By Michael Fortna, Fortna Auctioneers Benefits for brokers & realtors selling real estate using the auction method in the U.S. A uctioneer
he auction meth- od is a great way to sell real estate
tion method for both buy- ers and sellers that make it an attractive option. It´s extremely helpful for sellers who are ready to deal with a real estate transaction at that time, for a declared true market value. The auction team you choose to repre- sent your property is a very significant choice that will have a strong effect on your outcome. Benefits of the auction method for brokers and realtors in PA and the
surrounding states: • Competitive Bidding = Higher Prices. By working as a team, having an auction creates the competition of aggressive bidding, bringing top dollar for the property ultimately earning the realtor more money. Together, auctioneers and realtors can sell proper- ties at true market value where no money will be left on the table. • GetMarketWornProp- erties to Settlement . If having trouble with a
current listing that has been on the market for a period of six months or longer, by cooperating with Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group, we will be able to provide the seller with an of- fer and closing within 30-45 days, an accelerated selling process. • Auction is a Must for Time-Crunched Clients. You might have clients that must sell quickly for a multitude of reasons and cannot wait three or four months to receive an offer.
The auction method acceler- ates the selling process. • NoContingencies. One of the greatest advantages to selling real estate at auction is that each property is sold “AS-IS” with NO contingen- cies. This process eliminates wasted time and energy by not having to set up prop- erty inspections, negotiat- ing a new price and terms as a result of the inspection results, lining up financing for a buyer and the list goes on and on. Selling a property at auction brings a serious buyer for the seller. • It´s All about MAR- KETING! The auction method produces results with an explosive market- ing campaign designed spe- cifically for each seller and their budget. Marketing is the key behind any success- ful auction. As a team, we need to expose the property to as many potential buyers as possible. This corrals all potential buyers to com- petitively bid against one another on a specific date and time. Use Fortna Auctioneers to sell real estate by auction in Pennsylvania and the surrounding states.
