TV shows have driven the prominence of auctions. They have made a previously inaccessible world of auctions open to all. However, after watching a few episodes and some YouTube videos, individuals feel as though they are prepared to dabble in this world. They do so without the depth and experience that is required. They do the exact thing that auctions are predicated on which is luck. Through our process of understanding auctions, being involved and running them even for countless number of years we have acquired the knowledge and skill to navigate them. This depth of knowledge equates to thousands of pounds that could be either gained with the right advice or lost with the wrong advice. In our opinion, to enter an auction without this expertise is foolhardy and all it simply does is allow you to sell your property quickly if you are lucky and nothing more. There is an element of salesmanship to make the most out of your property sale, nor is there any use of strategies which get people to bid feverishly.
