*The above guide prices are an indication of the figure which the minimum price at which the seller is prepared to sell each lot will fall within 10% of. The guide prices for each lot above are different from the reserve prices for each lot. The lots will be sold subject to reserve prices.

The reserve price is the minimum price at which the auctioneer is authorised by the seller to sell each lot at auction. Each lot may be sold to the highest bidder at or above the reserve price, but the auctioneer is not authorised to sell at a figure below the reserve price. The amount of any reserve price remains strictly confidential to the auctioneer, the auctioneer’s staff, and the seller.

Both the guide and the reserve prices are subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. It is the responsibility of interested parties to register their interest in particular lots and regularly check for updated information regarding the lots they are interested in, including changes to guide prices.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
