Your chances of successfully bidding

Bristol City Council owns 27,428 properties across the city, and our partner Housing Associations own 9821. In 2015-16, approximately 2,000 properties became available to bid on through HomeChoice Bristol and over 11,000 people were registered to bid.

With so many more applicants than available property, many people will be unsuccessful with their bids.
