"We had difficulty selling our two units in central Bournemouth, via the traditional method and we decided to enter them via auction through Clifftons. They used their online platform in a way consist with property auctions, namely exchange of contracts happens on the fall of the hammer to the winning bid, over the reserve price, with completion taking place 28 days later. Clifftons have taken this process online making it fully accessible and transparent. I'm extremely pleased."  Mr A. Bradshaw.

Traditional Property Auction

This is an immediate exchange of contract, on the fall of the hammer.

Modern Method Property Auction

The process works in exactly the same way as traditional auction, however, at the end of the auction, the winning bidder enters into an exclusivity agreement where they then have 28 days to legally exchange contracts. This approach opens the market to more buyers and allows buyers more time to arrange finance that can be tricky with traditional auctions.

Property Portfolios

Auction is a good means for property portfolio disposal, although, we will individually tailor the packages with property portfolios. The advantage can be reduced stamp duty and there is a strong demand from corporate buyers. Properties needing refurbishment also make great auction lots. 

Properties in need of updating make ideal Auction Lots. They are in great demand from refurbishment specialists and private buyers, keen to undertake a project for their own occupation or for resale. They also appeal to buy-to-let investors who carry out the improvements then retain the properties as part of a property portfolio. 

Residential Properties

There are always entries by private home owners that needs to be sold in a competitive bidding environment. Market value prices have regularly been achieved by this route, resulting in an outcome that cannot be challenged by any unsuccessful bidder. We cover Bournemouth and Poole and across Dorset and Hampshire. 

Tenanted Properties

Residential bungalows, houses, flats and apartments with tenants in situ sell well at Auction. Often the best buyer can be another landlord, and auction is a good place to attract them. The auctions we have attract both large and small property investors. This often means the tenants can stay in their homes, reduced disruption with block viewings and for the seller, you receive rental income right up to completion. A good win, win proposition.

If you are selling this type of investment our property auction is a good option. We have a large number of investors who will look at these type of investment properties.
