Why sell real estate at auction?
- It’s a quick sale: You pick the
date your property will sell! Reduce double payments of mortgages,
utilities, insurance, taxes and upkeep
- It’s stress free: The auction
method eliminates numerous showings, no back & forth negotiations, no
contingencies – property is sold “As is- where is”
- Preparation made simple: Prior to
the “Open House” we will suggest to you how to bring your property to
optimum selling condition. If desired, we can prepare and stage your
home for you!
- Buyers are prepared: During the
open house, the auction terms and property information sheet are printed
& provided so buyers will attend the auction as pre-qualified and with
pre-specified down payment in hand. We will aggressively screen all
potential bidders who tour your home and insure they are very informed
about your property, the auction terms and the simplicity of the bidding
and buying of a home at auction.
- Competition: Auctions create
competitive bidding - this can drive prices
- Market values: The true value of
real estate is what your bidders are willing to pay – appraisals are
paid opinions – true market value is determined during the auction forum
- Seller control: As the seller,
YOU can decide the terms of the sale – Reserve or Absolute auction -
we’ll explain and suggest – but YOU set the terms
- Commission FREE: There is a
Buyers Premium added to the final high bid that you accept. This premium
absorbs the auction costs – making this a commission free sale for you
During the auction, we WILL
secure bids, you say “Sold!” and it really is that simple!
