Our property auctions are conducted according to the ‘Amsterdam system’, whereby the price first rises according to the bids from the room. The auctioneer then adds a premium to the maximum bid and gradually decreases the price until it is accepted by one buyer with a shout of “mine!” This unique and traditional method is a combination of the conventional auction and a ‘Dutch’ auction, both held at the same sitting. Anyone who has attended an auction will be familiar with the excitement created by the crowded room and lively atmosphere.
