Tips That you Need for Real Estate Auctioning

By: Ron Victor

Buying properties at an auction is a great experience. But you need to do a research beforehand if you are participation. For instance, if you are interested in buying a property in a particular area, then try to find out the bad and good features of the particular area. Try to learn more about the price or cost of the area. You may use the search engine to do your research. Attending the local auctions is a valuable experience as one can learn more about the properties auctioned there. Watch how people bid and try working out the style of bidding. Don't forget to arrange your finances, make sure that you have your money or finance in place before the auction begins. Create a bidding limit and try to stick to it. Include all the extra costs such as finance fees, taxes, stamp duty, etc.

Once if you are happy with the property and if you are ready to buy it then immediately registers with the agent.

The most important part is to set your bidding limit, see if the property is worth and then go ahead to register. You should also check the paper works if you're serious about buying the property. It is good that you read through all the paper works beforehand. You can also read through the documentation or ask for a copy of the documents. It is also important to clarify all your doubts, deposits, fixtures and settlement terms before the auction starts. Hire a building or pest inspectors to get the properties inspected before the auction starts. Do ask for help if you have any problems or doubts. Speak to your real estate agent to assist you with the bidding process. There are some people who ask someone else to do the bidding as they don't have much knowledge about auctioning.

On the day of auctioning dress up neatly and be confident. You need to understand that will be huge number of people at the auction and there will be lots of whispering and sometime screaming! Never stand under a tree or at the back of the bidders, the auctioneer might miss you; especially if you're a first time bidder. Always be loud and clear; bid confidently and early. You need to understand that you should avoid getting into the bidding war as you're emotions will lead you to pay more for the property than you can afford. Once you win the bid make the deposit and sign the required documents. This can be done using bank or personal check as approved by the agent. Then it's time for celebration!
