Each property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property during the auction). The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. The ‘Reserve Price’ may exceed the ‘Guide Price’ listed. If so, it is customary for the ‘Reserve Price’ to exceed the guide price by no more than 10%.
