Sold Auction
Why shouldn't I just list my property with a Realtor or sell it myself?

  In some cases this might be the best method for your property and specific situation, however, if your property qualifies for the auction method there can be numerous benefits: 

  1. Your property can be sold in as little as 30 days on the day you want. Listed properties many times sit on the market for months without an offer.
  2. You eliminate negotiations with the potential buyers.
  3. There are only one or two open houses or “previews”, so you're not bothered with people looking through your home at all hours of the day.
  4. Auction properties are sold in "as is" condition with no contingencies. You are not required to fix or upgrade anything prior to selling your property if you choose.
  5. The title insurance is paid by the buyer. In traditional real estate transactions, title insurance is paid by the sellers.
  6. The price you receive for your property is based on a competitive bidding process that isn't locked into a fixed listed price; allowing for an uncapped ceiling price point potential.
  7. The seller does not pay a commission. Typically, with a Realtor listed property, a 6-7% commission is required to be paid by the seller.
