Another Successful Auction

Auction 5th December 2013 - 1pm

Thompson Wilson are pleased to confirm that all NINE lots were sold at our December auction.  One sold prior to the auction and the other 8 were sold under the hammer on the day.  A fantastic 100% record for this auction which equates to over £1.8M worth of sales.

Interest in the room was high with well over 120 people eager to bid. Most lots sold above their guide price with Lot 2 achieving a staggering £52K above the guide price.  The four properties in Benjamin Road were also popular with both investors and home buyers making purchases.

Our December 11th auction was another success and despite the cold weather there was a crowd of at least 70 bidders. We managed to sell 3 of the 6 lots and with much interest in the unsold properties, we are hopefull of finalising these before Christmas. 

This equates to over £3M worth of property sold at auction this year, and with a number of property owners already enquiring about our next auction, we are looking forward to a great 2013.

Buying & Selling at Auction

Over recent years, buying properties at Auction has become a more popular method of purchase.  The main advantages for buyers are certainty, control and transparency.   As a purchaser you are in control deciding when to bid and how high or low you wish to go. A purchaser is able to buy the property at a price that was achieved competitively against other bidders in the transparent process, and if your bid is successful then the property is yours on completion, the vendor cannot withdraw.   Secondly, it is possible to buy properties quickly.  If you are well organised, properly advised and have the requisite financial resources, you can exchange contracts in a matter of days.

If the Auctioneer is following RICS common auction conditions completion will be 20 working days after the auction.

You may find properties are on offer with attractive low guide prices, although the eventual sale price will be determined by the level of competition in the room. 

The advantages of selling at auction are:-

1. Firstly, certainty, properties are not sold on a, subject to contract, basis in the same way as happens via a traditional estate agency method of sale.

The successful bidder is legally obliged to complete the sale once the gavel falls.

2. Secondly, there is good marketing exposure as our auctions are well advertised in the local and trade press.

3. Thirdly, a good sale price.   With a set guide price property should achieve the best possible marketing price and also the speed.

The sale is relatively quick and completion will usually take place 20 working days after the auction.
