Auction Finance Can Raise Funds Quickly

Apr 29, 2008
If you are looking for auction finance to help you fund a purchase, then you may find that a specialist company will be able to help you find the best short term loan solution for you, should you find yourself needing access to funds quickly to make your purchase at auction. Finance of this nature is incredibly useful if you are considering purchasing a property of some sort at auction, since such a huge amount of money is involved. It is vital that before you attend an auction and begin the bidding process, that you have all of your finances firmly in place, otherwise you may find that you do not have enough time to acquire the necessary funds.

You will find that the majority of the lenders you come across will generally lend based upon the valuation or the purchase price or guidance price, usually this will be whichever is the lowest value. Typically they will lend you up to a set amount, although in some cases and depending upon the lender, you may be able to obtain the full amount of the funding needed, depending on your circumstances.

Of course, make sure that you check this with them first and do not take it for granted that this will be the case. You should also take note that a property will not always sell for the guide price that is given and it could in fact be either higher or, if you are lucky, lower. It is important that you set yourself a maximum bid for the property as it can be easy to get carried away and bid more then you have. Loans can be agreed before, during or after the auction, and if you have arranged your finance in enough time then you will find that your funds will be available in time for you to complete the sale.

The type of auction finance that you need will depend upon the length of time that you intend to have the property for. If you plan on buying with the intention of then selling on for a profit, you will only require a short term type of loan. A bridging loan is one of the most popular types of short term finance and is most often taken out for a period of between 1 to 12 months. This form of loan is an interest only facility that enables the property to be bought and completed virtually immediately. A bridging loan may on occasion, be repaid by refinancing it on a long term basis or by selling the property.

When you look for your auction finance, the company or broker that you ultimately choose to go for will decide the exact terms of your loan and will be able to tell you how much they can lend to you. The terms of your loan can be anything from between 1 month upwards and, depending on your needs, you may be able to find someone who can loan you money against any type of property including residential or commercial.
