What happens at the end of an auction

Don’t walk off

You may not be the winning bidder, but don’t walk off too soon. If the property passes in, you could still be in with a chance of negotiating for the property.

Use your research to negotiate

Use your research into recent sales in the suburb with your knowledge of where the property should sit in the market to negotiate with the sales agent. This shows that you know what you’re talking about.
