How we can help?
SDL Auctions Bigwood is the West Midlands' most successful auction networks*. Our recent results certainly demonstrate we deliver on our objectives with the combined SDL Auctions network selling over 1,300 lots and raising more than £150m in sales for our vendors across the country in 2016, including over £76m in the West Midlands.
SDL Auctions Bigwood holds six major auctions throughout the year, each comprising in the region of 120-150 property and land opportunities, at Villa Park Stadium - home of Aston Villa Football Club.
For buyers, we sell a wide spread of residential and commercial properties, as well as land and building plots, so whatever you're looking to purchase, we are confident we can help you find what you're looking for, and for the best possible price.
Our auctions are extremely well publicised in order to achieve the best price for every property and our results often outperform the private treaty market, making selling by auction increasingly popular.
What's involved as a vendor?
The first part of the auction process is all about us giving you our professional advice on what we think we can achieve for you at auction. At this appointment we will let you know what we think the marketing price should be and talk to you about our fee structure. There is no charge for this and one of our experienced team of valuers will meet you at your property and answer any questions you have.
You decide to instruct us, and we do the work for you!
Once you've decided you'd like to auction your property, simply instruct us to proceed and then you can leave everything to us. We will market your property, conduct viewings, speak to your solicitor, provide you with feedback and talk to you about any pre-auction offers. Just before auction day we will set the reserve price with you and then your property is ready to go.
Your property sells!
We will take your buyers deposit on auction day and exchange contracts. Then 28 days later your solicitor will complete the purchase, arrange the key release, cancel any service supplies / insurance etc, request the full funds from your buyer and transfer to you.
