    Property Auction Department

    'Why sell through the Modern Method of Auction'?

    When thinking about selling your property there are many options out there, but not many methods of sale can offer the following key benefits:

    1 Choose to pay 0% commission on your sale, or choose no sale no fee. Whichever way you look at it we can't be beaten on price

    You can pay no fees whatsoever to sell your property. So the money you're going to save can be spent on something a little more interesting... a holiday perhaps? Under this method we charge the buyer a reservation fee which covers our costs.

    Under the buyer's premium entry we charge the buyer a reservation fee which covers our costs

    Our second more traditional option is where the seller pays a sales fee, to sell the property on a no-sale no-fee basis at the end of the transaction to cover the auctions costs. We provide both options so that you can choose an option that suits your individual needs. However, through either option if your property doesn't sell it won't cost you a penny, reducing the risks of selling through auction considerably.

    2 A fixed date to move and sell

    Upon the close of the auction your buyer will be tied into a fixed timescale for exchange and completion. This provides complete clarity for both parties. A fixed timescale is not often set when selling a property through the normal estate agency route with many sales taking much longer than anticipated. This added security is a big benefit to any vendor looking to move forward with confidence!

    3 The benefit of a non-refundable reservation fee or deposit paid up-front from the buyer

    Upon the close of the auction the buyer of your property will pay a non-refundable reservation fee or deposit calculated against the final selling price. In most instances the buyer will be required to pay a reservation fee rather than a deposit. If the property is subject to a deposit rather than a reservation fee it will be clearly stated. As this will be paid on a non-refundable basis, you know that your buyer is serious and in a proceedable position. This cuts out any time wasters and provides security so you can move forward in confidence.

    4 The best price in the current market

    Think about how an owner of a piece of fine art maximises its value? They sell at auction! Due to the increased marketing and unique pricing strategy that we operate, we guarantee to get you the best price in the current market for your property. A property will always sell for what it's worth, plus you have a reserve price so you know it won't sell for anything less than that chosen figure.

    Frequently asked questions

    Q. Is my property going to sell?

    Q. What's the difference between the online auction and the auction event?

    Q. How do you get paid if I choose to sell my house for free?

    Q. Do I have to accept the highest bid for the property?

    Q. Can I accept bids outside the auction process?

    Q. Is the bid binding?

    Q. How quickly will I have to move out?

    Q. Is my property going to sell?

    A. There are two components needed to maximise the chances of a sale through auction: firstly, a motivated and realistic seller, and secondly, great marketing exposure. Our marketing and unique pricing strategy will guarantee you the best price in the current market for your property. If you decide to explore the auction route further, a member of our auction department will discuss with you the best pricing strategy to maximise interest on your property. If you would like to discuss the auction route further please don't hesitate to contact a member of the auction department on 0845 5193 126 to discuss in greater detail.

    Q. What's the difference between the online auction and the auction event?

    A. We hold auction events at specific times throughout the year. We also offer online auctions which run in tandem with the auction events. Simply we offer our clients an auction service 24/7! The online auction system works like ebay. Properties are usually listed on the site for 30 days and at any point during this time a bid can be placed on a property. You can tell how much time is remaining on a specific auction as it is clearly stated in the auction countdown displayed against each property. All properties will start out life on the online auction system and many will sell long before the auction event. However, our aim is to obtain the best possible purchase price in shortest space of time.

    Q. How do you get paid if I choose to sell my house for free?

    A. If you choose to pay no fees, we charge the buyer a fee when a transaction is completed; this is called a reservation fee. It is calculated against the final selling price of the property once an auction is completed and the reserve is met. The reservation fee acts as a deposit to create greater security until exchange of contracts takes place.

    Q. Do I have to accept the highest bid for the property?

    A. No, all properties are sold with an undisclosed minimum reserve price (agreed with the seller). The only prices the public see are the starting and actual bids. The reserve price remains confidential. Once the reserve price has been met and the auction is closed, the sale will go through. A reservation fee or deposit is then taken. If you choose to pay no fees the reservation that we take will not form part payment of the purchase price.

    Q. Can I accept bids outside the auction process?

    A. Yes, you can accept a bid to sell the property before the online auction has finished or before the auction event. By law we are duty bound to put any offer for the property forward to you. It will then be up to you to decide if you want to consider the offer and take the property out of the auction early. However in a scenario where this happens the reservation fee or deposit will still be payable by the buyer and the terms and conditions of the auction still apply.

    Q. Is the bid binding?

    A. This is the Modern Method of Auction, the bid obliges the buyer to pay a reservation fee or deposit and sign the reservation form. If they are the highest bidder it does not bind the buyer to buy the property. Instead, it allows them to reserve the right to exclusively exchange contracts on the property at an agreed price within 28 days of the bid being accepted.

    Q. How quickly will I have to move out?

    A. We use the Modern Method of Auction, which means that when the auction closes the winning bidder has 28 days to exchange contracts and a further 28 days to complete the purchase. This additional time over the traditional method of auction makes it more appealing to purchasers buying with finance or a mortgage because there is more time to get the necessary paper work in place and completed.

    "Many of the people I meet through my business love the water, whether it's because they go sailing, walk on the beaches, observe wildlife close to the shore, or take a regular dip.

    "This means that many of my current and potential clients may one day have to call on the RNLI's services and, even if they don't, many are ardent supporters".

      Providing a professional and personal service

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Enthusiastic approach to finding buyers
      Professional and courteous approach. Genuine personal touch not offered by other agents. Enthusiastic approach to finding buyers, persistent and determined when dealing with difficult situations of which there were many in our move. Would we consider using Town & Country again? Yes absolutely.
    • Seller Testimonial

      proper business manner
      This was a diifircult sale for us because it was our family home for over 50 years and had to be sold after our father died; T & C were excellant- Colin saw the house and was knowledgable and enthusiastic, mentioning good ideas about the house in regards to potential and selling points; a realistic asking price was agreed and an 'open'day was set up to attract buyers. From that, our buyer was found and the whole process has been relatively straightforward. Hilary has kept us up to date on the various stages of the sale, and we would recommend T & C ,not only for the way they managed to sell the house, but that they did it in the proper business manner.
    • Seller Testimonial

      courteous, professional and instructive
      The team at Havant Road Drayton were courteous, professional and instructive at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending anybody to use them as I most definitely will be for any future sales. Issues that arose during the sale process were soon overcome by Sarah taking the initiative and liasing with all parties involved to reach an outcome that everyone accepted.
    • Seller Testimonial

      certainly recommend using this estate agent
      We were very pleased with the service given to us by everyone at Town and Country Southern. All staff were professional, helpful and did everything they could to sell our house. We were particularly pleased with the amount of advertising used to sell our house (they didn't just rely on Rightmove as some other agents do). I would certainly recommend using this estate agent to anyone looking to sell their house. Hilary had a really good manner with potential buyers when conducting viewings which I am sure helped to sell our house. Colin was very knowledgeable about the market and his office delivered everything that he promised us when he took us on as clients.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Friendly and helpful
      We went with this estate agent because they not only advertise in the local paper but are aso on the internet and have magazine adverts too.Friendly and helpful with a proffessional attitude.Would recommend highly.
    • Seller Testimonial

      thoroughly recommend Town & Country Southern
      If you are trying to decide which agent to use, then we would thoroughly recommend Town & Country Southern, they were fantastic. Our property had been marketed through various agents over the course of a couple of years, and Town & Country, after a friends recommendation, were our last effort. During our first conversation with Hilary, she told us Colin would be "the one" to sell our house, and true to her word within 7 weeks our house was sold and we we on our way to a new life abroad! The team, and in particular Hilary are everything Estate Agents should be - professional, proactive, honest and reliable. Do not waste your time using anyone else, without Town & Country we would still be in our house in the UK, now thanks to them we are living the dream.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I would not hesitate recommending their services
      After having had disappointing results with another estate agent I put my property on the market with Town & Country feeling rather despondent about the property market. Well what a breath of fresh air they were. Colin provided sound marketing advice and Hilary performed superbly in her sales role taking her time to familiarise herself with my home so that she could knowledgably show it to prospective purchasers. They had a steady flow of interested buyers which resulted in an excellent offer and contracts were exchanged this week. They were a pleasure to deal with keeping me fully informed at all times. I would not hesitate in recommending their services.
    • Seller Testimonial

      solid buyer found within two days of marketing
      After an excellent start and a solid buyer found within two days of marketing the property, everything appeared to be running very smoothly. Sarah kept me well-informed and everything was progressing well. We hit an obstacle a few days before we had intended to exchange, Sarah was extremely proactive and supportive during this difficult time. She made numerous phone calls to all parties and was extremely helpful with both advice, suggestions and actions. We worked through the issues and happily are soon to complete. Sarah has at all times been professional, supportive and always maintained good contact. Well done! Good work by Colin and his team.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Could not recommend them enough
      Could not recommend them enough, fantastic from start to finish regarding my property sale. Communication was great, Sarah always knew what was happening during the process of the sale and always kept me informed. Sarah even went to the extreme of providing me with my utility meter readings when the sale went through as I was not in the UK. I am also using them again to source a rental property for me. I would hightly recommend this firm of estate agents as they are professional in every manner, thank you.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Their professionalism was superb
      Very helpful, have given us all the guidance needed, viewing made very easy. The whole process of selling are house was made so easy and simple, would definitely recommend them. Their professionalism was superb
    • Seller Testimonial

      showed more interest than the others
      Colin Shairp viewed the house, as well as staff from other estate agent companies. We thought that Colin was the most professional and showed more interest than the others which is why we decided to go with Town and Country Southern. After this we have always been able to deal directly with Hilary Landey. Nothing has been too much trouble and Hilary has shown much patience with our enquiries. All the time we were confident that we were with a very good estate agent and Hilary is a credit to Town and Country Southern. So it is full marks
    • Seller Testimonial

      reputable and reliable agent

      We chose Town & Country Southern to sell our property because we wanted someone who can provide a reliable and personal service. Anyone who has been in a property chain will understand the stress it may cause and through our past experience, we don't want a big chain agent or someone who is only interested in the commission at the end of the sell. As we don't live in the area choosing a reputable and reliable agent is the most important first step. Colin is very professional and knowledgeable about the market and they use more advertising tools than many other agents.
      Sarah has been very professional in handling the sale of our property and she has kept us informed through every step of the process. She has been excellent throughout and we can honestly say that without her we won't be so calm this time round! 
      We will definitely recommend Town & Country Southern to anyone who wants a personal, professional first class service, no matter if you are buying or selling."

    • Buyer Testimonial

      excellent customer service
      After an 18 month wait we finally moved into our new property. We would like to thank the excellent customer service provided by Town and Country. Hilary did everything possible to ensure our purchase went as smooth as possible. She was in regular contact with us keeping us updated, giving the feeling of a personal relationship, as opposed to just being another customer. We would like to thank Hilary personally and would certainly recommend her and the company in the future.

      very supportive and extremely helpful
      Sarah was an absolute star. She went above and beyond to ensure the sale progressed. The experience of buying and selling has been very stressful, Sarah has been very supportive and extremely helpful. She kept us informed and worked really hard to progress things. Sarah spent a great deal of time trying to obtain information for my solicitor and communicated with all the solicitors and agents involved. we would not be at this stage if it was not for Sarah. very professional, very helpful and very friendly.
      A very big thank you :-)

Excellent service and a lovely girl.
