Auction Process

Pre-Auction Preparation 

As a prospective buyer, you should conduct thorough research on the property and the local real estate market. Review current listings, recent sales data and comparable properties to determine the value.

Attend the open homes ensuring to physically inspect the property. This allows you to assess the condition of the property and visually identify any potential issues.

Seek advice from a solicitor or property conveyancer to review the contract and ensure you understand the terms and conditions of sale. Amendments are likely to be made to the contract, this needs to be done prior to the auction day. Ensure you have spoken to your broker or bank, organising your finances and getting mortgage pre-approval in place for a loan if required.

To participate in the auction, you must register as a bidder. This involves providing identification and signing a bidding registration form with the real estate agent.

Auction Day

The auctioneer will begin the auction by introducing the property and explaining the rules of the auction. They will then invite bids from the attendees.

Auction Bidding

If you intend to bid, make your intentions clear by signalling to the auctioneer. Bids are typically made in increments and the auctioneer will announce each new bid.

Winning Auction Bid

The highest bidder who surpasses the reserve price (minimum price the seller is willing to accept) will secure the property. The auctioneer will declare the property “on the market” when the reserve price is reached, indicating that the property will be sold to the highest bidder.

Post-Auction & Signing the Contract

If you are the successful bidder, you will be required to sign the contract of sale and pay the deposit immediately after the auction.


After signing the contract and paying the deposit, you are now working towards settlement. Settlement is when the balance of the purchase price is paid and ownership of the property is legally transferred to the buyer.

Auction Strategy

Austin Buyers Agents have extensive knowledge and experience in representing buyers. We will develop an auction strategy best suited for the property campaign, location and your budget.  

Property Appraisal

Prior to the auction our Sydney buyers agents will conduct a property appraisal on the subject property. This helps you to understand value of the property. Our auction bidding service will provide you with the most current data and recent comparables for both on and off market properties.

Due Diligence 

We will complete due diligence and research on the selected property, ensuring that a building and pest inspection has been completed prior to auction day. If one has not been completed our buyers agents will coordinate an independent inspection to be carried out.

What an incredible property buying experience! I had never worked with a buyers agent and wasn’t exactly sure how it worked. Luke really took his time to explain it to me and was very patient, answered all of my questions and achieved an amazing result. My husband and I are astounded by the impressive job Luke did. He managed to find us and investment property and was negotiating until late Saturday night to secure the deal. I highly recommend Luke as a buyers agent.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will need to complete paperwork sent to you by the selling agent. This is to register as a bidder for the auction. As part of the registration process, you will need to provide a valid form of identification. This could include either a driver’s license or passport. The identification is used to verify your identity and ensure you are eligible to bid at the auction.

Upon completion of the registration form and verification of your identification, the auctioneer or the agency will assign you a unique bidder number. This number will be used to identify you during the auction. Ensure that you ask any questions that you have to understand the auction bidding process, rules and conditions of the sale.
