Is selling my house at auction the best way to sell now?

Hi, I'm in Scotland and have had my house on the market for over 2 years and carried out extensive external and internal work but despite it being marketed by 2 different estate agents in 2 yrs it isn't selling; the HR value is £75K and I was willing to accept just 60% of the value as I need it sold. Two offers have fallen through and it emerged these were investors who were just trying to scam (the estate agent should have realised this!) and I'm at my wits end now especially as my estate agent assured me it was sold when it wasn't. I know I won't get the full market value for it due to the current climate so am I better going to auction now? How much would I need to pay in fees if it did't sell at auction? I don't know why it is not selling as it is in a good area and has been completely refurbished and had a new roof etc just last year. My neighbour who put her house on the market at the same time has now taken her house off due to no viewings (she was asking for a higher price than me).

  • Hello "Littlecat1", auction is a good way to sell your home but I don't feel you have explored all your options yet? The Scottish market is difficult at the moment but not impossible.
