not all properties will achieve their best price on the traditional property market.

Properties or land lots that are in need of renovation, or are for any reason unmortgageable, rented out to tenants, part of a mixed-use site or ready for development regularly come to auction for the following advantages:

• Immediate exchange of contracts on the day of the auction (or earlier if sold prior to auction)
• Fixed completion date
• Best price achieved in open market conditions through competitive bidding
• High exposure through extensive traditional and online marketing
• Serious buyers with funding in place
• Inspection of the property to the exchange of contracts can take less than 4 weeks.

At Auction House Sussex, we are one of the largest property auctioneers covering the South East of England and are considered market leaders locally.

“Adam, Melanie and the team provided me with an excellent service from beginning to after completion. Adam has extensive knowledge, and a very shrewd judgement of the auction market that my property would attract. During the lead up to the auction both Adam and Melanie offered help and useful advice. I am very pleased with the result. I would unhesitatingly recommend them.”

Very Satisifed Customer

“I placed my flat with Auction House Sussex after nearly a year of struggling to sell it via traditional methods. I couldn't be more pleased with the service I got. From the first contact, they were helpful and professional, clearly explaining the process and the pros and cons of selling via auction with absolutely no hard sell or pressure to go with them. While the property was on the market, they handled viewings professionally with minimum disruption to me, and always providing clear feedback quickly after the viewing. When I received pre-auction offers, they did a great job of handling the negotiations, and I ended up with a sale price far better than I could have anticipated. They then managed the final details up until the transfer of funds and handover of keys, making it all as easy and painless as possible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”

“I really valued the experience I received from Austin Gray and the way the house sale transaction was handled. I would wholeheartedly recommend Austin Gray for any house sale transactions.”

Jimo, Shoreham-by-Sea

“Having used Austin Gray to arrange the auction sale of my property in Brighton, I have no hesitation in recommending them. The professional approach from the start, and sound advice from the whole team, proved sound. Without doubt, the smoothest and fastest sale of property I have experienced.”

Malcolm, Ventnor

“When I decided to sell my garage I had thought that the best route might be a private sale to a neighbour for what I thought was a fair price. However, after talking to Austin Gray's Auction Department I was persuaded to try the market properly at auction, as they insisted it could do much better. I am hugely grateful for that advice as, even before the auction, offers started coming in well above what I had anticipated. These were all refused and the eventual auction result was truly surprising. I have actually used Austin Gray several times in the past and would not hesitate to recommend them. Their advice was spot on and more than justified the fee.”

Neil, Brighton
