Their service, from beginning to end of the purchase, was excellent from being shown around the property, then chasing as required, through to a successful completion.

Definition of a Guide Price and a Reserve Price;

Guide Price
An indication of the seller`s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Reserve Price
The seller`s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. Bids may be accepted by the system but the property will not sell if the bidding does not reach the reserve. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

*Guide Price/Reserve Price
Guide Price: An indication of a seller's minimum expectation at auction and given as a "Guide Price" or a range of "Guide Prices". This is not necessarily the figure a property will sell for and is subject to change prior to the auction.

Reserve Price: Each auction property will be subject to a "Reserve Price" below which the property cannot be sold at auction. Normally the "Reserve Price" will be set within the range of "Guide Prices" or no more than 10% above a single "Guide Price."
