When it comes to selling or buying property, auctions have become an increasingly popular and efficient option. They offer swift transactions and smoother sales, even for properties that may take longer to sell on the open market. At Country Properties, we leverage modern technology to provide you with a wide range of auctioning options. Our experts are here to guide you through the process and help you achieve the best outcome for your property. Contact us today to explore how our auction services can work for you. Whether you’re looking to schedule a no-obligation auction valuation or simply want to discuss our services, our team is ready to provide the quality advice and expertise you need.
We understand that selecting the appropriate auction method is crucial. Our team can assist you in determining the best approach based on your property and personal circumstances. You may opt for the traditional auction method, where your property becomes a lot in a live auction event. Alternatively, you can embrace modern methods and have your property listed in a conditional auction, often conducted online.
Each method offers distinct advantages. Online auctions utilise the power of the internet, allowing interested buyers from around the world to bid on your property. Deposits or reservation fees are paid after a winning bid, and the transaction is typically completed within 56 days. Contracts are exchanged within four weeks of the buyer’s solicitor receiving a draft contract.
Traditional auctions, on the other hand, are renowned events frequently featured on popular television programs. They provide a fast-paced selling experience, even for properties that might face challenges on the open market. In this method, contracts are exchanged immediately, and 10 percent of the sale price is paid upfront, ensuring a swift property move. Completion usually takes only 28 days using this approach.
There are several compelling reasons to select us as your trusted auction partner. Our superior service level sets us apart, as we go the extra mile to keep you fully informed about the process, providing regular updates on viewings and feedback. This ensures you’re well-prepared for auction day. Additionally, we maintain a transparent pricing structure, whether you’re buying or selling property with us.
Furthermore, Country Properties maximises the buying and selling potential of your property at auction. Just like our open market properties, we dedicate significant efforts to market and advertise your auction properties effectively. We utilise various channels, including popular property portals like Rightmove, OnTheMarket, Zoopla and the Country Properties website, to ensure your property gains the attention it deserves and achieves a price that meets or exceeds your expectations.
