List of Property Auction Websites

Completely Free List of Property Auction Websites

Here is a completely free list of property auction websites because if you're looking for homes for sale, then you need to keep an eye on property auctions. Sometimes tracking down auction websites can be hard, so below is a list of the main ones, which will save you weeks of research - bookmark it now!

If you're looking for a properties auction date list in your county, then it can take hours to find on the Internet - so I have put this handy list together to make it easier for you. If you like it - please help me and tell a friend!

The TV programme Homes under the Hammer shows auctions, so you might recognise quite a few of the names from the television - as well as some companies who are more local to you.

In addition to traditional property auction websites, new companies have started up in recent years, using the internet to make it easier for you to view catalogues online, or even past auction results.

The list of property auctions websites is growing all the time, so I will update it with every new one I find.

I hope you find this list of property auction websites interesting and useful.

NO TIME TO GO THROUGH ALL THE AUCTION SITES?

This page contains a huge list of property auction websites, if you simply don't have the time to sort through them all and keep an eye on property in your area, there are a few services that can provide you with just properties you are interested in.

The Property Auction people have a database of over 450 Property Auctions across the country and you can simply register with them and search by town, country, postcode or type, meaning it would take you just 5 minutes a day to keep abreast of the houses YOU are after - the information is updated daily. For up to two weeks after the auctions you can also quickly search and scan through unsold lots.

Check it out, it'll save you missing out on the ideal property at auction just because you couldn't find 3-4 hours every week to trawl through every site. Some properties are sold at auction hundreds of miles away from where they actually are, making this database invaluable.

Tools include property chimp,.property bee and property snake. Work smarter, not harder! It's tough enough finding a house you like through conventional methods, buying a house at auction's riskier, but quicker!

The real estate auctions I have attending ended up selling the properties for about what they would have sold otherwise. Needless to say, I didn't buy anything because I was looking for a deal.

Yeh I agree most sales end up being a form of auction anyway so makes sense just limit the bidders and go direct! Good Article though.

Often times, it seems like getting a good deal at a property auction depends on how heavily it is attended. Usually the ones that don't draw huge crowds are where there can be deals to be found.

Buying at auction is pretty scary, my advise is to make sure you have your bridging loan or mortgage (unless you are fortunate enough to be a cash buyer) ready to go as soon as the auction is finished as it's a tight deadline and a hefty deposit to lose if you don't complete on time.
