Spring selling means auctions and lots of them. To help you out we have listed everything you need to know come Auction time.

Buying a home at auction. What you need to know. 

  • To be able to bid at auction you will need to register prior to the auction commencing. You will be asked to give your name, address and show proof of identity.
  • If you are bidding on behalf of another person, you must provide a letter of authority stating you are authorised to bid on their behalf.
  • An auctioneer cannot take a bid from someone who is not registered.
  • Organise your own pest and building inspection prior to the auction of the property.
  • Get your finances in order before the auction. Know exactly how much you can spend.
  • If successful on the day, you will need to pay a 10% deposit.
  • On the fall of the hammer, if you are the highest bidder you must sign the contract.
  • There is no cooling off period.
  • It is worth attending as many as possible until you feel comfortable with the process and understand how it works.
