Buy or sell a property online today

Auction Trade want to transform the property auction process and let buyers and sellers trade property within the convenience of their home.

We specialise in helping buyers and sellers to exchange properties of all kinds, without the time, uncertainty and expense that comes with using a traditional estate agent. And because we’re exclusively online, our fees are much lower than a typical property auction house.

Easy property sales

We take the stress out of the buying and selling process, by making the whole process quick and easy – and giving both parties the assurances and flexibility they’re looking for.

Sell your property fast

There might be many reasons you want a quick sale, but whatever they are you can trust us to handle the sale with efficiency, sensitivity and care. We’re the experts at selling properties online, and have a reputation for getting the best price.

You set the price

We are experts at valuing properties, and will give you a realistic guide price, and be able to advise on your reserve – but you are always in complete control. We find that by giving honest valuations, rather than the inflated prices high street estate agents are famous for, we can give sellers more achievable expectations of the price their house will sell for. And with the right people bidding on your property, the final sale price could be much higher than you expect – but never lower than your fixed reserve price.

Guaranteed sales

Plus, thanks to our sister company, we also have the option to buy the property ourselves, offering you a cash price, without any conditions – and you could have the money in your account in days. They’ll simply value the property, and make you an offer, which you can take or leave. Please visit their website for more details.
