Why Buy a Property at Auction?

Buying a house at auction is often the best way to secure a property at the lowest possible cost. Many properties sold at auction are in need of significant repair and refurbishment and the price reflects this.

Where properties in good condition are sold, they tend to be repossessions being auctioned to pay back the attached debt. In these cases, although the auction price is only slightly less than the full market value, the property can be flipped back onto the market quickly, meaning fast profits can be generated for little additional investment.

For professional developers, auctions are great places to pick up properties which are free from housing chains and can be transferred easily and quickly, allowing them to get to work straight away, renovating and adding value.

Whether you are looking for a home or a business opportunity, it always pays to know how to buy a property at auction.

How Do I Arrange Property Auction Finance?

Auction finance should be in place before you attempt to bid for auctioned properties. This is to ensure that you are able to meet the completion deadline, usually 20 days from the acceptance of your bid. Failure to meet the deadline could result in cancellation of the purchase and loss of your deposit, typically 10% of the winning bid.
