Head of Residential

I created the Auction department back in 1997 with our first sale comprising of just a handful of lots and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved since.

Why sell under the gavel?

The business was specifically set up to help people to achieve “full market value” within a short space of time

Receive offers fast

We often receive offers from interested buyers prior to the auction, meaning you may sell your property quicker than you thought!

Security

Take control of your property’s value by setting a reserve price at the minimum you are prepared to accept before the auction takes place.

Speed of sale

Lots sold at auction take just 28 days to complete, meaning you receive your cash faster. This also applies to properties sold subject to, pre, or post auction offers.

Hybrid Agency

We’re the only auction house to leverage the power of both auction and our estate agents. This allows us to market your property to more potential buyers.

Certainty

From the moment the gavel goes down, the sale exchanges – meaning your buyer is contractually obliged to purchase your property.

Experience

We’ve been successfully selling at auction for over 20 years.

We are not suitable for…

Anyone who is happy waiting months to sell their property

We get people moving quickly. If you’d prefer a guaranteed slow sale, poor customer care and lack of attention to your needs, we’d suggest phoning your local agents.

Anyone who isn’t 100% committed to selling their property

We are dedicated and tireless in our efforts to secure the full market value for all our customers in the shortest space of time.

Anyone who doesn’t care about a high level of service and only values cheap fees

We assist you with all aspects of selling your property for the highest possible price with guidance every step of the way. We also actively assist you in every way we can with your new home


Frequently Asked Questions

What is sales commission?

Sales commission is the fee charged by the auctions team for successfully selling the property. It is invoiced after exchange of contracts and usually settled by deduction from the deposit paid by the purchaser. The rate of commission is agreed between the seller and auctions team and shown in the Agency Agreement which sets out the fees and terms of business that apply.

What is an entry fee?

An entry fee is a charge paid by the seller to the auctions team. This cost is to cover the cost of entering the property into the catalogue, the extensive marketing and promotion during the run up to the auction, right through to the auction day itself. It is usually paid when you instruct the team to sell your property, but on occasions and with prior agreement it may be settled from deposit monies on exchange of contracts.

Where will my property be marketed?

Your property will be marketed on Rightmove, Zoopla and our own website. We also advertise your property on out social media where it can reach thousands of additional buyers looking to find a property just like your. Finally we market to our extensive database of over 50,000 people.

Why should I choose to sell at auction?

Reasons to choose auction include the speed and certainty that it offers; there is no faster way to sell and success rates through to completion are far higher than through estate agents. Other attractions are that it delivers a legally binding sale with contracts exchanged on the fall of the hammer, so neither party can pull out of the sale or try to renegotiate the price. The competitive bidding process aims to drive the price up so the property achieves its best possible price on the day too.
