Property Auctions - Any good websites?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


We all hear on TV, on the radio, in the papers and on property podcast about buying at auction, but, where are all of these auctions taking place and how do we get hold of the catalogues?


I have searched many times on the web and never seem to find anything more than a few small sales, and barely any have any decent online catalogues.


The best I have found and always refer back to is Clive Emson http://www.cliveemson.co.uk/ , but I am keen to find others.


So, if any other members know of other sites that have a good online catalogue or catalogues that are easy to get hold of then please comment and share below.


Many thanks.

hi David


I keep an eye on the folowing:


Savills (London based but have property from around the country)



Allsops - again London based with nationwide



Barnard Marcus (not used this one as much)



the three above are all free



Fox and Sons (South East)


I think you have to pay for the catalog - we bought a flat from these guys in Feb 2014 and got "stitched" up with some nasty hidden (to us) purchase costs (about £3k)...



and if you are really serious sign up for EIG - allegedly they "host" most of the auctions sites and provide an "umbrella" service but I haven't used them yet.  I did speak with them last year about the costs but I can't remember now...




regards, John

If you get the YPN magazine all the auctions and dates are in the back.

Really interesting list coming off the back of this, thanks to you all! 


I've never flipped a property before but well worth a consideration if I can find the right one at the right price.

Not being a conglomerate is a good thing for us all as we do not have huge overheads or costs to cover – that means lower cost of insurance for you.
