Modern Auction Experts


Times have changed and so has the Auction!

It's often the preferred route to selling quickly, with no estate agency fees and the peace of mind of a secure, easier process. There are circumstances in life where the security of a quick sale or a fixed timescale for Completion is required. Our modern method of auction offers a fresh new approach to the auction process by welcoming the more traditional types of buyer, rather than just cash investors. All offers up to the close of auction will be completely visible and transparency is assured. With up to 56 days to Exchange and Completion after the winning bid has met or exceeded a reserve (as in many cases), the buyer will secure their commitment with a reservation fee *1. The buyer and seller will now be committed into an agreement making the process secure, quick and free from renegotiation or gazumping and is a service not just limited to cash buyers. Buyers can learn more by contacting our dedicated Auction website through our Intelligent Auction Management partners.

Let us take care of your Unique Property Sale


Selling through our Modern Property Auction could be compared to selling a piece of fine art or a classic car - with some modern differences. No longer are modern property auctions totally associated with just distressed sales or dilapidated buildings with just cash investors. In this process the auction is tailored to the individual property, together with the sellers requirements on time frame. The great news is the seller has Zero (0%)*2 fee to pay. However, a sellers pack will be required in advance of the auction and is available with ‘No sale, No cost’ options through our specialist auction service ‘in house’ lawyers. Sellers packs can also be arranged through your own legal representatives, at your own cost. Premium marketing packages are further available with optional marketing choices to assist in achieving the best price on your behalf, arranged through Zoe Napier Group. Furthermore, sellers will benefit from the Zoe Napier Group’s extensive marketing from their Essex and London offices and will further be provided with a dedicated auction specialist to ensure the best possible results with regular updates and feedback.
