What Makes For A Good Auction?

Once again, Brown & Co auction department demonstrates its ability to deliver results for our clients.  Recent auction success suggests that Brown & Co is one of the region’s most successful local auctioneers with a combined average of lots entered to lots sold into auctions this year reaching nearly 90% success.  This means, 9 out of every 10 lots entered into one of our auctions sells, which of course makes us and our clients extremely happy.  We attribute this success to the professional way we approach each lot, providing tailored marketing and advertising and conducting more open days than nearly every one of our rivals.  Open days are a special and important part of the process and obviously more people through the front door (so to speak) will undoubtedly lead to more bidders in the auction room, which will provide a greater chance of success and in this case as mentioned nearly 90%.

Our skilful and expert auctioneers ensure that the very best price is achieved during the sale.  The whole process from when a client instructs us to the auction date is extremely transparent with regular updates, usually twice weekly.  We pride ourselves in the close relationship that we have not only with our clients but with their legal representatives too.  This ensures that vital legal information and documents are available to all well in advance of the sale.

Expert knowledge and advice is given initially during the first appraisal and this carries on all the way through to auction day, and even beyond, making sure that we maintain our high rate of success. 

If you have a property that may be suitable for a sale by auction and you would like further help or advice then contact the auction team who are always on hand to assist in any way that they can.
