Auctions

An auction is a way to gain a quick sale but that isn’t all there is for an auction; it also provides you with a good amount of security. One of the securities is that once an offer has been placed by someone that offer will stay, they can’t back out or try to lower it etc. Another security is the reserve price if an offer is placed and it doesn’t match or go above the reserve price then the property will not be sold, allowing you to not make a loss on your property. However, there is always the chance to buy a property for a bargain. Open House Bolton wishes to provide those same advantages through its auctions, we will do this through the two auction methods:

Traditional Auction

The Properties for sale in a traditional auction can be found advertised in newspapers, through estate agents, auctioneers and online. They are conducted auction house in person. These traditional auctions key components for their advantages.
The winner of the auction has a legal commitment to purchase the property, the buyer is NOT allowed to pull out and is required to pay a 10% deposit whilst exchanging the contracts with the seller on that same day. This provides the seller more security on their sale. The main benefit of this type of auction is the speed of the sale, provided that the property had a successful bid, the sales of these properties is always guaranteed to be completed within 28 days since the deposit. Most of the bidders on these auctions are cash buyers.
The downside is that it costs a substantial prior cost, without any guarantee of a successful bid, buyers must pay for any valuations and preliminary legal fees which are required in order to be able to exchange contracts on the day of the auction. Whilst this does eliminate anyone who is not a serious buyer, it can be a huge waste of money if you are outbid.

Modern Auction

Modern auctions are carried out online, providing everything you would expect in an auction with an eBay like the style of bidding. They have three key components for their advantages.

Unlike the Traditional auction, the modern auction provides the buy with double the amount of days, from 28 to 56 to purchase the property. This time frame allows the buyer to get a mortgage is they are reliant on that; this also allows more property buyers to big and doesn’t only rely mainly on the cash buyers. The bidding environment is also more flexible as the bidders do not need to be at a specific time or place and can access the bid from their own comfort while providing a 5% purchase price if successful.

The downside is that the contract can be exchanged within the time frame of 28 days, and due to this the buyer can pull out of the sale as they are under no legal obligation to complete the purchase.
