Our October property auction is just days away, but you’re unable to attend. Maybe you’re escaping the cold and enjoying the sun for a couple weeks with the kids over the half-term holidays; or the venue is too far away for you too travel to; or it’s being held at an inconvenient time.
Whatever the reason may be, we don’t want you to miss out!
There are a few things we can do to help you secure your sale, if you’ve got your eye on any of the lots available.
Although each property is set to be sold under the gavel, sometimes our vendors accept offers prior to auction day.
If a particular property has caught your attention and you would like to make a pre-auction offer, please give our team a call on 0161 443 4740.
If you’d prefer to join in on the bidding, you can do this via our telephone or proxy bidding service.
With telephone bidding, a member of our team will call you just before the lot you want to bid on goes under the gavel.
They will then converse with you and bid on your behalf upon your specific instruction and inform you of competing bids.
Although this is a great way of joining in on the action, you do need to make sure you’re somewhere quiet and in a location with good signal.
You may wish to advise us of your maximum bid in advance, just in case your connection is lost.
With proxy bidding, you advise our team the maximum amount you’d be willing to bid on a particular lot.
The team then bid on your behalf in line with the bidding in the room up to your specified amount.
However, if the bidding in the room exceeds your maximum amount, then your proxy bid would end.
Arrangements will need to be set up prior to auction day, with information provided, documents signed and funds made available for the purchase deposit should your bid be successful.
You will also need to provide ID and will be expected to have done all the usual due diligence in advance.
