Timing is everything. And in today’s property market, that’s never been more true. When to sell? When to buy? It’s a big call and the clock is ticking.

That’s why, on May 5th 2017, Bayleys is putting together Canterbury’s biggest and most exciting residential property auction event. We’re calling it the Big Call.


About the Big Call

The Big Call brings together buyers and sellers throughout Canterbury for one day of intense buying and selling.

Our last Big Call events have achieved exceptional results, with the majority of homes reaching or exceeding reserve. Our expert auction team and likeminded motivated vendors were major contributors to this success.

This May, the auction will be even bigger and better with a wide ranging advertising campaign to support it. We’re pulling out all the stops with print advertising, flyers, online advertising and more.


Why it’s good for vendors

One of the things that makes the Big Call so successful is the amount of support we provided to our vendors. Once again we will be providing hugely discounted advertising in the best publications and online to ensure you capitalise on this exceptional opportunity.

But the biggest advantage is the sheer volume of buyers that we can assemble in one place, at one time. Thanks to our regional advertising campaign online and in print we will get buyers to our auction room.



Why it’s good for buyers

The Big Call makes it easy for buyers to access multiple property auctions, all in one place, during one concentrated week of activity.

What’s more, in an auction the result is immediate. In other sales methods, buyers have to wait hours or sometimes days to know if their bid has been successful. An auction allows the unsuccessful purchaser to move onto to another property – and the successful buyer to celebrate, there and then!


Is the Auction process for me and my property?

Auctions are the most straightforward way to buy and sell property. Buyers can take confidence from seeing other people trying to secure your home, while the vendor receives fair market value in the form of a cash and unconditional offer on their property giving them the security to make their next move.
