Selling

Selling your property through an online auction platform is an efficient way to achieve a quick and secure sale.

Below are just some of the benefits of selling your property through MyBid4It:

  • 0% commission – no Estate Agency commission
  • Best market price – competitive bidding ensures you achieve the best possible price for your property
  • Undisclosed reserve – this is set separately to your marketing price so you will reach a value you expect
  • Quicker funding – buyer deadline is 42 days to complete the sale
  • Lower fall through rate – buyers are more likely to have already done property checks and paid a non-refundable reservation fee meaning they’re less likely to back out
