The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum or maximum price range within reach of an acceptable sale price within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (Reserve) would fall.RESERVE PRICE is the sellers minimum acceptable price at auction, and the figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell. It may be accepted by the Auctioneer, but the property will not sell if bidding does not reach Reserve. The Reserve price is not normally disclosed prior to the auction.

Matt Edwards, Plymouth Mannamead Road - Branch Manager

Excellent service from beginning to end. All members of the Bradleys team I dealt with during the sale process were professional in all matters. They were calm when I became impatient! Just an excellent all round service! I have employed them in the past to sell another property and will use them again if the opportunity arises.
