Traditional auction is often referred to as In-Room auction or Public Ball Room auction. It is the most established and common approach to selling by auction and TV programmes such as BBC's Homes-Under-the-Hammer have positively shone the light on the effectiveness of traditional auction.

Key benefits to property sellers choosing to sell by In-Room auction are transactional speed, transactional certainty and transactional transparency. The method of auction sale employed in Brown&Co In-Room auction is Unconditional sale which sees the property legally contracted as 'sold' at the fall of the auctioneers gavel.
