WELCOME HOME Changing the perception of property auction

OUR PROPERTY AUCTION SERVICES

No other auction provider in the UK & Ireland offers such a complete and comprehensive range of property auction services for estate agents to offer to their buyers and sellers. Together, we hold both live and online auction events nationwide, working in partnership with over 1100 estate agent branches, providing local knowledge and expertise.

 

The Traditional Method of Auction

This is a tried and tested method associated mainly with selling and buying investment stock due to more restrictive timeframes to exchange contracts and complete the sale. This limits buyers and the interest and activity around residential properties.

 

The Modern Method of Auction

This more accessible route, creates a transparent platform for buyers and sellers combining the best aspects of traditional auction and private treaty sales. We offer more realistic yet fixed timescales, opening up the market place for buyers and sellers looking to arrange mortgages as their method of payment. The exchange of contracts has 28 days to take place from the solicitors receipt of draft contracts, whereas with traditional auctions, the exchange of contracts will usually take place as soon as the buyer has won the bid.

The Modern Method of Auction opens the auction market (once reserved for the professional investor or cash-ready buyer) up to residential buyers, creating a larger market place and more interest and activity than traditional auction. It is the preferred route for buying and selling via auction and has changed the perception of auction in the last decade. 

This simple way to buy a house is a breath of fresh air. We could not recommend highly enough. 56 days start to finish!

ABOUT US

In a typical high street estate agent, you’ll be lucky if you get one person with more than ten years’ experience. At Peter Graff, we’ve been here in Winchmore Hill for nearly two decades, with one person with more than 20 years’ experience and another with more than 30 years.

Here’s the difference that makes.  It means we really know the area, every street, in some streets, every property.  So we really know accurate values.  And it means we know people, sometimes even better than they know themselves.  So not only can we match people and properties much more effectively, we can take deals through from offer to completion far more successfully. 

Yet for all that experience, when we get a new instruction, we’re as excited about it as if it was our very first. We could think how the big estate agency chains think: don’t bother with those properties that don’t sell easily – onto the next one that will.  We don’t see it that way.  Because an unsold property has a real owner, and they need it to be sold.  And that’s who we care about – so we need it to be sold too.
