I have been in the luxury real estate auction business for a long period of time and don't think I have ever seen so many sellers downsizing.  As I mention here often, most of the luxury home sellers I work with are not distressed and do not have to sell.  Their primary reasons for sale are retiring, moving, downsizing, health issues, or some combination of these.

However, I am seeing a real trend of downsizing.  Clients of late have been living in homes ranging from 8,000 sq. ft. to 18,000 sq. ft.  They are tired of the constant maintenance and excessive recurring expenses that come with owning large homes like this.  All have had their home listed for an extended period of time with few, if any, legitimate offers.  Some are moving while yet others are experiencing health issues.  Does this sound like you or your client?

If so, why not take a look at working with me on a non-distressed, high-end auction event?  Yes, there are buyers out there who are looking to upsize.  What better way to capture this audience than to conduct a high-profile marketing campaign coupled with a date-certain event?  The date-certain event forces affluent, busy, end-user buyers to react by giving them a deadline.

Is a luxury home auction for me or for my client?  Who is the best luxury home auction company for me or for us? I am happy to have a dialogue regarding such.  Reach out anytime.

So a luxury property auction is something you are considering?  I'm sure you have questions like:

Can I place a reserve or does it have to sell regardless of price?

How is the commission structured?

Who is the best luxury home auction company?

These are the top three questions I field from prospective non-distressed sellers on a weekly basis.  Whether you are an agent with a client considering an auction or a private seller seeking professional guidance, look no further.  I am happy to offer expert advice, just ask.  Contact me anytime with your questions.  My advice is priceless and my experience in this field is second to none.

Break Your Dependence on Traditional Listings Only.

On this Independence Day, let's talk about the common dependence of both realtors and private sellers on the traditional method of sale only.  Yes, it is the most common and is best suited for most sellers but there is an alternative- non distressed auction.

When most people hear the word auction, they think distress, fire sale, etc.  While there certainly are those types of real estate auctions, there is also such a thing as a non-distressed auction.  Who would be a good candidate for such?  How about someone who does not have to sell and often times have little or no debt on their property.  Something has usually changed in their life with the usual suspects being downsizing, moving, retiring or there may be health issues.  They have usually had the property listed for some time with little or no legitimate offers.  The sale of their home is the one thing keeping them from moving on with their life.

Something like a luxury home auction forces affluent buyers to react by using a date-certain event, something that is not present in a traditional sale.  The high bidder places a non-refundable deposit in escrow and has 30 days to close period, end of story.  The property sells for full market value.  The agent receives a fee for referring the deal and the buyer broker, if one, is compensated as well.  The seller is able to close the chapter of their life and everyone is happy.

Want to learn more?  Need to know who the best luxury home auction companies are?  Reach out to me anytime to discuss.  My advice is complimentary and my experience in the field priceless.

Two Most Important Decisions Regarding a Luxury Home Auction.

Sunday, 04 May 2014 Category Luxury Property Auction

So, you've decided that a non-distressed luxury home auction may be for you or for you and your client. What do you think the two most important decisions you will make are?

First and foremost, the luxury real estate auction company you decide to use is, in my opinion, the most important decision.  Are you going to go with the firm that seems to be the best via a simple online search or are you really going to dig into the selection process?  Who is legitimate and ethical and who is not?  I'm here to help with that- just ask.

Second, the manner in which you decide to offer the property is critical to the success of your event.  Should you conduct a "straight" or unpublished reserve, a published minimum bid or a legitimate absolute auction?  It really depends on you, your auction savyness, and the auction company handling the event.

Reach out to me anytime to discuss these or any other topics related to non-distressed higher end home auctions.  My services are complimentary and my advice priceless.
