OUR PROPERTY AUCTION SERVICES

No other auction provider in the UK & Ireland offers such a complete and comprehensive range of property auction services for estate agents to offer to their buyers and sellers. Together, we hold both live and online auction events nationwide, working in partnership with over 1100 estate agent branches, providing local knowledge and expertise.

 

The Traditional Method of Auction

This is a tried and tested method associated mainly with selling and buying investment stock due to more restrictive timeframes to exchange contracts and complete the sale. This limits buyers and the interest and activity around residential properties.

 

The Modern Method of Auction

This more accessible route, creates a transparent platform for buyers and sellers combining the best aspects of traditional auction and private treaty sales. We offer more realistic yet fixed timescales, opening up the market place for buyers and sellers looking to arrange mortgages as their method of payment. The exchange of contracts has 28 days to take place from the solicitors receipt of draft contracts, whereas with traditional auctions, the exchange of contracts will usually take place as soon as the buyer has won the bid.

The Modern Method of Auction opens the auction market (once reserved for the professional investor or cash-ready buyer) up to residential buyers, creating a larger market place and more interest and activity than traditional auction. It is the preferred route for buying and selling via auction and has changed the perception of auction in the last decade. 

This simple way to buy a house is a breath of fresh air. We could not recommend highly enough. 56 days start to finish!

ABOUT US

There is more to estate agency than simply erecting a for sale sign in a garden and taking a photograph.

From initial marketing advice, property valuation, photography, outstanding property promotion the team at Williams Estates strive to be the best they can be.

Negotiating the best price for your property can be an art which comes over time with experience. a skilled sales negotiator can achieve that little bit more for your property which can more than cover the little extra fee paid for our traditional service over an out of town online only agency. A house purchase is a big deal and most buyers feel confidence and security from sitting across a desk talking to a pleasant sales person.

The work does not finish when a buyer is found. We are kept busy with surveyors, solicitors, and conveyancers, liaising between all parties concerned, nipping potential problems in the bud before they become a problem.

Return viewings to measure up, showing the family the new home, obtaining quotes for items picked up on survey, we do all of this with a friendly smile. The internet cannot do the same. All this work with no sale no fee, no cost incurred by the customer if the property fails to sell!
