Steve Barnett, managing partner at Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, said: “Auctions offer the ability to sell all types of commercial property through our expansive network while being able to offer transparency and simplicity of the process.
“But our offering goes further in that we can offer the local market advice from our in-house team of Chartered Surveyors who are based throughout our national network of local offices.” We are already seeing a steady stream of new properties being registered for our next Auction in February 2024 which is evidence of the market witnessing an increased demand for sales via auction.
The online auction involves the posting of various lots online for which the auctioneer invites pre-authorised buyers to post bids via a live broadcast. This live broadcast will witness a significant level of competitive bidding as a number of the lots are already attracting widespread interest.
