Sell property at auction Yorkshire

What are the benefits of selling your property at auction?

Property Auction Leeds | Selling your property at auction is becoming increasingly popular. At auction there is good demand for properties and it can lead to the price being driven up.

Once the hammer falls at auction the contracts are exchanged and the sale becomes legally binding. The purchaser must then put down a non-refundable 10% deposit and complete the sale by paying the balance within 28 days. This avoids the uncertainty which is associated with selling your home in the conventional manner, cutting out the risks of survey reports, gazundering and the buyer pulling out.

Why sell at auction?

All property types are suitable for sale at auction from properties which are run down, to properties which are unique and which agents find difficult to value. Properties that are run down can achieve a much better price at auction as auctions tend to attract buyers specifically looking for renovation projects.

It may be that you are struggling to sell your property due to legal complications or issues with the property. Auction takes away the uncertainty as once the sale is agreed the contracts are exchanged.

Another reason may be that you are looking for a quick sale, you may be moving abroad or looking to stop repossession proceedings.
