iamsold to host free webinar about the modern method of auction
Estate Agents and anyone in the industry wanting to know more about the fast-growing Modern Method of Auction (MMoA) are being invited to attend a free webinar being hosted by iamsold.
Despite MMoA becoming a more mainstream way to buy and sell property there are still misconceptions surrounding it which the webinar will address, as well as the evolution of the method and the benefits it offers to both agents and consumers.
iamsold’s MMoA sales grew by 18 per cent last year and the method is continuing to gain momentum. Earlier this month Rightmove launched a new digital auction feature powered by iamsold, and MMoA sales so far this year are breaking records.
The webinar will take place on Thursday 13 May 2021 from 11am and those wanting to attend can book their place now.
Hosted by iamsold’s Head of Partnerships Tom Bailey with panellists Managing Director Jamie Cooke and Head of Compliance Emma Burdis, the session will cover:
How did the Modern Method of Auction start – talking about how MMoA works, who it is for and busting the myths and misconceptions around the method.
Putting the spotlight on transparency and compliance – discussing the importance of transparency, iamsold’s industry-backed Best Practice Guide and the roadmap for more improvements in the future.
The future of MMoA – looking at how Rightmove and Zoopla are supporting MMoA and what it means for adoption of the method, auction market predictions for the remainder of 2021, and what innovation is to come.
Q&A – time at the end for any questions to be asked.
Jamie Cooke, Managing Director at iamsold, said: “With interest in the Modern Method of Auction growing at speed and more agents considering offering it to meet demand from consumers, we want to use this webinar to share more information about the method and answer any questions people may have.
“It will be a great opportunity for agents to learn more about the benefits MMoA can give them and their clients, and ultimately clear up any misconceptions. One misconception we hear is a lack of transparency around fees which MMoA has faced criticism for. This is an area we’ve driven significant change around to ensure full transparency and that consumers have a consistent MMoA experience. By addressing things like this we hope people will leave the session with a better understanding of MMoA and its place in the market.”
