TYPEs of auctions


Estates often include Real Estate and/or Personal Property. Every estate situation is different in many ways. Sometimes there is only real estate, sometimes there is only personal property & sometimes real estate & personal property need to be marketed.

The main advantage of the Auction Method is that in any given situation, an auction will work as long as sellers are realistic about values. When both real estate and personal property need to be sold, it makes sense to market them at the same time to gain maximum advertising exposure. Properly conducted estate auctions are the “One Stop Shop” way to market estates. If you have real estate & personal property, why not hire one company to handle the whole transaction with confidence?

Why sell 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.

It was our first auction, an absolute real estate and contents auction. Steve was very professional and thoughtful throughout the process, guiding us through every step and made us feel at ease with our decision.

The day of the auction, Steve and his team did everything and gave us the assurance it would be ok, and it was!!! If we ever need an auction service again we will contact SDZ Auctions. Thank you so much for all your and your team’s hard work. We really appreciate it.
