ESTATE agents Harrison Murray has launched a new online auction service to meet customers needs through a modern method of selling their property.
The benefits to sellers of the auction service are numerous – allowing them to sell their home for free, as well as imposing fixed time scales in which to sell and move.
The service – exclusive in many of Harrison Murray’s operating areas – is accessible through the company’s website, and gives buyers a step by step guide to the auction process once they have found their perfect property.
Harrison Murray managing director Nick Salmon said: “The service offers users a modern method of sale. Suitable properties are listed on to the auction site – and people can bid on a property much in the same principle as you would bid for an item on an Internet auction site.
“The main benefit of the scheme to sellers is that there is no commission to pay, hence no fees for selling the property. It is the buyer who pays the fees.
“An additional advantage for the seller is that only people who are serious about purchasing will bid – and every time a bid is placed in the final half hour of the auction cycle, the timescale is increased by two minutes enabling us to achieve the best price possible for the seller, thus simulating a true auction scenario.
“In an uncertain economic climate many sellers opt for the modern method of sale because it can offer the speed and security of a traditional auction with the ability to achieve fair market value usually only associated with a more conventional method of sale.”
Nick added: “Harrison Murray constantly strives to provide the best level and choice of service to our customers, and this latest service is already proving highly popular and successful.”
The service has been selling auction properties at the rate of around one per week since its recent launch, one of which took just 12 days from listing, to viewing, to a winning bid.
