Pearsons had their 6th auction of the year yesterday at the Hilton Hotel in West End.

Once again it was very encouraging to see such a full room and there was some good activity on several of the lots. The one that proved most popular was a little old terraced cottage in Deanes Park Road which backs onto Fareham Creek.

Lot 12 - 5 Deanes Park Road Rear

This is a home that has been in the current family for over 90 years, so the sale was very sensitive and the relations needed to be confident that the best price was going to be achieved with the minimum of stress.

The property had been attractively priced with a guide range of £150,000 – £175,000 and with over 70 viewings during the pre auction marketing period we were certain of selling on the day.

The family were sitting in the audience to witness events and admitted afterwards that they were very happy when the hammer finally went down at £230,000. They had previously obtained valuations from several of the local estate agents and no one had predicted achieving a figure that high, so this reinforced their belief that going to auction was the best method of sale.

Award-winning property auctioneer Auction House – which has a branch in Hampshire – is warning that auctions are now the only solution for those wanting to sell empty properties before the weather deteriorates.

Auctioneer Steve Sprake explained: “All too frequently we see properties that have suffered from the damaging effects of wind, rain, flood, snow and ice – and have lost value as a result. Sadly, it is too late to rely on the private treaty route, which has in many cases now become a four or five month process. What’s more, latest figures suggest that nearly a third of private treaty sales are falling through.

“By contrast, auction is the quick, easy and certain alternative. We can’t forecast how challenging the winter weather might be, but if you talk to us soon, your property can be entered into our catalogues and exchanged under the hammer in December.”

Auction House has just announced a rise in year-on-year sales for 2017, despite a more challenging selling environment. The group has sold 2,420 lots so far this year, compared to 2,409 at this point in 2016, at a combined total value of over £300m (£300,104,374).

Commenting on the figures, Steve said: “In the current climate, even to have matched last year’s number of sales would have been impressive. But to have exceeded it – despite the uncertainties of Brexit, political turmoil and future trading fears – is nothing short of remarkable.

“Our activity has certainly quickened since the summer, with more lots offered and sold. Sale by auction has become a solution for more sellers, as other methods fail to deliver the timely results that vendors require. Results are variable across the country. We see the market coming back into balance, with keener guides and reserves delivering competing bids and healthy hammer prices.”

The release of the latest figures came as Auction House unveiled its new website, complete with a more intuitive, user-friendly appeal.

Steve Sprake added: “We wanted to keep the same content-rich approach, but combine it with a dynamic design, to create a portal that is a one stop shop for auction-related material. This includes our unique knowledge bank of auction Q&As, which provides instant answers to the many questions that people ask, and sheds light on the auction method of sale.”


Although we strongly advise prospective buyers to attend the auction, we realize that not everyone can always make our auction date. However, all is not lost as it is possible to bid on properties that you may be interested in without having to be in the room on the day. Please note that there are three options available to you, which I will explain below:

Proxy or Telephone Bids

We offer the facility to bid by either a proxy or telephone bid. I will firstly explain both methods:

Proxy Bid

A Proxy Bid means that you would have given the Auctioneer consent to bid on your behalf up to an agreed maximum, without having to be in the room.

Telephone Bid

A Telephone Bid provides you with the facility to participate in the auction remotely (on the end of a phone), allowing you make your own bid, without having to be physically in the auction room on the day.

How Can I Make a Proxy or Telephone Bid?

In order to make a Proxy or Telephone Bid you will need to complete our registration documentation, which consists of 2 documents which can be obtained by clicking on the link below

http://www.pearsonsauctions.com/ProxyandTelephoneBiddingForms

It is also a requirement to provide the Auction Department, (three days prior to the auction taking place) with two cheques and identification for the purpose of money laundering. This is to enable us to take the payments of the 10% deposit and Buyers fee of £510 including VAT, for the exchange of contracts on auction day.

A list of money laundering Identification requirements can be found on our Pearson’s Auctions website by clicking on the link below:

http://www.pearsonsauctions.com/NoticetoBuyers

Point 8 will explain what forms of identification is required for the purpose of money laundering.

Third Party Bidding

This is when it is possible to arrange for another person to bid on your behalf. In order to do this written authorization would be required from the buyer, along with their proof of Identification and your proof of identification. Should you be looking to send somebody else along to the Auction to act on your behalf, please make sure that it is somebody that you trust and agree figures before bids are submitted.

We strongly advise potential buyers to check that the property is still available prior to the Auction and that there have not been any changes to the Lot, which would be highlighted on the Final Addendum document, which is published prior to the Auction.

Thank you for reading our blog and should you need any assistance please do not hesitate to call us on 02380 474274.
