Selling your home via an estate agent can be a long and drawn-out process. It also involves a great deal of uncertainty. Even after agreeing a sale, buyers are able to change their mind or drop their offer at any time. If you want to avoid this, then using an auction can be a quick and convenient way to sell your home.
Selling at auction will not work as fast as selling to a home buying service, and may not achieve as high a price as you may get selling through an estate agent. However, it will usually achieve a good balance between the two, delivering a reasonably quick sale closer to the market value of your home. Properties sold at auction usually achieve around 90% of their market value.
