Modern Method

Our auction property specialists offer an alternative solution if you are looking for speed and security; and with our more flexible Modern Method of Auction (MMoA), it is becoming an increasingly popular way to buy and sell property for the benefits it offers:

Benefits of selling at Auction:

  • Speed with fixed timescales of 56 days to complete – move forward with confidence and plan your move easily.
  • Security – less chance of a sale falling through with a 95% completion rate, as all parties are committed to the sale.
  • Optimised Interest - with an auction pricing strategy and marketing. More interest encourages competitive bidding, which can drive up the final selling price of your property.
  • No commission – No agent commission to pay when your property sells.
  • No Sale, no Fee! - There is nothing to pay to enter your property into one of our auctions. There is an auction pack of £445.00 including VAT, however, this is only payable by you if your property sells.

To learn more about the benefits of selling at auction, check out our 'Auction Selling Guide'.

Benefits of buying at auction:

  • Speed with fixed timescales from completion – move forward with confidence and plan your move easily.
  • Transparency – All auction properties come with detailed information including title documents, searches and EPC so you can make an informed decision before placing a bid, you can also view the property just as you would normally.
  • Security – less chance of a sale falling through with a 95% completion rate as all parties are committed to the sale.
  • Buy with a mortgage – because Modern Method of Auction offers extended timescales vs. Traditional Method of Auction it is possible to purchase with a Mortgage.
  • Convenience - Buy online from the comfort of your own home with our secure online platform, available 24/7 for complete convenience.
