Why choose an Auction to Liquidate?

Auctions are considered to be the cleanest method of conveying goods. Auctions have been used by people throughout history going back thousands of years. The reason, they work! Auctions can solve all the tricky needs of an estate


Estate Auction Service

Benefits of an Auction to sell your personal property:

  • A properly done auction brings together a strong blend of dealers and retail buyers, causing prices to rise to their highest possible levels.
  • An auction can dispose of every item within an estate.
  • An auction allows for a quick distribution of an estate to heirs.
  • Disputes between heirs can be easily settled by each heir bidding on what they would like, knowing the funds will then be distributed back to all the heirs.

Estate Sale vs Estate Auction?

  • At an estate sale, each item has one set price, if negotiations take place the price can only go down.
  • An estate sale may take multiple days to complete, while an estate auction will liquidate items in less than one day.
  • An estate sale may bring in 100 to 150 people over a weekend - An auction, properly advertised will produce twice as many people over the course of the preview and auction
  • For a total estate liquidation, please consider an estate
    auction (our recommendation) or a combination estate sale/estate auction, please contact us for details.

You Are In Control…

You choose the type of auction.  Auctions subject to confirmation have a confidential minimum set by you, the seller.  If no bid meets the reserve, the seller may decline or counter the winning bid.  The seller is in control every step of the way.

Absolute auction is often the choice of sophisticated sellers who have the benefit of both financial and psychological strength.  By setting no minimum, you are guaranteeing that there will be a new owner at the auction’s conclusion.

Absolute auctions, because of their finality, tend to bring you the highest possible fair market value by producing larger turnouts of serious buyers, greater broker participation and more spirited, competitive bidding.
