The benefits of selling your home by auction 

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.

The deadline timeframe of auctions creates a sense of urgency and focuses potential buyers. The transparent format of auctions also drives competition to obtain the best possible price for your home.

At Bayleys Auctions, you can be assured that all bids are entirely genuine, and that our auctions are conducted with total transparency and in compliance with the Real Estate institute of New Zealand's Code of Practice.

Our Auction team has a proven track record, and can provide crucial experience and negotiation skills to maximise value for all parties.


The Big Call Auction Week

On February 1, Bayleys is putting on The Big Call Auction week. New Zealand’s biggest and most exciting residential property auction event. It brings together buyers and sellers throughout the country for one short week of intense buying and selling.

Our last Big Call event achieved exceptional results for our vendors, with the majority of homes reaching and exceeding reserve. This February, 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 TV advertising, print, flyers online advertising and more.

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 to ensure you capitalise on this exceptional opportunity. So if you’re thinking of buying or selling a property, Bayleys Big Call Auction Week is a great way to turn your dreams into reality.

Plus you have the opportunity to earn up to 500 Airpoints Dollars™ when you sell with Bayleys.*

There’s never been a better time to sell – and there’s no better selling method than an auction!
