BidX1 South Africa’s auction on 30 March 2021 offers buyers some very good and interesting properties well spread around the country – and in particular in the Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Johannesburg.
“We received an excellent response to our recent auction last month (February), with positive results for buyers and sellers alike,” says MC du Toit, CEO of BidX1 South Africa. “This saw 115 bids placed, with a total of 47 registered bidders and fierce competitive bidding on a number of lots, reflecting a high level of interest among serious buyers across the regions.
“Feedback we receive from buyers is that the platform allows them to be in control of offers made on their property of choice, and while making their offers on a public platform, they still remain anonymous with only the bidder number being displayed. This allows buyers all the benefits of an auction, but without the pressure of being in the same room in person with other bidders, giving them a fair and transparent chance of purchasing the property.”
