    The Selling Process...

    Our Land and Property Auctions involve a short intense marketing campaign with a realistic price guide which we aim to exceed. We have seven or more collective auctions a year and a specific auction catalogue is produced for each one.

    The marketing campaign varies for each lot but usually takes place over a four to six week period and includes local and regional newspaper advertising, extensive online marketing as well as regular mailing to our extensive database of prospective buyers. Towards the end of the campaign a full Legal Pack is made available to prospective purchasers electronically.

    Viewings take place usually in blocks depending on the property, and these dates are published widely. The auction itself is always an exciting conclusion to a busy marketing campaign and will often result in competitive bidding between experienced auction goers and first time novices.

    The auction process really is a tried and tested way of achieving the best result within a specific timespan to certain properties.

    How To Bid in Online Auction

    Bidding in our online auction is safe and easy, you shouldn't be nervous or anxious about it. We try very hard to make the process intuitive and simple to follow, so don't worry about "accidentally" buying as our process is robust. Our online auctions are safe and secure and you have peace of mind that you are transacting via a platform operated by the UK's no.1 property auctioneer.

    Ways to bid in our online auction:
    Live Online Bidding

    As a potential buyer you will have completed our Passport to bid. You will not be able to register a bid until you have completed your Passport to Bid.

    • Registration - During the process of obtaining your Passport to Bid you will be required to agree to our Terms and Conditions, provide a valid email address and mobile phone number both of which will require verification.
    • Property Information - Interested buyers can, when available, download free of charge an Auction Pack for the property they wish to bid on. This pack contains Title Entries, Personal Local Search and Water & Drainage Search. If the property is leasehold and or tenanted then a copy of these agreements will be available for inspection upon request.
    • Viewing - Each property has a programmed schedule of Open House viewing sessions over the three week marketing period, these viewing sessions provide the opportunity to turn up and view without prior appointment.
    • Bidding - The period of bidding will be typically 7 days following a 14 day period of marketing, after which the timed auction will close providing 60 second extensions, allowing final bidding, until highest bid stands uncontested.
    By Online Proxy

    Proxy bidding is used when you wish to pre-submit your highest offer to purchase.

    • Bidding is regulated automatically within the auction platform and the system will provide notice if your proxy has met the reserve price

    • Introduction

      Sale of 1 Adelaide Street, Camborne on 28/10/15
      image cannot be displayed

      Dear Adam,

      Thank you for your advice and guidance on the sale of 1 Adelaide Street last month.

      After trying to sell for over 12 months I was looking for the certainty that an auction can give but I didn't expect to also get such a good price. Your regular updates with the statistics about viewings and legal packs kept me fully informed and your cheery calls and management of the entire process certainly helped reduce the stress of the sale.
      I will certainly recommend your services to colleagues and friends looking to sell at auction and would be happy for you to use this as a general reference and recommendation on your website.
      Yours sincerely

      Will Hamilton


    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Dear Adam

      Happy New Year and I wish you a successful new season.

      Grace and I want to express our sincere gratitude for all the hard work you squeezed into less than a handful of weeks which led to the sale of Clamberdown.

       We are delighted with the outcome and are looking forward to our new project. We wish the new owners well and hope that they enjoy the property as much as our family have over the last 8 or 9 years. I have been buying and selling property in this country for 45 years, as well as other dealings and transactions one has over a lifetime; I can honestly say that I have rarely enjoyed or been impressed by the proffessionalism, efficiency and cheerful courtesy that I have received from you.

      My only regret is that I am not a property dealer so that I can continue a permanent working relationship with you. You have changed my mind about selling property by auction and removed the fear of not achieving the desired price. I have found the process to be swift, efficient and totally painless.

      Yours sincerely,

      Naurooz Ismail
