Utilising Property Auctions as your method of sale can be a great way to sell your home fast and maximise the price achieved. If you are considering an auction, then your agent has probably told you that your home is unique and when marketed correctly, will attract lots of attention. This will result in an excellent price being achieved. This is great if you can attract the large number of potential bidders required, who through the natural home auction process, will drive the price past the reserve and into the “on the market” territory.

For many people, buying a house at auction is a huge gamble. Often there is little, or no property information on the condition of the building’s structure and timber pest history. Potential bidders could be concerned that there may be underlying issues with the property and would find themselves in a difficult position, if the property has costly faults. A buyer who is successful under the hammer is making a non-negotiable commitment to purchase the property, i.e. there is no cooling off period – they have purchased the property “as is”. Would you go into an auction situation without knowing the structural integrity of a home? 

Sellers who are looking to take their home to auction and want to maximise the number of prospective buyers should remove any obstacles that may hold bidders back. A great way to do this is to carry out the Structural and Timber Pest Inspections prior to the Auction. Home Integrity will provide a report that can then be made available to the potential Buyers. This will give them peace of mind that there are no underlying issues with the property. In fact, when done right, the benefit of the Structural Building and Termite reports can be passed onto the buyer, giving them total peace of mind and confidence.
