The Value of Selling at Auction

Auctions are a unique and valuable way of selling almost any type of personal property.  Some of the most popular auctions are those that involve household

 items, or livestock  or antiques. Auctions also involve automobiles, office

equipment, art, machinery, industrial equipment, and electronics. One very

rapidly growing area is real estate.More and more people are buying and

selling their homes and land by the auction method.


Why are Auctions the best way to sell property?

- Quick Turnaround: An auction is immediate. It happens during a set time and is

  completed during that time. It's quick and efficient.  

- Comprehensive Marketing: Auctioneers use targeted mailing lists, print and radio 

  advertising, as well as sale bills to market their auction sales.

- Competitive Bidding in an Exciting Atmosphere: Crowds of people competing for

  property combined with that lively auction chant makes for some great

  entertainment and fun.

- Buyers Come Prepared to Buy. No Negotiations: When people bid, they make a

  commitment to buy the property at the auction price.

- Auctions Work Well in Both Good and Bad Economic Times: An auction brings fair

  market value, if not more, for any item put across the auction block!
