Property Auctions offer a fast and effective way of buying or selling a property or piece of land without some of the drawbacks of private treaty sales or the tender process. There has been a noticeable increase in the number of normal, everyday house buyers and sellers who prefer the high degree of certainty, the reduced timescales of 4 weeks from start of marketing to exchange of contracts and the complete transparency that an auction brings with it.
Our typical clients are private individuals who have a property in need of modernisation or are dealing with an elderly relative or probate property, landlords who are selling their existing Buy To Let property with either the current tenants in place or when they have just moved out and anyone with a building plot, paddock, garage or disued building.
Strakers are one of the leading and most experienced regional auctioneers in the South West, specialising in the sale of residential property, commercial premises and land with auction venues in Swindon and Devizes covering Newbury to Bath, Cheltenham to Salisbury and everything inbetween. We are holding 8 auctions shared equally across our two venues throughout 2014 and hope to improve on last year’s figures of 90% of Lots sold equating to £15M worth of property and land.
