An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction.  The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase.  It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing.  As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued.  The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall.  A guide price is different to a reserve (see below).  Both the guide price and reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

This is seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell.  A reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.  Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

EPCs can be viewed in full on our website http://johngoodwin.underthehammer.com on the sales details page or in the legal pack.

Contracts are exchanged immediately at the end of the auction and a deposit of 10% will be taken from the highest bidder. THIS DEPOSIT WILL CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS THE PURCHASE PRICE.

The date for legal completion will be set at eight weeks from exchange of contracts (28th May) or earlier by agreement which means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance.
