Auction sales are growing in popularity in England – and now estate agents across Scotland are being offered the chance to include the option of selling their properties through auction.
Gilson Gray Property Services, the property arm of the law firm Gilson Gray, has teamed up with Pattinson Auction to take the benefits of auction to a wider audience.
Gilson Gray will showcase the attractions of an auction through seminars, information packs and meetings across Scotland.
Matthew Gray, Managing Director, said, “Auctions should be seen as an increasingly attractive option for agents, especially for those with properties to sell outside the main cities who will not generally have the volume of viewings or interested parties. This option will appeal to many owners, particularly at a time of political uncertainty.
“Securing a sale through auction could be vital for an agent, especially if a property has been on the market for a considerable period of time.
“That not only leads to happy clients, but will bring an additional revenue stream to agents.”
Justin Beckwith, Auction Director at Newcastle-based Pattinson Auction, said the link with Gilson Gray is key for the firm as it continues its expansion in Scotland.
He said, “Working closely with Gilson Gray will ensure the benefits of auction can be brought to many more clients.
“Sellers and agents will gain national exposure thanks to our network of partner agents. As we have been officially named the fastest growing auction house in the UK, our influence will only continue to grow.”
