David Clark and Company partner with Auction House

Selling a property by auction is easier than many people think, and the prices that are achieved are usually higher than expected too. We have become the local partner agent for Auction House and feel that their experience and effectiveness in auctioneering coupled with our local knowledge can create a very effective sales platform for certain types of property.
Strong regional and national presence.
Auction House is geared up to sell local property to local, regional and national buyers. We operate over 30 regional auction rooms including one in Central London.
'Local property should always be sold in region by experts who understand auctions and know the area. They will always do a better job and get a higher price. I think that is why Auction House is so successful'
Market Leaders in many areas.
Auction House operates more auction rooms, has more auctioneers and holds more auctions than anyone else in the UK. We are already the most successful, and market leaders in many parts of the country.
'National data shows that Auction House sells more lots and is market leader in several English and Welsh counties including Cumbria, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Cheshire, Norfolk and Pembrokeshire.'
Selling locally achieves higher prices.
Everyone selling a property wants to achieve the best possible price for it. Evidence shows the prices achieved through professionally run regional auctions is higher than at centralised auctions. Auction House are the acknowledged experts in the field and a logical first choice.
'Property sells for more money closer to home, which is why everyone appoints local estate agents. The same applies to selling by auction – choosing a regional auctioneer makes sense and you will be glad that you did'
Our regional auctioneers know your area and visit your property to provide an onsite appraisal.
Sellers need to be very wary of auctioneers who don't attend and inspect their property before giving advice on Guide Prices and Reserves. Auction House have auctioneers and valuers in your area who can meet you at the property, inspect it thoroughly and give you proper guidance.
'I don't see how anyone can know the value of a property without visiting it, seeing its condition and its surroundings. Not only that but how can they sell it effectively without knowing the opportunities that it offers'
UK's No.1 Residential Auctioneer and Top 5 Commercial Auctioneer Now the largest and most successful auctioneer outside London, with Sales in 2012 of 2,075 lots and a success rate of 80% - well ahead of other regional and national auctioneers.
'Auction House is the only national auctioneer with a network of regional auction rooms and the only company running professional auctions in widespread locations across the country. If you want to sell your property through a local auction room they are the natural first choice'
We are local, well known, trusted and respected in the area.
Our auction rooms are run by experienced and successful local companies. These businesses are already well known and respected in the area. Our auction teams live locally, know the area, have a wealth of knowledge and numerous contacts. You can feel reassured and confident your property is in safe hands.
'Not only do they know the area and the local property market, but Auction House also has an extensive register of active buyers. These are drawn from both their auction activities and their estate agency registers. Auction House sells more auction properties to end users, and local people who improve them for their own occupation, or as a rental investment.'
We are consistently more successful than other regional and national auctioneers.
Auction House outperforms other auctioneers, our 2012 success rate of 80% is well ahead of the national auctions average and the results of most regional auctioneers too.
'Anyone thinking of selling by auction needs to look at success rates. The fact Auction House is amongst the most successful in the country makes them the obvious first choice in your area'
Heavyweight well targeted marketing and open house viewings are part of a proven success formula.
Auction House delivers success using a powerful package of local, regional and national marketing and promotion. We combine our specialist local knowledge with regional promotion and extensive national brand publicity to generate more interest and competitive bidding in our auction rooms. We encourage telephone and proxy bids, and wherever possible website viewing of our auctions.

Canvassing For Business

I can remember back in 1990/91 when I was with the forerunner of this firm (my god that's nearly 20 years ago!) that we were in the middle of a property market down turn that I personally believe was far worse than the current one. Osbornes Property Services as we were then called was suffering from a serious lack of income that also had a root in a serious lack of good saleable property to sell.

We were new, very professional, very keen, very hardworking and very keen to please but no one had heard of us. Our marketing budget was limited - we were skint to be truthful! What did we do? Well we set about making people aware of us by 'canvassing'. I wrote letters to other agents vendors, I dropped leaflets, we advertised as imaginatively as possible saying that even in that market we needed property for sale. Did it work? Yes to a degree and we certainly wound up some of the more established local estate agents who were not keen to lose instructions to newcomers like us.

£10k refit competition ??

I have just returned from hospital having had a procedure carried out on my foot/ankle that involves repairing a damaged tendon and realigning my foot by breaking my heel! While waiting to be called down to theatre I sat in my room checking e-mails - as you do when you want to take your mind off things.

There was an e-mail from Colin Clayton of Desk Centre Limited http://www.deskcentre.co.uk talking about a £10,000 office refit and all I had to do was create a blog post suggesting why my office should be the one to receive it! What an opportunity - here I am laid up for two weeks before I can mobilise on crutches and my office certainly would benefit from a revamp in 2013.



Like most surviving, small, independent estate agents we have done this by cutting costs, reducing premises and regrettably letting staff go. Our address used to be 20-22 Market Place but is now 20 Market Place only. We originally moved to No.20 from our first premises in Newnham Street in 1993- my then business par…
