Traditional - this is normally a sale held in public where the property is sold to the highest bidder. If the sale doesn’t reach the reserve the property isn’t sold.

Modern Method – these auctions are growing in popularity, it offers the same speed and certainty of sale as for Traditional but operates more like eBay. The main difference over Traditional is that the buyer is responsible for the auctioneer fees rather than the seller.

So if you are considering an Auction as a method of selling your home in the Bishop Auckland / County Durham area just get in touch to talk to one of our experts who will talk you through all the options to make sure Auction is the right choice to get you the best value.
