Because of her impeccable attention to detail, a strategy is discussed with you prior to auction, it is essential to be fully prepared, Tracey also discusses the strategy just before the auction, as depending on the amount of registered bidders, the strategy may have to change at the last minute, only an experienced auction bidder can do this.

For most, bidding at auction can be absolutely daunting and totally nerve racking, it’s fast and furious and not for the faint hearted, either “on site” or in the “Auction Rooms” (Tracey nicknames Auction Rooms “The Snake Pit”) – Most people have never even bid at auction before or it might be the first time bidding in years.

Have you recently spent months, even years searching for your dream property? (Some of Tracey’s client have spent years searching).. Trying to re-arrange your life going to open houses, which are all staggered at different times of the day and week, in between kids sports, babies feeds, work commitments, you eventually find your property and it’s going to auction, this is the start..

You then have to organise and pay for a pest and building, strata report, solicitors, as there is no cooling off at auction.

You turn up on the day, not knowing what to do, you are out of your mind, nervous, hiding at the back of the crowd, this is an absolute dead giveaway to the Agent, Auctioneer and any savvy bidder in the crowd, for this reason, the Agent will be putting huge pressure on you throughout the auction, you will more often than not, emotionally bid with the competition and over pay, leading to regret and if you miss out, it is back to the drawing board.
