Auction involves an intensive, high profile, structured campaign which ensures maximum market coverage. It signals to the market that the vendor is serious about selling and that buyers need to view the property with some urgency because it could be sold even before auction.

Prior to auction day buyers must have all their conditions satisfied to be in a cash position to bid. Your sales consultant will work hard to ensure as many prospective purchasers as possible are in this position. The Seller can evaluate market feedback prior to setting a reserve price. The open bidding situation on the day gives confidence to all attending and promotes transparent competition.

Our auctions are held at the Holmwood Auction Rooms, Ground Floor, 397-399 Ilam Road.


Holmwood is continuously self-assessing and refining our efforts. Weekly auction focus meetings and enhanced quality control ensure we’re always ahead of the game and you receive excellent service, a rewarding experience and the best results.
