Farewell auction paddle, hello live bidding app

by Urbane Property

Fancy buying a Newtown terrace with your tablet, or an Erskineville semi through your smartphone? Now you can, thanks to a game-changing property app.

Auction day in the inner west has become even more thrilling, with the release of an Australian-first live property auction app.

The Urbane LIVE app replaces traditional auction paddles with mobile devices and computers, enabling prospective buyers to participate in live-streamed auctions via their device from anywhere in the world.

Buyers can bid in real-time from their device.

For overseas and interstate bidders, or people who are often out of town for work, the Urbane LIVE app is a game changer. Not being present on auction day is no-longer a barrier to bidding first-hand, with online bids via the app communicated to the auctioneer in real-time. Vendors are also set to benefit, with the app exposing their property to a greater pool of potential buyers on auction day.

Online bidding allows vendors to tap into a greater pool of potential buyers.

Even on-site bidders may prefer to bid through the app in place of the customary nod or hand gesture, taking auction-day poker face to a whole new level. In close-knit villages like Newtown, some people may prefer to bid discretely, without neighbours knowing what and how they’re bidding.

Onside bidders may prefer the discretion of bidding through their phone.

If following the property market is an Australian national sport, this innovative app has turned it into an armchair activity. For curious neighbours, or people who are watching the market, the app provides an easy way to keep abreast of price trends in their area.

Urbane LIVE is just one of the ways we’re bringing fresh energy and innovation to your property journey. From promoting sustainability as a selling point through liveability ratings on our property listings, to interactive tools that make virtual tours better than the real thing, we’re on our own journey towards empowering new futures for our clients, our community, our agents and our industry.
