How to Find a Property Auction Bargain

  Property auctions are a great place to find a variety of properties and opportunities. Many properties end up in auction for a number of different reasons – it could be that a quick sale is needed (e.g. repossession), a best market price needs to be achieved (e.g. housing association stock), the house requires refurbishment (difficult to get conventional lending), the property is unusual (e.g. a water tower) or there are complicated legal issues which make it difficult to sell via private treaty (through an estate agent). Auctions can offer great opportunities for property investors as some properties can be bought at “below open market value” and in some cases properties can sell for around 50% of their “market value”. However, the key is in understanding what the “market value” is and in understanding the different risks associated with the property. To understand if a property is a potential bargain the...

11 Top Tips for Buying at Auction

Buying a house at auction is easy when you know what you are doing but can prove costly if you don’t take some simple precautions. John Davies from Hedge Property Group gives some advice for anyone wanting to invest in property or just needs to grab a bargain 1. Plan your exit strategy – know what you’re going to do with the property 2. Visit the property with the valuer 3. Have the legal pack checked 4. Visit the local letting agent – Do your Due Diligence! (see http://www.justdoproperty.co.uk/due-diligence-in-15-minutes for more help with this) 5. Choose the auctions wisely – sometimes going to the quieter auctions pays off 6. Never, ever bid first 7. Be careful of ‘off the wall bids’ 8. Bid when the auctioneer says “going once, going twice” – and watch other bidders, who’ve done their homework 9. When the auctioneer says “it’s in the room” that means...

What kind of properties are sold at auction?

  They are sometimes unusual or quirky properties that will not normally sell through estate agents and that are difficult to value or compare and really need to attract property investors, cash buyers or people looking for special deals. However, there are also perfectly standard properties that are being sold via this route – and you’ll also find a large proportion of mid range and first time buyer development projects in the pages of the auction catalogues. More recently, I’ve seen new build properties coming into the auction rooms as well, as developers are ‘off loading’ some of their unsold stock - and as an unfortunate result of the credit crunch, banks and lending institutions also put properties that they have had to repossess from the owners into auctions to realise some value against them quickly. This mix of stock can be regular semi detached, detached and terraced houses, flats and...

The Process of Buying a Property at Auction

The process of buying a property at auction can be an exciting way to secure your dream property, but it isn’t for the faint hearted. Things can happen very quickly in the auction room and you need to have done your homework beforehand in order to bid confidently and avoid paying too much. Good planning is key at this should start with an understanding of what will happen on the day.   Prior to the Auction   Find the property from the Auction catalogue or online. Once you have identified property that you would like to bid on, you should check it out legally. The vendor’s solicitors will have prepared legal packs containing (where applicable) special conditions of sale, title deeds, leases and searches to help you make an informed decision. If you need further legal information you should contact the vendor’s solicitor – the details of which are usually provided...

UK’s ‘cheapest’ flat sells at auction for £18,000

It looks like you can still pick up a bargain at Auction these days.  This flat was expected to go for £1000 but due to some heated bidding it sold at £18,000. Which just shows that the auction room dictates the price.  It looks like the flat could do with a touch of TLC though.  Perhaps they can get Sarah Beeny around to give them some advice!

Chancel repair, can cost dearly!

I was amazed to see this on the news last week and in the Guardian.  A couple had inherited their lovely home which was close by to the local church. They were hit with a chancel repair bill for £230,000 and after an 18 year battle ended up with legal costs of £250,000.  They were forced to sell their inherited home to pay the bills.  It seemed such a shame, they sold the house at auction for £850,000 but most of this was swallowed up by the repair bill and the legal fees.  Gail Wallbank who owned the house with her husband, Andrew, criticised the church authorities, saying that it is completely against Christian principles!  At the auction she was thinking that they were giving away their house to the church. We all see the chancel repair liability on the local searches for the property that we’re buying, but I never...
