Range of Services
Our strength is in our ability and willingness to tailor our services
to your situation:
- On-site auctions
Preparation, advertising and execution of an auction on premises, including the real
estate if desired. The client can be as involved or detached as he chooses - working
right there with us, to completely uninvolved. An entire household or estate can be
liquidated in a single day.
- Clean outs
Removal of any or all personal property from a premises on a fee-for-service basis.
Property is dispositioned into various categories for sale or disposal. One of several
variations of this method will work well when a house is placed with or already sold
by a real estate agent. Again, the client can be involved at any level. We will clean
the premises and prepare it for sale if required. Our goal is for the client to end
up "in the black" at the end of the process.
For smaller quantities of antiques and collectibles.
Performed on a fee per hour basis.
- Real Estate
Auction method applies equally well to the sale of real estate at a lower cost than
conventional reality. Real Estate is offered at auction "with reserve," meaning
that if the bidding does not bring the minimum amount that the seller is willing to
accept, the property will not be sold.
Costs are determined by the material and the circumstances. On-sites
sales are conducted on a commission, with the seller bearing the expense
of advertising, labor and other requirements. Settlement is the same
day for on-site auctions. Consignments are sold on commission with a
reasonable per hour/per load rate charged for clean out where applicable.
Settlement is within the week after the consignment auction. The professional
services included in the commission are our access to established lines
of advertising in all local newspapers and many regional and national
specialty publications, a database of buyers and their specialties,
an extensive library of reference material, and an email list of over
400 registered buyers who receive advertisements of the client's auction
directly on their home computers, and posting of auctions on AuctionZip, a nationwide online auction search.
* We do not charge a buyers' premium at our auctions.
