Auction Finance

What is Auction Finance?

Auction finance is a specialised type of short-term funding that is used to quickly secure a property purchased at an auction. Auctions are events where properties are put up for sale, often with the expectation of a fast transaction. Auction finance is designed to provide buyers with the necessary funds within a tight timeframe, usually 28 days, to complete the purchase of a property won at auction.
