What to do if you want to sell your property online

If you want to sell your house, flat, land or commercial property, you can enter the lot for auction on the company’s website. You’re also entitled to a free property valuation from a member of the Auction House team.

Auctioneer and director Colin West said: “Auction House can provide the platform for buyers and sellers to complete an unconditional exchange of contracts. A legal pack is available for each property sale, allowing the buyer to complete their due diligence.”

How you can get involved if you’re looking to buy a home

Instead of holding its usual room auction’s at Carlisle Racecourse and Coronation Hall, Ulverston, Auction House will be streaming a series of web auctions during the ongoing restrictions. This will give attendees the chance to bid on properties safely from the comfort of their own home, staying in line with government social distancing measures.

All of the firm’s web auctions are completely secure to enter, with only pre-registered members being allowed access. To bid, you can download an Auction House bidding form online.

Physical viewings are available with individual timed slots.  We also provide potential buyers with floorplans and video walk-throughs, which allow them to see the interior of a lot virtually.
