  • 1. Pre-Approval

    Before attending an auction, it is advisable to obtain pre-approval for auction finance. This involves providing relevant details about your financial situation and the property you intend to bid on. Pre-approval gives you a clear understanding of your borrowing capacity and allows for a smoother bidding process.

  • 2. Bid and win

    Once pre-approved, you can participate in the auction and place your bids. If successful, you will be required to pay a deposit (usually a percentage of the purchase price) immediately.
