Property Auctioneers are required by the ASA to explain to prospective buyers the definitions of Price Guide  and Reserve.  The Reserve is the minimum price set by the seller at which the auctioneer can sell the property.  The reserve can be set and agreed at any point up to the start of the auction or indeed can be changed during the auction.  The reserve can be lower than the guide price, the same as the guide price or up to 10% above the guide price.  In accordance with ASA guidelines the guide price can be changed at any time up to and including the day of the auction sale.  If the guide price is changed we will endeavour to advertise the new guide price at the earliest opportunity.  A list of final guide prices will be published in the auction room immediately prior to the sale.  This may be the first opportunity to publish changes.
