How to set up a meeting with Auctioneer?
We will meet with you and go over every aspect of how an auction works in relation to your specific situation, property or assets. Not all properties and sellers are good candidates for auction. We turn down more properties than we book, if we don’t think it will work - we don’t suggest having an auction
Why should I consider an auction?
• At auction, the seller is in full control - you can set the date, time, and the Terms & Conditions of the auction.
• Sellers can set a reserve, together as listing agent/ realtor, you and the auctioneer will help set these expectations.
• Assurance that property will be sold at true market value.
• Bidding creates competition among buyers - which drives the price of your property up.
• Property is sold in “As-Is” condition, seller sets Terms & Conditions of Sale, you are not subject to any post auction inspections or appraisals.
• The seller knows exactly when the property will sell, closings usually in 30 days.
• Eliminates numerous and unscheduled showings.
• Ensures an aggressive marketing program that increases interest and visibility.
• Exposes the property to a large number of pre-qualified prospects.
• Quick disposal reduces long-term carrying costs, including taxes & maintenance.
When should auctions be considered?
A good auction situation is one where the seller:
• Property is difficult or tough to comp (nothing sold compares).
• Needs an immediate sale or has a partnership/marriage break-up.
• Property has been on the market for a while, or listing is about to expire.
• Property that is in need of repair or seller wants to sell “As-Is".
• Whenever a seller is moving out of the state or is retiring.
• When property is part of an estate and includes personal property items.
• If seller has already purchased another house or has high carrying costs on the property.
• Sellers that have equity in property
