Houses can go backwards

Houses can go backwards

After many months without finding a buyer for his home, David Garcia decided to launch tupisoporuneuro.com , where potential buyers can bid for his house via reverse auction. The bids have a minimum of 1 euro and a maximum of 150 euros and the winner is whoever makes the lowest bid that is not repeated. The scheme works by charging bidders per bid allowing the operator to recoup the cost of the property and auction process.

Why it matters

The reverse auction trend has been buoyant for some time now, and now it appears to be property’s moment. As more and more buyers struggle to enter the market, will auctions become a route to affordable housing? What will this mean for property marketing on the whole?
