Frequently Asked Questions
Can I buy several properties together?
Group purchases are not supported by the platform. Each auction corresponds to one property. Sometimes all the properties of a residence (main residence, storage, parking) are independent properties and therefore are parts of different auctions. In such a case you must coordinate your actions with the help of our specialized staff. If there is interest in more than one property, you should bid in the respective auctions for them.
Is it possible to visit a property and see its interior before bidding?
Entry into a property is in most cases not possible. This weakness remains and is the biggest risk for a bidder regarding the bid level strategy they wish to submit. The prospective bidder is invited to state contentment with the external assessment of the certified appraisal and the advice of the experienced RETAMA executive.
