The company has had its own furniture and fine arts department for 75 years, with auctions held on a monthly basis, and the decision to expand into property comes after a surge in interest from people wanting to sell at auction.
Ibbett Mosely’s Auctioneer and Valuer Alan White said: “We’re really excited to be launching this new service. Auctions can present great opportunities for astute buyers and investors to secure a dream home or good investment away from the regular property buying market.”
Property auctions are becoming increasingly popular as a result of programmes like ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ and a way for sellers to gain the best possible price for their property.
Alan added: “Buyers and sellers also have the benefit of a quick and uncomplicated sale, knowing that once the hammer falls the contract is legal and binding and you don’t have the uncertainty associated with selling a property in the conventional manner.”
The first auction will take place at Ibbett Mosely’s auction rooms in Argyll Road, Sevenoaks, on 12th April. Doors open for registration at 10:30am and the auction starts at 12 noon. Lots are already being taken for the second auction on 5th July.
