Humberts is making the property auction experience open to everyone. It’s a quick, efficient and transparent way of finding your next home or selling a property you currently own.
An auction can form an exciting part of your property journey, whether you are a buyer or a seller. With much of the legalities and paperwork concluded before the auction or on the day itself, it’s a great way to shorten the transactional process.
Explaining how an auction differs from the open market
Buying or selling a property at auction is quite different to the open market - everything happens very quickly, including paying the deposit and the exchange. Our commitment to you is to clearly explain these differences so you can make an informed decision as to whether an auction is the right method for of sale for your property.
Selling a property at an auction
Auctions are a great route if you need speed behind your property sale. A valuation is a must and Humberts will tailor this with the auction room in mind, especially if you want to leave having concluded a sale. Contracts are exchanged when the hammer falls and you can expect completion within 28 days.
Buying a property at an auction
Anyone looking to buy a property can attend an auction or they can make a bid before the event takes place, based on catalogue details and a property viewing. We’ll make sure you have advance access to any property you’re interested in and that you know the etiquette, so you enter the auction room with confidence. And don’t worry, you won’t make a bid on a property by scratching your nose.
