Auction is the quickest way to sell your property. If selling by unconditional auction, you can instruct, exchange and complete in as little as 4 weeks if you need to sell urgently. More often though, properties will be entered into auction 4 – 6 weeks before the auction day, exchange occurring at the sale, and then full legal completion happening 4 weeks later.
The more marketing time a property has before the auction, the higher chance it will have to sell. However, most auctions teams will accept late entries, sometimes only 2 weeks before the auction day, but you may need to have a keener, more attractive guide price to attract bidding interest.
