Property auctions can provide the ideal environment in which to buy and sell property.
As part of Countrywide, we have access to the UK's leading property auction houses, selling residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural properties and land by auction, across the UK. We have a team of auction valuers providing local knowledge and expert advice to ensure that your property auction is a success.
We believe that the key to successful property auctioning is to ensure accurate valuations are carried out on each and every property, holding a strong database of active investors and carrying out proactive marketing before, during and after each auction.
Buying at auction
Whether you're looking to buy your first home or you're taking your next step on the property ladder, considering an auction purchase could be a wise move. From one-bed apartments to listed buildings, we have a wide variety of property types included in our sales.
Many properties coming to auction can be more competitively priced than the open market offering a significant opportunity to purchase the property you want at a discount. As well as the potential to save thousands of pounds, the speed at which you can secure your desired property is much faster than that often experienced with a traditional purchase.
Our venues are unintimidating and friendly and provide the ideal environment to purchase a new home.
Selling at auction
Whatever type of property you are looking to sell, a property auction could provide the ideal solution for a quick and simple sale. As well as the potential to bypass the lengthy process of finding a buyer, your transaction will progress at speed and there are no chains.
There are many benefits of an auction property sale, and Countrywide has a fantastic record of helping thousands of satisfied sellers.
