Unsold Auction Properties February 2017

Home: Auction Link » News » Unsold Auction Properties February 2017

The success rates for most property auctions are in the region of 70% to 80%, so if there are 100 lots entered to the auction, you would typically expect 70 to 80 to sell and the remainder will be available for purchase after the auction. We’ve looked at some unsold lots from the February 2017 auctions.

By Mark Grantham –  6th March 2017
If you’re selling a house at auction and want to be sure of a sale, you will need to set a realistic reserve price. These unsold lots from the February 2017 auctions demonstrate the importance of setting a realistic reserve price. There’s a good possibility that if these properties are not sold after the auction, they’ll be entered in to a subsequent auction, possibly with a lower reserve price.
