Auction Properties London

Selling your property through an auction can be confusing or challenging to someone who has never done it before. If you’re putting your London property up for auction for the first time, you may even think that it’s only a matter of time before a buyer picks it up.

However, this is not always the case. Unsold auction properties in London are not uncommon. These are properties that did not meet their reserve price at auction and are withdrawn.

Figuring out the reasons that prevent your listing from convincing buyers to get it can help you make the proper adjustments to make it more successful on the market.

Check Your Home’s Auction Reserve Price

If you’re selling your first home, it can be easy to overestimate your price for it. You’ve made memories there, and your emotional attachment to it may affect how you value your property.

Overestimating your home’s property value may affect its outlook on the auction market. To avoid this, compare your pricing to those of similar listings to make sure that your property is not overpriced. A better option would be to reach out to us at The Property Auctioneers for help with valuation.

Sort Out Your Property’s Legal Documentation

Another problem that affects your property’s value is the lack of a legal pack. Buyers are hesitant to bid on a listing that doesn’t have documentation as it means the seller is hiding crucial information about the property.

Giving buyers the opportunity to check your property with their lawyers prove that you’re not hiding anything from them. Providing proper documentation can go a long way in providing prospective buyers peace of mind about your home.

Prepare Your Home for Auction

Another significant cause of unsold property auction lots in London is the lack of preparation on the sellers’ part. Not allowing your property to be viewed by prospective sellers hurts your chances of getting a fair price on the auction market.

Take the proper steps to ensure that auctioneers can view your property. Opening your home to prospective buyers can do a lot of the selling for you if done right, so prepare your home for viewing by staging it. You should also consider allowing virtual viewings of your property.
