Can You Guarantee to Sell My House?

Honestly, yes we could, but that would be cheating! We could put a guide and reserve price on a house of say £1.00, that would guarantee a sale, but obviously, this is not the result that you would want.

Better solution would be to deal with experienced auction experts as we will offer tailored advice to best suit your needs, the property type, its condition, the location and timescales by which you need to sell. Our advice ensures you have the best chance of selling for the best price.

Our Guide and reserve advice is geared to ensure you get maximum interest in the property, the more bidders we generate, the higher the sale price will be. On auction day we will know the likely outcome and will plan accordingly for if we feel bidding may struggle to reach reserve. We can set a secondary reserve; you can authorise us to sell while bidding is taking place or we can provide an underwriting agreement that guarantees a sale on the day of the auction to the underwriter or an auction bidder if bidding exceeds the underwritten amount.

What is an Underwriting Agreement?

Underwriting at auction is a way for the seller to secure a guaranteed sale at auction no matter what happens in the auction. A buyer, the underwriter, makes an offer the seller is willing to accept. An underwriting agreement guarantees a minimum price the seller will receive. In theory, the seller could accept the offer and simply sell before auction. However, with an underwritten offer, the seller has the added advantage of still offering the property through the auction. If a bidder in the auction bids above the underwritten bid, then the seller benefits with a higher sale price. The seller wins either way.

Even if the bids on auction day are less than the underwriters offer the seller still has a legally binding sale at the guaranteed offer price. It’s a win-win situation for the seller.
