When you are unable to attend an auction there’s no need to run the risk of missing out on your dream home. We can assist by accepting your bids via telephone so you are still in touch with the live auction, but first you must register your interest by signing our telephone bidding authority which will in turn be approved by the owner of the property.
Ask your agent to send you our ‘buying at auction by telephone’ video which will give you some tips on how to be the successful purchaser by phone. Having a pre-determined bidding strategy will go a long way to overcoming the disadvantage of not being able to attend the auction to see what your competitors are doing. You will be able to participate in the auction in the same manner as being in attendance by staggering your clear instructions to your agent which will then allow them to participate on your behalf in a timely manner whilst keeping you informed of what is happening during proceedings.
If the auction goes past what you are prepared to pay you’ve lost nothing, but being secretive about your bidding strategy may lose you the opportunity to purchase.
