How to get your hands on a bargain property at auction

by , 25 May 2015

Investing in property can be a great long-term investment.

Whether it's for your own use or to rent out, you can look forward to your property gaining value over the years.

Opt to rent it out and you'll have monthly rental payments coming in too.

Property auctions give you an opportunity to pick up a bargain. But before you start bidding, you must do your homework.

Read on to find out how to buy a property at auction for the best price…

You need to do your property investigations before auction day

Once you’ve decided that you want to buy a property at auction, you need to start looking at catalogues for upcoming auctions.

You should come across properties that fit what you’re looking for. It’s vital you see these properties and give them the once over before auction day. Buying a property that you haven’t seen in person can be very risky.

If you feel you don’t know enough, ensure you take someone who knows about property with you to help you carry out a thorough inspection.

Work out the value of the property before auction day

It’s vital you know what the rough value of a property you’re interested in buying is before you start bidding.

So go onto a website like Property24.com first. Have a look at similar properties in the same area. Check what properties have recently sold for.

The guide price in the auction catalogue is just that. All properties on auction have a reserve price. There’s a tendency for the bottom end of the guide price to be nearer to the reserve price, but you can’t find this out for sure.

From your investigations, work out what you’re willing to (and can afford to) pay for the property. You want to pay a price that’s less than the value of the property.

The day of a property auction

Ensure you know what your maximum bid is going to be. Whatever you do, don’t go above this.

If you don’t get a property you want, don’t forget there will be plenty of opportunities for you to try again in the future.

If you’re the winning bidder at a property auction, you’re obliged to pay a 10% deposit for the property and take ownership.

So there you have it. How to get your hands on a bargain property at auction.

What’s stopping you from buying property?

Is it because you don’t qualify for a home loan?

Maybe you do qualify for a home loan, but you don’t have the money to pay the 10% deposit most banks ask for – let alone the money to pay those costly transfer fees.

Don’t let that get in your way.

Because the truth is, once you know how to get around these common property investing “problems”, buying and making money from property is dead easy.

How can I be so sure?

I’ve done it myself…

And today I’m going to show you exactly how to build your very own property empire in just 90 days.
