South Africa: BidX1 & Pam Golding strengthen partnership with launch of Pam Golding Auctions powered by BidX1 technology
We are delighted to announce the launch of the first BidX1-powered Pam Golding Auction – a stunning selection of houses and apartments across South Africa which will be offered for sale through the BidX1 digital platform on 22nd October.
BidX1 and Pam Golding Properties, South Africa’s leading real estate group, initially teamed up in 2018, forming a strategic partnership which brought online auctions to the South African property market.
Today, we’re very pleased to be further enhancing that collaboration through the launch of Pam Golding Auctions, which will be powered by our unique proprietary technology.
The first catalogue features 17 properties in locations like Cape Town, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth, across a range of price points. Highlights from this inaugural catalogue include a spectacular Cape Dutch period style residence in Pretoria, offering beautiful views over the city’s eastern suburbs and surrounded by landscaped gardens.
A penthoes apartment in Cape Town, situated on the doorstep of the city’s financial hub, offers chic city living with stunning harbour views, while a three-bedroom thatched home at the Silver Lakes Golf Estate in Pretoria boasts a mini wine cellar, luxury staff accommodation, and 180-degree views to the North.
A high-end family home at the Woodhill Golf Estate in Pretoria is another notable property, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, beautifully manicured gardens and a private swimming pool – as well as stunning views over the Pretoria East skyline.
A magnificent beachfront home on popular Harold Ashwell Boulevard in Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, is also being offered on 22nd October. With ocean views throughout and the ability to walk off your patio straight onto the beach, this incredible property is likely to attract significant interest.
Stephen McCarthy, Founder & CEO of BidX1, said:
“We are very pleased to be strengthening our partnership with Pam Golding, South Africa’s leading property group, and to be offering such a strong selection of assets on our digital platform for the first Pam Golding Auction.
“This month’s sale will mark an important moment for the South African property market, as leading real estate agencies seek to offer their clients a modern, digital approach to property sales.”
Dr Andrew Golding, Chief Executive of the Pam Golding Property Group, commented:
“A trend which has become increasingly evident during lockdown and which is expected to continue in a post-Covid environment is that both sellers and buyers are realising the ease and success of the online trading space.
“These properties will enjoy increased exposure to buyers via an online presence on both Pam Golding Auctions and BidX1 portals, as well as dedicated digital marketing campaigns. All buyer registrations and transactions will be managed by the BidX1 SA team, with their sophisticated and integrated technologies ensuring secure and transparent transactions.
“Buyers benefit from the convenience of a seamless, online platform – accessible anytime, anywhere, and on any device.”
With a network of 2,000 agents working in over 300 offices across the continent, PGP is South Africa’s foremost property company, completing over 10,000 transactions each year.
