Buying At Auction


With more homes than ever being for sale by auction, it’s likely you’ll come across many auction properties when you’re house hunting.

BUYING AT AUCTION IS ONE OF THE MOST SIMPLE WAYS TO PURCHASE YOUR NEW HOME.

It can remove some of the associated anxiety involved in making an offer lower than a vendor’s asking price and allows you to judge the value a property has to you without being biased by the asking price.

Additionally, the bidding process is transparent - You can see or hear what other buyers are offering.  This open negotiation process can help you judge the true market value of a property.

ONCE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BUYING A PROPERTY BEING OFFERED BY AUCTION, THERE ARE SEVERAL STEPS TO TAKE.


MAKE YOUR INTEREST KNOWN TO SUE

Occasionally properties are sold prior to auction and by letting Sue know you are interested, you will avoid it being sold without you being contacted.  Sue can also assist you to get ready to bid.


ESTABLISH THE TIME & DATE OF AUCTION

There are many details to attend to prior to this deadline, so make sure you know the time frame.


GET READY


The better prepared you are the easier your decision making will be.

A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO IN PREPARATION FOR AUCTION DAY


CONDITIONS OF SALE

Familiarise yourself with the conditions of sale and we advise you to seek the advice of your solicitor.  Make sure you know the deposit amount, settlement date and which chattels are included in the sale.


SOLICITOR


Talk to your solicitor and ask them to check out the conditions of sale and the Certificate of Title to the property.  If you have not used a solicitor before, ask your Lodge salesperson for a list or visit adls.org.nz.


ORGANISE FINANCE


A sale by auction requires you to have your finance arranged before you bid.  Your Lodge salesperson can direct you to a mortgage broker or bank to help you arrange your finance.


KEEP IN TOUCH


Keep in touch with the salesperson.


BUYING BEFORE AUCTION DAY


In most cases, properties going to auction with Lodge can be bought prior to the specified auction date.  However, there are certain conditions you must fulfil which Sue can explain to you.

Generational Change

Its not news – With every generation change, the way we live our lives changes as well. Never has that statement been as correct as it is now … Economically, it makes more sense to go out and buy a jersey instead of knitting one, the big “OE” is now par for the course, a large amount of socialising is done via Apps or websites, more and more infants and toddlers are in full time care as both parents need ...
