As part of our Estates Rationalisation programme we identified the need to dispose of 2 properties during 2014 within the Walsall area. Both properties had had various internal structural works to convert from a residential property to office accommodation, making them prime for sale by auction.
All in all the service and support has been made available and as a company they are responsive and easy to deal with and communicate at every stage, including liasing directly with the Trust solicitors to respond to any legal queries.
Due to this being the first of rationalisation sales I attended the auction as an interested party. The auction was very well attended and managed, with standing room only. Both properties received a lot of interest on the night and both exceeded the reserve price. Whilst there were delays in the sale of one of the properties, both sales were managed via Chris and his team to a successful conclusion. From a Trust perspective the sales fulfilled a number of criteria as did the service, mainly providing a value for money service.
The transaction and communication was professional throughout to the point that having identified through a continual review of the estate a further 2 properties have been identified as surplus and meet the criteria above, that Auction House have been appointed to dispose of the assets via auction on behalf of the Trust.
“Sale by public auction was recommended and the property was successfully sold within the guide price. Throughout the whole process the service provided was professional and efficient. All staff were courteous and approachable. There was no complications, everything went through smoothly. I would certainly use this firm again and would recommend them to any prospective buyer.”Pam
Many thanks to Chris and his team for an extremely successful auction.
We have been very impressed with your professionalism throughout the selling process and are most grateful for all your guidance and sound advice.
We highly recommend you to others looking to sell.
Just a quick note to thank you for the very professional way that you dealt with the sale of our house & the good price that you obtained. I would happily recommend your company to anyone wishing to sell a property.Dave
“Chris Edwards and Matthew Moore provided sound advice concerning the sale and we opted for auction, which was a first for us. Throughout the whole process the service provided was professional and went without any complications. All staff were courteous and approachable. The sale went to plan and we were pleased with the outcome. I would use this firm again and would recommend them to any prospective vendor.”Mr Craig
We would like to take the opportunity of thanking you and your team. When Mum passed away we were filled with dread knowing we would have to deal with selling the house, but you made it so easy and took the stress away. Thank you very much.
“I recently appointed Auction House Birmingham to sell my property via their auction. Everything prior to the auction, and up to the point of completion went without any complications. Their staff were friendly, helpful and professional at all times, I would not hesitate to use them again in the future and would certainly recommend them.”Angela
“Dilemma – private sale or auction? Sound advice all through the process and ended up with a few thousand more in my pocket as a result. Smooth process, all viewings handled and a great outcome – thanks.”Richard
After all the hassles and frustrations with my property this year, it has been a delight to enjoy the professionalism of your company, all the major stuff and even down to the charming welcome at the door last Thursday.Fred and Suzanne
I just wanted to write to thank you following the sale of our two properties in the April Auction.
The process was extremely quick and easy, from the time of deciding to sell and exchange of contracts was only three weeks and I now have the certainty that completion will take place within the next 28 days.
I am incredibly pleased with the prices secured on the night, they are at least as high as would have been achieved via a traditional sale and we are sure in the knowledge that completion will take place.
Communication from both you and Cheryl has been great. I would not hesitate in selling via auction again.
