Why sell a property at Auction?

  • There are a limited number of properties selected per Auction so your property is marketed internationally to a wide audience on a very individual basis.
  • As our commission rate is so low at 1.75%, there is a considerable saving to you on the value of your property and therefore attracts more potential buyers.
  • When you put a competitive reserve price on your property, this in turn will result in attracting more people bidding on the property which in turn will increase the selling price over and above the reserve.
  • With our Auction terms and conditions, completion is within 45 working days.
