When buying a house at auction, you are required to make fast and smart decisions about how much you believe the house is worth, how much you are willing to bid and how much you will need to set aside for repairs once the house is yours.

The best way to make the best choices when you are called upon to decide these things is to ensure you know exactly what it is you are bidding on. A pre-auction Inspection gives you the knowledge you need to be able to make the right decision for your family when the time comes.
