Property Auctions

Providing a leading auction service in the South and West Yorkshire Region, our property auctions have been a characteristic of the firm since its origins in 1845.

We hold a number of property auctions throughout the year which include properties from our Residential, Agricultural and Commercial departments.

There is an increasing trend to sell property by auction with a 12% rise in residential properties sold by auction since 2003.

Auction is a quick and effective method of sale that avoids protracted negotiations, and gives buyers and sellers security over the timing of the sale. It offers a clear and transparent sale process to help demonstrate that best value has been achieved for the property. This is particularly important for properties sold by certain Charities and Institutions.

Auctions also have the benefit of bringing all interested parties together to bid in a competitive environment, often resulting in properties achieving higher prices than when offered by other methods of sale. Once the Auctioneers gavel falls it effects an exchange of contracts which is binding on both parties, and therefore removes the opportunity for purchasers to otherwise renegotiate terms which could lead to unnecessary delays and problems.

Wilbys has the benefit of specialist departments and various members of each department have been strategically co-ordinated to provide a comprehensive professional service for disposal of property by auction.
