But auctions can do strange things to people..
A consideration which may sway you to try the property auction route is that many professional and non-professional buyers get caught up in the heat of the moment and pay over the odds for property at auction. But it is a gamble. You have to play the odds. If you think they stack up in your favour - go for it!
The alternatives to selling your property at auction
If you're having doubts, read on. There are alternatives to selling your property at auction which you may not have considered.
Firstly, you can try going for a private sale if you want to keep your costs down. But you must get your marketing and pricing right and qualify potential buyers with care. You'll find more on selling privately elsewhere on our site.
Another option is to try to find a cash buyer similar to Sell Your House Quick Help. The investors and landlords among you will already know about cash property buyers. It's not a secret.

Both selling privately and cash buyers are realistic alternatives to selling your property at auction. The down-side of selling privately is that it may take more time to sell than you have available. With cash buyers you do get a quick guaranteed "no questions asked" sale, but you won't get full market value for your property.
And what about estate agents? The estate agent route shouldn't be considered among the alternatives to selling your property at auction unless you use an agent with links to cash buyers or is part of an auction group.
