Liverpool-based auction house Whitegates is now taking lots for its next auction, to be held at Radisson Blu hotel in the city centre on 10 November.
The agents, based in Walton Vale, are encouraging those who might not have tried an auction before to come in for advice on what to expect before the event. Debbie Taylor, director of Whitegates Auction, said: "It can be daunting if you haven't been before but if you're selling your home or property, an auction offers a real alternative to the open market. It removes a lot of the uncertainty because you avoid buyers that back out at the last minute since the final bid at the auctioneer's hammer is legally binding. Plus it's a much quicker process than selling your house on the market as the deal is done in 28 days. We're living in what many experts believe is a buyer's market, an auction gives some of that control back to the seller."
Properties can be entered into auction for no fee, with the seller only subject to charges once the property is sold. Whitegates Auction is expected to offer a variety of residential, development opportunities and commercial stock.
