How Going Once Auction works

It’s completely FREE to sell with GoingOnce. No charges, no catches. As is normal and standard with auction situations the buyer pays a non-refundable reservation fee. This covers our costs AND gives you the peace of mind of a committed purchaser.

There’s two options. You can register here and upload your property – we’ll do the rest. If you prefer you can contact us here and we’ll do everything from start to finish.

GoingOnce is innovative, it is new but we aim to provide the highest levels of customer service; the end result you’re looking for, an efficient transaction and complete transparency throughout the process.

We are trialling on the ISLE OF WIGHT so there is a human being to talk you through it with free advice beforehand and free after-sales support all thrown in. You can call us on 01983 822 122 for a free consultation, at the property, with an expert of 30 years experience.

You are in control every step of the way. You might perceive auction as right for bargain hunters but often the opposite is true. Whilst there are some properties or circumstances that would be UNsuitable, we’ll quickly advise you, so that no time is wasted. For the vast majority that ARE suitable, YOU set a reserve figure (the price you want to achieve), we agree a guide price for marketing purposes and on the day of auction you watch as the bids roll in. Crystal clear to you, the bidders and the successful buyer.


Once you have given us the go-ahead, we prepare details in the usual way and over the period of 21 days from launch we will hold one early open day and one just before the auction. This maximises the opportunity for as many people as possible to view and be geared up to bid. We clarify with all of these prospective bidders the process so that they are fully vetted, proceedable buyers.

Once a successful bid is made the buyer pays the reservation fee and the memorandum of sale links both parties solicitors clearly stating the process timescale to ensure a smooth and efficient process within the 56 days.

On exchange we will arrange the final handover, with keys etc. and on completion your solicitor will transfer the sale proceeds to you, paying off any mortgage outstanding

We will ask you for your satisfaction feedback and conclude any matters outstanding.
