  • NO commission payable by the seller when selling on auction.

Auction Process

  • We meet with the clients and sign our Auction mandate, while signing the mandate we will discuss and decide on an appropriate Auction date that suits both parties. We do a FREE BANK VALUATION of the property.
  • Our marketing plan is put in to action immediately after setting the date of the auction. The marketing campaign will run for 3 weeks before the Auction to make sure we get maximum exposure.
  • During this marketing campaign, our Just Imagine agent will still market the property and make sure all potential buyers are happy and taken care of.
  • We will put up between 40 and 100 advertising boards in the direct and surrounding area. The board are placed at busy intersections and strategically chosen locations. Research has shown that more than 70% of response originates from outdoor advertising boards and we have therefore doubled the number of boards in the industry norm.
  • We have a large, updated and categorized SMS database of regular clientele to whom SMS’s are sent notifying them of the specific up and coming open days and auctions.
  • We also place adverts in relevant print media should the budget allow for it.
  • There is no Auction like a Just Imagine Auction.  Auction days are well branded and professional.
  • The Auction will be advertised on our website as well as on all the relevant property websites in accordance with the new Consumer Protection Act.
  • The Auction will be conducted by a highly qualified auctioneer with years of experience that will make sure that we get the highest bid on the day.
  • Copies of the rules of the auction will be handed out on the day of the auction with a welcoming pack to each potential buyer that registers.
  • A 10% deposit is paid by the buyer on the day of the auction to secure the transaction.
  • The buyer will sign an offer to purchase on the day.
  • We will negotiate with buyers making higher offers during the confirmation period to ensure that the seller gets the maximum price for the property.
  • Constant communication with both the seller and purchaser during the process, will insure all parties are informed.
  • After the transaction is secured we will assist with the transfer of the property with the help of our trusted conveyancing attorney.
