Argh! just found a lovely house . Offered to be told " they've decided it's going to auction"

Half tempted to go to the auction but I guess you have to invest in the searches /survey etc without any guarantee you will get it? Is that about right?

They want to sell/move fast. So do I and have the cash ready and accessible but that doesn't seem to mean anything these days.

Going to try substantially upping the offer I guess but if they still brush me off I should I suppose walk away..

Anyone bout at auction. How did it go?

It's easy, too easy, but a great way to buy because you don't have to wait around.

Get your ducks in a row, organise your finances,

Stand at the side of the room so you can see everyone, keep eye contact with the auctioneer.

I always put my first bid in just before it goes, usually who ever thought they had it, finds it hard to restart, especially if you seem determined.


good luck.
