After my father passed away in late 2014 I was left with no option but to sell the family home. Whilst there was nothing wrong with the property structurally it was certainly not a dream house and was in desperate need of updating and extensive renovations. It’s only saving grace was the location and it’s potential.
Initially I tried the private market and got offers but unfortunately they fell through as tends to happen. I was then advised to speak to Charles and his team to see what they could do for me at auction.
Right from the start Charles and his team were thorough and professional and took me through a seamless process. They were incredibly responsive and importantly provided me with accurate advice on how to position my property at auction.
Looking back I can’t belief how stress free the process was in comparison to that of trying to sell on the private market. Importantly for my property the auction setting was exactly the right forum for attracting not only private buyers looking for a good deal but also developers who had the foresight to see the potential of the property.
In the end I am pleased to say that the property sold for £65,000 more than what I was offered on the private market which was an amazing result. My only regret is that I did not approach Charles and his team sooner.
I would like to thank you and your company for the fine work you did to sell my father’s house. You made the whole process so easy and the end result far exceeded our expectations.
More people should adopt this method of selling their property instead of the well-worn route of the estate agent and the endless waiting involved.
I shall be recommending this process to all my friends and family, particularly to those near a branch of Auction House.
Mr & Mrs C
Many thanks for your assistance with this one – fabulous result.
We would just like to thank you for the support you gave us and the excellent way you handled our sale. The process has been pain free and we would certainly consider using your services again if the need arose in the future.
Just wanted to post a review to say thank you for selling my mother's flat 15 Hamilton Court.
Ian and the team were extremely helpful and we are delighted with the outcome. Would highly recommend your company. Great result.
Thanks to all
Ms C Mills
Just a short note to thank you and your team for a trouble free and easy sale of our two properties in Watford in your October auction. My wife and I very much appreciate all your efforts in securing these sales.
Just wanted to thank you for your work in relation to the sale of 11 Glebe Road, Biggleswade. Your service was excellent and we really appreciated your help. It was a very quick process and also completely stress free for us. Thank you for the recommendation for the solicitors who were also very quick in producing the legal pack and were also very straight forward, but provided an excellent service. Please thank Alex who also dealt with us, we found everyone so polite.
WOW! How long does it take for the shock to wear off?!! I’m really elated at the fantastic outcome of the sale of my mother-in-law’s property through Auction House Beds & Bucks. And what a lovely bunch of guys you all are to deal with too! All the feedback by phone after each stage of the run up to the auction today, right up to yesterday evening, has kept everything buoyant and positive. I am so glad I chose to go down the auction route rather than through stuck-in-the-mud estate agency. From when I first contacted you, through the whole process pre-auction and the excitement of the auction itself, has been a whirlwind of activity. Even before the auction date, I was already recommending Auction House Beds & Bucks to friends and family if ever they had property to sell. Thanks to each and every one of you and the whole team at Auction House Beds & Bucks. Brilliant, just brilliant.
I thought I would write to you following the very successful auction sale of my late mother’s property to thank Charles and Fiona for all their efforts and advice over the last month in achieving this tremendous outcome for me and my family.
When I reflect back over the fact that in only 24 days you took on our property, prepared the web advertising and marketing, arranged 3 open days for viewings, included the property in your sale catalogue, auctioned and, most importantly, sold the property for above current asking price, you and your professional services have out-performed my expectations by far.
I can only commend in the strongest terms your professional and extremely efficient services. The advice and guidance you both gave me throughout the process proved to be invaluable and I always felt fully updated as the plans came to fruition. As you know, my brother attended the actual auction and highly praised your auctioneer for his skills in helping to encourage the bidding along so professionally.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your services to any other clients, and again thank you so very much for such a successful result for me and my family.
I am dictating this letter to you via Maggie as I want to say a personal thank you for your support through what could have been a very stressful experience for me. You made me feel very comfortable and this was reassuring. I felt as if you were on my side all the way and so you gave me hope for a positive outcome, and you were right. If I had to sum up my experience it would be that you have shown me nothing other than 'respect ' 'professionalism' and 'compassion ', the latter a quality sadly lacking in many businesses today.
