The Best Auction Tips for Buyers

Regardless of whether you’ve attended a house auction before or you’re planning on going for the first time, there are specific tips that you should always keep in mind during this type of event. Here are a few examples:

  • Preparation is key: Doing your homework before going to an auction event is critical in formulating a winning strategy. You should take the time to learn if there are any specific rules associated with the auction that you plan to attend. A good rule of thumb is to get in touch with the auction host and learn if you can have a copy of the list of properties up for auction that day and whether there’s a minimum bid on each listing. From there, you can make your decision regarding how much you plan to spend and which properties you’ll bid on.
  • Plan to attend more than one auction: Unless there is a property that you have your heart set on, you should plan to participate in different auctions so you have a better chance of getting more bang for your buck. You may find that houses in different areas are more affordable than others, which can help you save money on the auction price and allocate to other more important projects such as different home remodelling updates.
  • Be conscious of timing: We strongly recommend that you plan to get to the auction a few minutes ahead of the start time so that you can assess the other bidders. Be sure to display confident body language and firmness in your bid. Another excellent recommendation is to open the bidding process with a lower figure. Unless there is a minimum bid, you may come to find that your lower price may be suitable.
