Britain’s Most Haunted House goes under the Hammer

Houses are put up for auction for all manner of different reasons, whether the owner is after a quick sell, the house is in need of serious modernisation or it is purely that unique on the open market that valuing it is virtually impossible.

People attend Online Property Auctions for the vast array of different properties on offer and the bargains they can pick up, but even the most discerning property auction goer may find themselves a little surprised, if not shocked to come across one particular lot when they visit their next auction.

Wymering Manor is an eerie 17th century grade II listed building which used to be a vicarage. It also happens to be the most ‘haunted’ manor house in Britain and has made into the domesday book, on ‘Most Haunted’ on TV and has a gained an impressive reputation amongst ghost hunters for having high levels of paranormal activity at any one time. Activities include, to name but a few, children’s whispering, sudden changes in temperature and strange apparitions.

The council, who currently own it, are putting it under the hammer at a Residential property auction soon to try and save costs. The house certainly has a unique selling point and any potential buyer may see the opportunity to buy this and make some money offering breaks in the ‘Most Haunted’ House. Avid ghost hunters would surely relish the chance to experience just one night where they may come across any manner of paranormal activity: An experience surely worth gaining if not to just pass down to your grandchildren in story form one day.

Things you should know about Property Auctions

So, you’ve bitten the bullet and decided to try and buy BMV property through an auction. Hopefully you have chosen to do this having spent some considerable time researching and attending previous auctions so you have got a feel for what they are like, what the process is and how the format works.

Here are just a few reminders for you prior to your big day:

  1. Before bidding takes place it is a good idea to get pre-qualified by a lender so you know that you have the financing on the spot if you are the successful bidder.
  2. When the hammer goes down and the auctioneer says sold, that property is yours. There is no going back at this point so you need to have made sure you have researched the property well and are certain you want it.
  3. On any given auction day it is quite possible for twenty plus properties to be up for auction and each one could take as little as an hour to be won, so you need to be on the ball and make sure you are ready for your ‘lot’. If you snooze you lose.
  4. Keep to budget. One of the biggest pitfalls people face is when they get too excited and end up bidding more than they have originally allowed for the property. This can lead to all manner of problems so stay disciplined.

Of course, these days, auctions can be even easier than this. Surf online and you will come across Property for sale by auction online, which makes the whole process as easy as bidding for something on your other favourite online auction sites.
