Opportunity Knocks...

Opportunity Knocks...


Do you wish you had a property crystal ball?

At least one auctioneer thinks that November's auction will be a litmus test for the next 12 months.

And what happens in the auctions today will be reflected in the wider property market in six months' time.

So who better to give us the inside scoop on the auction world than Jeremy Prior, director of Auction House UK, who run more than 40 auctions throughout the country.

Meanwhile... I finally make a pre-auction offer!

This episode also contains a case study on how the likely rises in interest rates could have a drastic effect on investors using short-term finance for their deals. Deatial can be found here.

Other contributors to this week's show: Andrew Brown, auctioneer for Strettons, Sally Smith, director and auctioneer for Loveitts, Rod Turner, host of the Rodcast and Piotr Rusinek from Hammered.
