3 Key Mistakes to Avoid When Selling Your Property at Auction

October 2, 2023

Selling your property at auction can be a lucrative venture, but it’s crucial to steer clear of common mistakes that could hinder your success. In this blog post, we’ll discuss three key pitfalls to avoid, based on insights from experienced auctioneer Andrew North, Harcourts Cooper and Co. By sidestepping these errors, you can enhance your chances of a smooth and profitable auction.

  1. Don’t underestimate early offers: Overlooking early offers is a common misstep. The saying “first offer, best offer” holds true in today’s market, so carefully evaluate initial bids instead of dismissing them outright. Waiting for a higher offer might not always pan out, so give due consideration to early proposals.
  2. Set realistic pricing expectations: Accurately pricing your property from the outset is crucial. Seek appraisals from at least two real estate companies, specifically asking if they believe your property can sell within 30 days. This ensures you understand market conditions and attract motivated buyers. Avoid overpricing or undervaluing your property by considering multiple opinions.
  3. Ensure a clean LIM report: Thoroughly review your LIM (Land Information Memorandum) report. A clean LIM report means there are no outstanding issues or restrictions that could impede the sale. By providing potential buyers with a clean LIM report, you streamline the transaction and facilitate easier financing. Address any issues in advance for a smooth and hassle-free sale.

To maximize your success when selling your property at auction, avoid these three critical mistakes: undervaluing early offers, setting realistic pricing expectations, and ensuring a clean LIM report. By sidestepping these pitfalls, you increase the likelihood of a seamless and profitable auction experience.
