Property Auctions

Why sell your property through auction?

 

No sales fee

You can sell your property with absolutely no estate agency or auction fees.

 

Security

When a sale is agreed, the buyer is obliged to make a non-refundable deposit payment towards your property, meaning they are financially committed to purchase your property. Less than 1% of our sales fall through after this point.

 

Sell fast and hassle-free

Selling a property through the auction process ensures a quick and hassle-free process. The buyer must complete the purchase within the auction timescales, which tends to be either 28 or 56 days. We also take care of everything for you, from the preparation of the marketing materials and advertising to conducting all the viewings right through to the hammer falling. We then take care of everything beyond this point, to ensure the highest levels of customer care. Our aim is to soak up the stress for you, leaving you free to concentrate on purchasing your next home if this is applicable.

 

Reach a wider audience

We have formed an auctioneering partnership with a like-minded company who, similar to us, have over 28 years of experience in the world of auctioneering. This partnership helps to ensure that your property receives the maximum exposure on a national and even international scale.

 

Selling your London property at auction

James Anderson regularly conducts an online property auction that offers a secure and safe way of selling your home. Your property will benefit from excellent exposure, to ensure it reaches the right buying audience, leaving you in total control of the process. All auction properties are sold subject to a reserve price; this way we guarantee that your property will not be sold for less than your agreed amount. However, we always aim to achieve far in excess of this figure when selling to the highest bidder.

Make the most of your garden all year round

As we are officially in winter, we typically spend less time in our outside spaces. But now more than ever, Brits are looking for new ways to make the most of their gardens all year round.

With these tips, you can make your garden look and feel more inviting for the colder months, whether you decide to brave the cold or not!

Keep those green fingers busy

You wouldn’t assume you can work on your gardening skills in December, but we have just the thing for our keen gardeners out there.

Are you looking to brighten up your drive or balcony? Why not plant the following shrubs to add a splash of colour:

  • Holly: a Christmas favourite. Choose a female variety to get the bright red berry.

TIP: why not try a self-fertile variety such as Ilex aquifolium ‘JC van Tol’ to guarantee you a crop.

  • Spindle euonymus europaeus: plant these bright pink lantern-shaped flowers to liven up your doorway.
  • Crab apple: varieties such as Malus x robusta Red Sentinel burst with gorgeous red fruits all the way through to January, so get planting.

Make it cosy!

Even if you have only a balcony or a small patio garden, you must still utilise it! If you have a larger garden, then focus on warming just a small, more intimate area rather than tackling the whole space.

To better that, add shelter to shield you from the cold nights and lights to enhance a cosy atmosphere by creating strong shadows, framing your designated winter garden beautifully.

Repurpose old cushions and throws

You don’t need to have designated furniture for outdoor use only. Grab some spare cushions, throws and blankets that you already own and repurpose them for the garden.

Don’t leave them outside, have a basket that you bring out with you when you do happen to sit outside.

Have you thought about a fire pit?

Having a fire pit will be sure to get everyone using your garden during winter. You can find a wide variety of firepits suitable for all garden sizes.

Firepits have many great benefits. They keep you warm and create opportunities for fun activities for your family like roasting marshmallows.

Entice the wildlife

Plants are great ways to add colour to your winter garden, but have you ever had a beautiful robin or a goldfinch spread their wings in your outside space?

Invest in a bird bath to entice birds in.

Birds need water for drinking and to clean their feathers, especially in the winter months when most water sources may be frozen over. Make sure the bath is no deeper than 5cm deep and add stones or gravel for some grip.

Adding bird feeds around your outside space will also bribe these beautiful birds around your home.
