Online Conditional Auction digital feature on Rightmove


Our Online Conditional Auction digital feature allows agents to highlight listings that are being sold under Online Conditional Auction (also known as Modern Method of Auction). It differentiates listings in the search results and contains near realtime information about a property's latest bids.

Our initial launch went live on 19th April with iamsold, and we have since began working with Pattinsons, SDL Property Auctions, GOTO Group & Bamboo Auctions. Agents who are using our existing providers will automatically have their relevant listings updated with the new feature. We're supporting this activity with content about Online Conditional Auctions published across Rightmove sites and digital channels to help educate buyers.

 

Why use Online Conditional Auction?

Get paid faster with a quicker sale
Reduce the risk of fall-through
Use as an alternative selling option for vendors who require a quick sale and as a back-up for properties that have not sold through private treaty
Fees are normally paid by the buyer, so no added costs for your vendor other than the provision of an auction pack
