Six Reasons To Sell Your House At Auction


Whether selling a sleek apartment, a commercial property or a dilapidated cottage, everyone wants to find a buyer for their property as quick as they can and at the best possible price. Selling at auction is the easiest way to get the results you want with minimum hassle, whatever type of property you hope to sell. Here’s why it could be the best decision you’ve ever made:

Speed – Sell fast and without fuss by using an auction house with a proven track record of shifting property. Auctioneer Phillip Arnold has over 30 years’ experience in the industry and can sell your property far quicker than if you used the traditional route. Once the auction has ended, a completion date usually follows around a month later so you know exactly when to expect final payment and can plan your future finances with complete peace of mind.

The personal touch – Whether it’s your first time selling through auction or you are a corporate client with several properties to shift, using the right auction house means someone else can oversee the details for you and answer any questions you may have. Phillip Arnold Auctions guarantees a personalised service for every client so will be at the end of the phone whenever you need advice on selling your property.

Buyers for all properties – Auctions are the best place to attract buyers looking for something out of the ordinary. Unusual properties or ones that need work doing might struggle to be sold by an estate agent, but won’t encounter similar issues at an auction attended by developers or those looking for a project. Using an auction house is an easy way to reach your future buyer.

The best price – The excitement of bidding alongside others in an auction often generates competitive bidding and the best possible price for your property. Using an experienced auctioneer makes it far more likely you will exceed the reserve price.

A sale you can rely on – Once the hammer falls on a property, the buyer is committed to the purchase and must pay a deposit of 10% on the day of the auction. All interested parties will already have commissioned a survey on the property if desired and have their finances in order so no one will waste your time.

Target your buyer directly – There's no need to rely on a leaflet in an estate agent’s window or even a tiny photo on a website. Respected auction houses have their own database of active buyers and know exactly how to target them. Phillip Arnold Auctions will market your property through print advertisements, selling boards and all well-known property portals but also send details to a database of 25,000 potential buyers. Chances are, your buyer is one of them.
