Do you keep missing out at auctions?

Buying property is  stressful enough on it’s own – you don’t want to add the pain of trying to negotiate a successful outcome at an auction to that.

You may be experiencing the pain of trying to buy at auction due to any of the following:

  • You’ve missed out at auctions several times as the actual selling price is way over the price guide
  • You’ve put in offers on property but you’ve had them knocked back as the agent hasn’t taken your bid seriously
  • You’re concerned about bidding at auction – as you feel that you could get carried away and pay more then the real value of the property

How can we help you be successful at auction?

St George Bank reports that 62 per cent of people head into the auction room without a clear strategy in mind, and this translates into 56.8 per cent of people missing out on the property they want. The primary reason for this, that 55.4 per cent of people admit to, is being outbid.

At auction, it can be an intense time. The home you’re looking at buying comes onto the lot and all of a sudden you’re up against a number of other bidders who all want the same patch of real estate. Some might be more experienced, or have more money to throw around, and this can put pressure on your price ceiling.

Bidding emotionally is one of the key mistakes Domain Group lists at auction that can cause buyers to spend far too much on a home, and pressure is something that contributes to throwing your hand up at a price you can’t afford, or one the home isn’t even worth. Don’t get fooled into bidding when you shouldn’t – instead, let a buyer’s agent take the reins and set you up for success.
