Residential Auction Market Update April 2009

Property Auction Commentary  
Skip to Headline Statistics or Useful Resources

From a sales perspective, the auction market continues to outperform the 'normal' buying and selling market. The number of properties for sale is down by 28% month on month in April, but only 5% year on year. Whereas properties onto the market have halved in the normal market.

The real benefit of auctions is clearly been shown by their ability to sell versus the open market, with a 70% success rate at auction, versus 28% sold versus for sale boards in the open market.
