SDL Auctions is one of the UK’s most successful auction networks, with over 1,300 lots sold in 2016, meaning more than £150m was raised in sales for our vendors. Our property auctions in the North West have been a huge success so far, and the future can only get brighter. Manchester in particular is experiencing great economic growth, meaning it’s a fantastic time to invest in property in the area.
Property auctions aren’t what they used to be either! Gone are the days of a murky room in the back of your local pub – nowadays, auctions are held in great, modern locations, such as the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford. The whole process only takes around 6 weeks, meaning it’s a great solution if you need to sell your property fast.
Why is it so quick? There’s no chain involved which makes the process a faster alternative to selling through the traditional private treaty. There is also a very specific, intense marketing period for your property, normally taking place over the span of 4 weeks. Everything is finalised within about ten minutes of bidding on the auction day itself.
We’re also able to sell your property at the best price possible. If your house has a certain character to it, or has qualities that makes it stand out in a crowd, auctions can be a fantastic way of making sure you achieve the best possible price for the property – especially when buyers try to battle it out!
On the other hand, if your property has the potential to increase in value through renovation works or planning permission, it also has a great chance of performing very well at auction. This is because our auction catalogues are frequently sent out to developers, property dealers and investors who are in a key position to buy, and are specifically looking for properties they can add value to.
What Our Customers Say
“I would firstly like to thank you for the amazing service you offered on the help of my property. You were very understanding and got us in to the brochure very last minute and luckily on first page, from start to finish I have been amazed on how fast and efficient you were. I hope to use your services again and wish you all the best.” Mrs M
“I would like to thank you for the excellent service that you and your company provided from start to finish. This was my first experience of selling a house by auction so I entered the process with reservations. To actually attend the auction when your own property is being sold was fascinating, if not a little stressful. To actually achieve a sale at a greater sum than we dare hope was something else.”
