What is an Auction?

Auction is a process which allows interested buyers to make competitive bids or offers which establishes the true market value of a property in an open, transparent and public environment, under the guidance of a skilled Auctioneer.

Why Auction real estate?

When you are selling you want to get the best possible price in the shortest possible time and statistics show that the auction process is the best way to achieve these goals.  The auction process is not limited to elite or unusual properties, it has been proven to suit any type of property. 

The auction process has a range of benefits:

  • the short, sharp marketing campaign makes the property stand out from the crowd;
  • the auction date gives buyers a deadline in which they must act;
  • you get an idea of what the market is willing to pay for your property;
  • you have three opportunities to sell - before the auction, on the day, or after; and
  • even if they don't sell under the hammer, properties sold by auction tend to sell in a shorter time frame than those sold by private treaty.
