If so, what properties do they suit and what do they not suit and why?

Really any property that is likely to attract any competition is suitable. The most obvious ones are those in the higher price brackets (more cash buyers), very unique properties (harder to price and often highly sought after), and those in highly desirable locations (more buyers). Other considerations that are positive signs for an auction include – a buoyant market, a fairly relaxed financing environment, and the Seller’s situation may mean that a short campaign and unconditional sale is desirable.
