Q. How much do you think it will bring? What if I don’t get offered what I want, do I have to sell it?
A. The best answer is “Fair Market Value.” We don’t know what the property will bring until the sale is over. Through our marketing campaign, we ensure your property is showcased to all potential buyers in the marketplace the day of your sale. You, as the seller, reserve the right to reject the final offer.
Q. Why sell my house at an auction rather than list it? Isn’t that a desperate measure?
A. Why put a price on your property and limit the value? Why put your life on hold while waiting for someone to make an offer. Why inconvenience yourself for showings? Why wait for loan approval or a qualified buyer? Why wait for a home inspection? Why wait?
The auction method is the only way to realize the full value of your home or property and gives you the ability to get on with your life. You take control of the sales process. You set the date and time that your property will sell, as well as the terms and conditions.
