Traditional Method of Auction (instant exchange)

This is the method of auction you will probably think of when you hear the word ‘auction’ with exchange happening on the fall of the hammer and completion following within 28 days. This process has been modernised by putting the process online allowing people to bid from the comfort of their own homes, taking away the anxiety and pressure that often comes with auction room sales. With the process being online it opens the market up to a wider range of buyers who may have otherwise not been able to make it to an auction room.

At the end of the auction the winning bidder will be bound the auction terms and the Buyers Premium will be paid.

Modern Method of Auction (28 days to exchange)

This works in the same way as the traditional auction whereby the auction takes place online, however the property does not exchange on the fall of the hammer. Instead, the winning bidder agrees to enter into an exclusivity agreement which grants the winner 28 days in which to exchange. This method of sale opens the auction market up to properties that may not have been suitable for traditional auction as motivated mortgage buyers will have time to raise finance on the property.

The benefit of this method is that you are not narrowing your market to predominantly ‘cash buyers’, as with traditional auctions. At the end of the auction the winning bidder will be bound by the auction terms and the Buyers Premium will be paid.
