Selling at auction

 
 
 
 

Sell your property using the modern method of auction

By using our modern method of property auction, we allow our customers to sell their properties quickly, for the maximum market price and without having to pay any agency fees.

For some sellers their initial reaction to auction is that 'it's only for desperate people' or 'I'm not giving my house away' or 'it's only for run down properties.' The truth is that auction offers a secure method of selling a property, providing a platform for exposure whilst you retain control of the process.

All properties are sold subject to a reserve price. Your property won't sell for less than your agreed amount meaning you are in control of the price you accept.

 

 

Our guide to selling at auction

All properties are sold subject to a reserve price. Your property won't sell for less than your agreed amount meaning you are in control of the price you accept.

With over 25 years of auction experience and an expansive partner agent network we can ensure maximum exposure on a national scale for your property.

Selling your property at auction offers a host of benefits that are not available to you when selling using traditional methods. Read through this guide to discover the advantages of selling at auction.

A reserve price is agreed on your property, this is the lowest figure you would accept and we cannot sell the property for anything less than that amount.

A starting bid is set, your property will be entered into our next auction and will be advertised in the catalogue or entered into our 'online auction' with a fixed end date.

Buyers can view the property before the auction date and we encourage them to do so, as on the fall of the hammer they are committed to purchasing your property.

You will be kept updated with feedback from viewings and offers prior to the auction. If you are selling unconditionally your solicitor will produce a legal pack with all the information a buyer will need to exchange contracts.

The property goes to the auction room and will sell for the highest bid above the reserve. We take the reservation fee and deposit from the buyer and pass their details and the paperwork to your solicitors to complete the transaction.

No estate agency or auction fees

You have the option to sell without any auction or estate agency fees. An additional reservation fee is collected by us on agreeing the sale, giving you the full auction advertising and marketing without any costs to you.

Security

Once the sale is agreed, the buyer immediately pays a deposit, meaning the sale is highly likely to succeed - fewer than 1% of our sales fall through

Fast, fixed, timescales

The buyer must complete within 28 or 56 days, meaning your property gets sold fast.

Complete flexibility

The sales process is quick and hassle-free; we do the legwork, get your property sold and take the stress out of your property sale.

What our clients say about us

  • " Jezzards managed to let my property within four day's of commencement of marketing activity. I found both Sam and Tiernan to be proactive, professional and approachable, and the impression I have garnered is that one will be in good hands with this company. These are the first agents I have used that employ professional photographers, which I found impressive and is in itself symbolic. In short, so far so good. "

    Gideon, Feltham April 2018
  • " I was provided a thoroughly professional service throughout, kept up to date and consulted on every aspect of the marketing of the property, the viewings and feedback, the offers and all the way through to the sale of the house itself. I found everyone I dealt with to be friendly, courteous and highly professional including Tiernan and Abigail who were active in the sale and especially Lowen who was always an absolute pleasure to talk to and who did a fantastic job on securing the sale on the house at a price I was very happy with. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jezzards and was extremely thankful to them for dealing with everything so well in what was a difficult time personally. "

Their advertising is of very good quality and it includes the virtual tour which is an excellent addition to the photos and the floor plan. The whole process was very smooth and I was being kept informed and updated on a regular basis. I would highly recommend Jezzards to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. Their professional attitude, friendliness, very personal and attentive approach together with a great knowledge of the market makes them one of the best agents I’ve ever dealt with. "
