Selling at Auction


Public “AUCTIONS” in the United States have had a rich history of success, going back over three centuries. Today, over $50 billion of real estate is sold at auction every year and includes all varieties of real and personal property, including any type of residence, business and trade.

Whether you are a farmer, contractor, attorney, banker, broker, builder, board member, business owner, developer, executor/ executrix, heir, homeowner or investor, the reasons to sell at auction can be very motivating.

The auction, many times, exceeds the prices obtained in a conventional transaction. The auction system is a proven technique to sell property in a compressed time frame at true market value. The high bidders are immediately required to give a significant, non-refundable deposit and sign a contingency-free purchase agreement. The buyers are heavily vested in the transaction, resulting in a near certainty of sale that allows sellers to "plan with confidence" because they know their property will close and they will be paid on time. An incorrect theory is that an auction is a last resort. Properly marketed, professionally conducted, real estate auctions are a proven way to sell real estate from the get go.

Auctions "cut to the chase" of the offer process. Offers are made in the form of verbal bids at the auction and the procedure ultimately forces buyers to give their top cash price offer on the spot. Multiple buyers competing simultaneously, on a definite date and time, will get to the bottom of the offer process ASAP. TIME IS MONEY.

Instead of carrying a piece of real estate for six months to a year, or longer, an auction can effectively be scheduled in 30- 60 days from approval of an auction agreement.
