Auction app will assist with all deals
In2Assets has always strived to be at the forefront of technology, and last year launched a new online auction tool which has now become extremely important during the pandemic lockdown, says Hein Hattingh, managing director of the KwaZulu-Natal-based property specialists.
“Staying healthy and keeping others safe is currently our priority. As circumstances now require social distancing, we have taken steps in response to the crisis and switched seamlessly from the always well-attended In2assets public auctions to disposals via the In2assets property auction app. It will enable buyers to bid for properties online to keep clients and our staff safe during these challenging times,” Hattingh says.
He says the In2assets app will offer two types of online bidding options: Live studio auctions – streamed directly from the In2assets head office and conducted by auctioneer Andrew Miller. These studio auctions will enable national and international clients to bid on properties via the app in real time.
Online times auctions – with no auctioneer officiating, buyers will be able to bid on auction lots online over a predefined period of time. “Our priority is customer confidence and data security. In2assets uses use highly advanced data security systems to ensure bidders’ personal data is not comprised in any way. All bids are fully disclosed, and with real-time alerts, buyers can participate with confidence.
“Our first live studio auction will take place on April 28 at 11am, with auctioneer Andrew Miller on the ‘digital podium’ while the lots are streamed directly onto our app, allowing scope to bid on all properties in real time.”
For more details about this auction, download the In2Assets app via the App Store (iPhone) or Play Store (Android) or see auctions.in2assets.co.za to register to bid or view the auction lots.
Hattingh says coming soon from In2assets will be the launch of Capx2 – “South Africa’s first intellectual commercial property portal” – to enhance the service the company offers for commercial, industrial and agricultural property transactions. He says South Africans should remain calm and positive and look after their health during these difficult times.
“The situation will change and business will then resume as normal.”
