REAL ESTATE AUCTIONS

WE HAVE SOLD EVERY HOME (8) WE HAVE EVER COMMISSIONED TO SELL!!! ASK ANY OTHER AUCTIONEER IF THEY CAN SAY THAT!
TOP 10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD SELL YOUR HOME BY THE AUCTION METHOD!
#10 THE PROPERTY SELLS ON YOUR DESIRED DATE. An auction is a fast and effective way to sell your home. We usually market the home for 3 weeks before the auction.
#9 YOUR PROPERTY SELLS TO THE PERSON WHO IS WILLING TO PAY THE HIGHEST PRICE!
#8 AN AUCTION DETERMINES THE FAIR MARKET VALUE OF PROPERTY. Open and competitive bidding between motivated bidders accomplishes the goal of determining fair market value. There is no risk of the seller arbitrarily establishing a price that is either too high or too low.
#7 YOU SET THE MINIMUM BID TO START THE AUCTION! In consultation with us, together we set the lowest possible price you will accept. At the auction, the price goes up from there.
#6 YOU DONíT HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE IF THE BUYER CAN QUALIFY FOR A LOAN after you sign the contract and possibly back out of the contract up to 4 weeks later if they canít get a loan.
#5 THERE ARE NO CONTINGENCIES, (i.e.) selling other property, inspections, Etc. Buyers have inspections done before the auction.
#4 THE HOME IS SOLD "AS-IS". The buyer canít come back later and say something was wrong and they want you to fix it.
#3 THE BUYER MUST DEPOSIT A 5% NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE AUCTION. A CASHIERS CHECK IS SHOWN BEFORE THE AUCTION.
#2 BUYERS GO TO AN AUCTION TO BUY, NOT TO LOOK! They are disappointed when they are outbid!
AND THE NUMBER #1 REASON TO AUCTION YOUR HOME IS THE LOW COMMISSION, about half of what a realtor will charge!
