AUCTION BIDDING

There are many reasons why property buyers should engage a professional bidder to assist them on auction day. Inexperienced bidders often:

  • Don’t have a strategy
  • Don’t stick to their strategy
  • Bid against themselves
  • Bid based on emotion not logic
  • Pay more than they should have
  • Don’t understand a vendor bid
  • Are unaware when a property is actually for sale
  • Don’t understand what ‘passed in’ means and its implications
  • Allow the auctioneer and sales people around them to influence them
  • Spend more than they intended and have buyers’ remorse

We have experience bidding and winning at countless auctions. We understand the process and nerves don’t get the better of us. We stick to a clear strategy and your price limit so you won’t pay more than you have to and you won’t go over your budget. Our focus is to assist you in identifying true value and avoid being pressured into making an impulsive decision which may inevitably result in an unfavourable outcome.

The Process:

  • A discussion prior to the auction to discuss the property’s value, your budget and a clear auction strategy
  • Complete the paperwork for us to act on your behalf
  • Pre-auction offer negotiation services if required
  • Execution of bidding strategy for you on auction day
  • Post-auction pass-in negotiation services if required
  • Signing contracts
  • Post-purchase support through to settlement
  • NOTE: The auction bidding service is included in our Full Buyers’ Agent Service. Alternatively, it can be used as an independent service.

 

PROPERTY NEGOTIATION

If you have found a specific property, but are unfamiliar with how an effective property negotiating process is executed, or you are simply worried you will pay too much because you may become emotionally involved, this service enables you to be involved at arm’s length with the help of a professional property negotiator and mediator. You give us the address. We will do the rest!

The Process:

  • Inspect the property
  • Present a report and walk through video, if required
  • Liaise with the real estate agent
  • Negotiate the lowest purchase price and the most favourable terms and conditions
  • Contract structuring – insertion of clauses that optimise benefits for the buyer
  • Signing contracts

My Property Scout will:

  • Inspect the property
  • Take a walk through video of the property
  • Provide you with a full report on the property including a walk through video and our comments on the property and its location
  • Generate reports related to flooding, council zoning and a comparative market analysis
