Thank You for entrusting your property to us for marketing by auction…

With our many years of experience in this marketing method our aim is to facilitate an unconditional sale at a price you consider acceptable within a specific time frame.
With a proven record of success in auction we will do everything we can to assist you.
Your consultant can provide you with a current copy of our recent auction sales statistics. These are updated weekly and published for availability every auction day.

The Marketing Campaign…

Marketing your home is essential when auctioning.
Our experience has been that often the stronger and larger the campaign, the more likely you are to attract the attention of prospective purchasers.
Your consultant will assist you with selecting a campaign that fits your needs and your budget whilst ensuring your property is highly visible in the marketplace.

Open Homes

Your Harcourts gold consultant in addition to providing information on your property, will provide the Sale by Auction documents, LIM, Title, etc to prospective purchasers (those showing good interest in the property).
Other Harcourts consultants will register their client’s interest in writing using a ‘Buyers Registration Form’. Your consultant will familiarise you with this.

Market Feedback

It is essential during the auction campaign that you receive as much feedback as possible. Your consultant will contact all viewers and prospective parties during your auction campaign.  We do this to ensure you are fully equipped with the current market’s feedback in order to prepare you for your decision making come Auction Day.

What happens if a Buyer wants to submit a Pre-Auction offer?

A copy of this procedure is included in all our auction books provided to buyers. The offer must be unconditional and presented with 10% deposit attached.

Reserve Set

Our auctioneer, your consultant and one of our auction managers will attend the reserve set so you can meet the key people who will be assisting you on auction day. The auctioneer or auction manager will then take the reserve documentation with them. The reserve is confidential to the parties present.

Aside Agreements

On occasion aside agreements are requested by purchasers. An aside agreement is a formal request for a variation to the particulars and conditions of your auction.

Auction Day

Our auctions are held in our gold auction rooms situated at the rear of our Papanui office at 471 Papanui Road. Refreshments are provided and parking at the rear of the building and outside the auction rooms is easily accessible. You will be supplied with an order of auction to give you an indication of where in our auction schedule your property sits, this is known as the order of sale.
