Auction

Compass are now members of ‘Auction House UK’ the country’s largest and fastest growing auctioneers group, we can offer clients this service in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire

There are many benefits selling by auction including:-

  • The fall of the hammer constitutes a legally binding contract, which is formalised by a signature on the Memorandum of Sale, which forms part of the catalogue.
  • The sale is conducted in a very public way, and thus is the best way to ensure a particular property has been properly promoted and sold at the best price. 
  • The auction provides definitive dates to work to, with a completion date usually set for 28 days after the auction. This may be particularly useful where the vendor is depending on the sale proceeds and it also concentrates the competition for the property.

For further information or to discuss a possible sale by auction – contact David Donnelly on 01234 351577.
