Considering selling your property at auction? Here are some common questions you may like answers for.

Why auction?

Three reasons: Maximum price, speed and security.

Will I get full price for my property?

Yes. Selling at auction always means you will get the true value of any property. Yes the buyer is paying your fees but that does NOT mean you will get less for your property, you are simply saving a sales fee.

What properties are sold at auction?

Everything and anything. We have sold terraced, bungalows, unique properties, family detached houses, penthouse apartments, commercial units, businesses, new build properties and plots on behalf of builders.

Can I control the selling price?

Yes, you have complete control when setting the reserve price

Who buys at auction?

Everyone and anyone can, especially with our innovative ‘Conditional Auction.’ This has been devised to aim specifically at the residential buyers who may require a mortgage, so we do not aim solely for cash buyers. We do not exclude any buyer who is in a proceedable position.

What is the probability of selling?

You can NEVER under sell at auction. The trick is setting an aggressive start bid to generate multiple viewings over a set time span. Then, at auction, purchasers bid against each other either in person by proxy, phone, or internet.

Why do people sell at auction?

Because of job relocation, emigration, matrimonial issues, death, outgrown the house, or simple frustration with the open market. Selling at auction maximises your price and offers speed and security. Anyone and everyone can sell at auction.

Who are your clients?

Anyone who wants to reach the largest audience in the shortest time to achieve the best price. Vacant property rates make commercial property a significant source of business now.

How is price determined?

By agreement with the seller, a reserve is set which can be altered only with the seller’s consent.

How do you arrange viewings?

We will make arrangements with local agents for access if necessary or conduct open days and viewings ourselves, as every property and vendor is different and should be treated as such.

How will you advertise my property?

We advertise on the property portal Daft.ie reaching a wide audience of buyers. All properties are marketed on our website and our registered buyers receive regular alerts. Our property experts will discuss local marketing campaigns at the appointment.

Is there a cooling off period?

No – when you sign the agreement you agree to us marketing the property straight away.

How do I proceed?

Easy – Simply call your nearest Town & Country Office.
