Buy at auction
There’s a number of reasons to buy property at auction.
Unlike many traditional sales, buying at auction is efficient. Completion usually takes 4 weeks, so within a month you’ll have the keys in your hand.
Buying at auction is transparent – you can see bids in real time always knowing how much you may need to bid. The traditional route can be frustrating – you don’t know what other buyers have offered, and you can even be gazumped at the last minute.
Unlike traditional sales, buying at auction offers a high degree of certainty that contracts are exchanged on the auction day.
Follow our 8-step process so you know exactly what to expect before you decide to buy at auction. Property made simple.

1 Very professional and excellent advice from start to finish. Romans recommended a different process to other Estate Agents and achieved a better price than they had predicted. They explained everything very clearly at every stages and responded quickly to any questions I raised. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to other sellers.
2 I instructed Romans Auctions to sell my aunts house and I am pleased to say that they exceeded my expectations (which were very high)! In-depth expert knowledge and sound advice which proved to be the right choice for my aunt. Simon and the Romans team were professional yet approachable, always at the end of the telephone when we needed them and any questions were answered speedily. My aunts circumstances were very sensitive and the Romans team handled the situation with care and consideration which made the entire experience, start to finish, run smoothly. Happily the house sold over the expected price and my aunt will be moving into her new home very soon! Big thanks to Simon and all the team at Romans Auctions 👌 great job!!

5 Romans Auctions recently managed the selling of my family's house. My mother in law is living in a care home with dementia, and had been at the family home for over 50 years. We had to make the decision to release funds from the asset for her care, and achieving the best possible sale price in a short amount of time was a top priority. We approached Romans auctions, as the property was very dated, but had a large plot and plenty of potential. Romans Auctions, specifically Simon Clayton, advised us on the sale and recommended we go down the auction route. Simon helped guide us through the whole process, and they managed the sale of the house making what would have been incredibly stressful time for all the family, a relatively painless and swift process. We listed the house in September, the property sold in the auction a month later, and the sale completed first week of November. The eventual sale price exceeded all of our expectations, and the speed of the process was outstanding. We can't recommend them highly enough and we would definitely use their services again in the future.
6 A very good experience - we will absolutely engage Simon and his team again. All to often support drops away after a sale, but Simon's follow-up and post sale engagement and responsiveness was excellent. Well done - I would recommend.
