Auctions Are Exciting!

An Auction offers great opportunities to buy and sell property and is generally recognized as the purest method of determining value. Any item or property is only worth what someone is willing to pay. Buyers bid against each other: winner take all!

Auctions offer many benefits. It is in the best interest of all Sellers to consider an Auction as a best course of action. Here’s why:

  • Auctions are the best way to determine true value
  • The excitement and competitiveness that an auction creates assures you of receiving the highest value
  • Auctions allow you to protect yourself with RESERVE Prices or MINIMUM starting bids
  • The Buyer is aware of what the other bids are and all guesswork is thus taken out of the equation
  • Our ONLINE AUCTION SERVICE allows you to get your property in front of a much larger buyer pool
