Most of the property sold by auction is vacant, so access for viewing is easy. In some cases, tenants live in the property, viewings may or may not be possible, depending on the relationship between tenant and landlord.
When it comes to selling a property by auction where the owner still lives there, we recommend one of two options to ensure potential buyers get the viewing access they need and to minimise disruption to the occupiers.
One, we can agree with the seller a series of fixed open house viewing days. We will advertise these times and dates and publish them in the auction catalogue and online. Our team will attend the property on each viewing. Viewers are registered and accompanied around the property, giving ample opportunity for the buyer to ask any questions about the Lot being offered and buying at auction.
Open house viewings are a great way for the auctioneers to establish how much interest there is in the house. The homeowner can be present on the viewing or go out for a while.
Two, the homeowner conducts the viewing on a first come first served appointment basis. While convenient and comfortable for the potential buyer – they get to view on their own and at a time and day of their choice. It does cause maximum disruption to the seller.
Most auction properties attract substantial numbers of viewers, far higher than through an estate agent; we regularly show 20-40 people around a typical Lot, and 100 plus viewers aren’t unusual on a desirable lot. That’s the power of auction.
Buyers love buying at auction for the ease, transparency, certainty and security of sale, neither the seller nor the buyer is waiting around for months while lawyers slowly grind through the paperwork, during which all parties risk a chain collapse. One in three open market sales fails to perform. Sale by auction secures an exchange instantly on the fall of the gavel.
