What Are My Chances of Success?
As there are many more bidders than properties, bidders typically wait several years before being able to bid successfully. There are several ways you can assess your prospects:
- When you bid for a property the system will inform you of your current position in the queue of bidders for the property. This may change as other people bid for the same property after you.
- You can access details of all the bids you have placed and their final queue position through the website.
- Tables are published on the website showing the bids received for properties previously advertised and how long successful bidders had been on the waiting list.
- The most popular properties are houses and bungalows, followed by flats and maisonettes on the ground floor. If you want to reduce your waiting time switch your bids from houses to flats or maisonettes or go for properties that are higher up.
