At JW Wood we recognise every client has different motivations for selling and that the emphasis they place on the speed of the sale, selling price and service can vary widely,” says director Adrian Siddall.
“Every property is unique and its own individual selling points are not just down to the quality of fittings and decoration, but include a massive range of other features such as gardens, location and school catchment areas.
“Many people dismiss the idea of selling or buying at auction because they feel their property “is not the right kind of property” for auction or that they can’t arrange funding in time to buy. I have also found a distrust of the process and the fear that a property will be sold too cheaply.
“In reality, the auction method of sale is extremely straightforward and the sale price is always right, because you set the reserve price, which is the minimum price at which you are prepared to sell. This is often greatly exceeded and the many testimonials we have received show that prices achieved even surprise our delighted clients.
“The days of auctions being used only for cheap, run-down properties are long gone – there has been a massive growth in sales of quality residential family homes.
“Thousands of sellers have benefited from the auction method of sale, even major national house builders including Bellway Homes and Persimmon Homes use it!
“Our partner company – The Agents Property Auction – holds monthly auction at The Marriott Hotel in Gosforth Park. This month’s auction features 128 properties ranging in price from £15,000 to £360,000, so there is something to suit every kind of buyer or investor.
“Selling via auction offers a quick, simple and straightforward method of selling quickly, at the best price possible and with the benefit of a non-refundable buyer’s deposit.
“Of course, the first step is to talk to us to get professional advice as to whether an auction may be right for you.
“If you’ve always kept the idea of selling via auction at arm’s length, it’s may be worth taking a second look.
