We sell both residential and commercial real estate at Auction. The Auction method is an effective tool for selling all types of properties, from elegant estate properties, to fine homes in modern communities, to condos in peak condition, to rentals and diamonds-in-the-rough that may need serious rehabbing. Our experience includes many Estate dispersals of real estate as well as the sale of many private homes. Whether you are an Executor of an Estate or the owner of a home, farm or commercial property, we would be happy to discuss the Auction process with you and determine the options that best fit your needs.
The Security of a Reserve Amount
You may offer the property with a reserve amount, giving you security the final sale price will meet your expectations.
Only Qualified Buyers Participate
A sizeable, non-refundable down payment deposit is made by the Buyer at the conclusion of the Auction. This deposit is your security that our new Buyer has sufficient funds to complete the sale.
You Set the Date and Time
An Auction brings our Buyers to the table on your timeframe; avoiding prolonged periods of time waiting for an offer. Setting a date and time puts an end to the expenses of insurance, mortgage payments, utilities, taxes and maintenance.
The Auction takes place 30-45 days after listing and the closing takes place 45 days after the Auction. Closing is 75-90 days from day of listing.
As Is, Where Is
All my properties are offered "As Is, Where Is.” The property sells in its current state and condition on Auction day.
The property is offered with no contingencies. Sellers are not asked to paint, install, fix or repair anything. Prospective Buyers are welcome to perform a whole-house inspection; however, the nature of an Auction sale eliminates the Sellers being presented with a lengthy list of repairs deemed necessary by the Buyer.
