all different types of lots being offered, from investment properties to family homes.

Benefits of selling property at auction

Best Price- Auction creates the most competitive market between genuine buyers. The price goes up, not down.

Flexibility- You can sell your property before the auction date if a very attractive offer is made.

Speed - Some sales by Private Treaty can take many weeks or even months to exchange once an offer is made. At auction exhange takes place on a defined date with completion usually 28 days after........Thats why Auction Means Action!

Certainty- once the hammer falls contracts are exchanged meaning there is no risk of re-negotiation or purchasers withdrawing their offer.
