Online auction is very much a 21st century solution for selling property, according to IT and software specialist Chris. Chris, who successfully sold a two-bedroom property in Watton, Norfolk, through Auction House, suggests it will only grow in popularity. "We will obviously see more members of the younger generation buying houses as time goes by and these are people who have grown up with eBay and other similar websites," he says. "They are very used to new technology and so buying property online will eventually become second nature to them." With busy lives and a new baby, Chris and his wife wanted a speedy sale for their second home - and Auction House seemed to offer a solution. The two-storey, mid-terrace house at Watton was a former RAF property, believed to be about 60 years old. It was in good condition, with an extended living area, which offered space for dining. It also came with a generous rear garden and off-road parking. "We had owned the property for about eight years - it had been my wife's home initially and then we decided to let it to tenants," he explains. "We certainly could have sold it in the usual way, through an estate agent but we wanted to sell it quickly. We had lots going on in our lives, especially with the baby, and decided we wanted everything to be less complicated." Chris contacted Auction House who visited the house and took photographs. The house was valued at £105,000 and was up on the Auction House website within just a few days of his initial phone call. "Auction House held open days for people to look at the house," he says. "There was interest and then we had an offer for the full asking price after the auction had closed. From then on, it continued to be a very quick and clean process, with Auction House overseeing everything to ensure it all went smoothly." Chris believes the auction process could suit owners of all kinds of property. "This is something I would definitely consider doing again," he admits. "In fact, I would be more than happy to sell my current house through Auction House because of this experience."
