If you want to buy a house in Liverpool at auction, there are several auction houses that operate in the area. Some of my favourites include Sutton Kersh, Venmore and Edward Mellor. As always, when buying at auction always read the fine print and the legal pack. Remember to budget for the auction fees and set a max bid before you attend the house auctions Liverpool. Most of the auctions are currently happening online since the Covid-19 pandemic, so make sure that you have set up as a bidder (you need to be pre-approved to bid on a property).
