Modern Method of Sale - FAQs

Posted on Tuesday, September 17, 2019


Is my property going to sell?

To maximise the chances of selling through auction you need a motivated and realistic seller, and great marketing exposure. Our marketing strategy will give you the fairest price in the current market for your property. We will discuss the most effective pricing strategy to maximise interest on your property.

Do I have to accept the highest bid?

No, all properties are sold with an undisclosed minimum reserve price (agreed with you). The only price the public see is the starting and actual bids. Once the reserve price has been met and the auction is closed the sale will proceed. A Reservation Fee/Deposit is then taken. If you choose to pay no sales fees, the Reservation Fee will not form part payment of the purchase price but will be paid in addition to cover the costs of the process.

Can I accept bids outside the auction process?

Yes. You can accept a bid before the auction has finished. We are legally obliged to put any bid forward to you. It will then be up to you to decide if you wish to accept it and conclude the auction early.

How quickly will I have to move out?

Depending on which auction option you select this can be decided by you but will generally be between 28 – 56 days.

If the prospective buyer does not agree to pay the fee, will I lose my offer?

If a prospective buyer does not agree to pay the fee, we will advise you accordingly and seek your instructions.
