Auctions to re-start as Government ease restrictions
Our auction team have welcomed the news that the Government have given the green light for property sales and rentals to reopen as of today. This follows the Prime Ministers announcement on Sunday evening about the easing of restrictions as he aims to slowly re-start the economy.
Previous restrictions on travel for “non-essential purposes” stopped all agents and auctioneers from being able to undertake property inspections, viewings and other activities and we felt it was in the best interest of achieving positive results for our valued clients that they delayed selling their property, if they were in a position to do so.
The change in legislation will allow us to undertake market appraisals, viewings, take high quality photographs and 360 degree videos tours to show your property in the best light and for surveyors to inspect the property to assist with mortgages/raising finance (if required).
This means we can now offer our full marketing campaign and allow prospective purchasers to undertake their usual due diligence, meaning we can achieve the best result possible, on your behalf.
The next auction will take place on Wednesday 24th June, and it will be live streamed via our website. We have between 2,000-3,000 people attend each of our auctions so for obvious reasons our traditional in-room auctions will not be able to go ahead.
Instead we will hold a remote bidding auction, where the auction is still held on a set time and date, with a number of properties being offered on the same day. Potential purchasers register before the auction which allows them to place a proxy bid (the auctioneer bids on their behalf up to their maximum amount), by phone (they bid over the phone via a member of our team) or on the internet (via a secure area on our website). We already offer these services at our in-room auctions, so they are all tried and trusted ways of bidding, in fact we had 850 remote bidders register for our 27th February 2020 auction, so we know it works.
If you are looking for a fast, secure and hassle-free sale with an immediate exchange of contracts and fixed completion date, then why not sell with Midlands’ number 1 auctioneers. Our team are available to offer their free and impartial advice, and being the only Auctioneers in the Midlands with dedicated specialists in residential and commercial properties and land/development sites, we are best placed to give you tailored advice to suit your needs.
We can offer social distance valuations of any empty properties or virtual valuations if access is not possible or if the property is occupied and you would prefer that we did not enter.
Whichever the case, you can rest assured that the health and safety of our staff, clients and associates will always be our highest priority. We will continue to follow the latest Government guidelines, and we are equipped with face masks, latex gloves, hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes to ensure there is no cross-contamination of any surfaces or door handles etc.
