Auctioning a House
What You Should Know About Auctioning Your House
If you’re like many real-estate owners, listing and selling your house sounds like a lengthy and frustrating hassle. Endless showings, open houses, canceled appointments and poorly qualified buyers make the sales process too time consuming and, sometimes, costly. When you auction your house with Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group, you’ll enjoy numerous benefits — as well as the security that comes with knowing your home sold at true market value.
Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group isn’t just your best source for selling standalone, single-family homes and duplexes. We can also help you auction townhomes and mobile homes. Our team includes skilled real estate professionals who have a thorough understanding of your local market and how it pertains to auctioning all types of residential properties, including townhouses and mobile homes.
How Does Auctioning My Real Estate Work?
Auctioning a house accelerates the sale process, saves you money and protects your long-term financial interests. When you work with Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group, you’ll benefit from:
- Serious, prepared buyers who are ready to make a deal.
- A 99% successful rate of closing.
- No contingency, as-is sale protection.
- Transfer tax savings — transfer charges are paid by the buyer (Pennsylvania buyers only).
- The peace of mind that comes from knowing when your house will sell, with all potential buyers in one place at one time.
- Control over the terms and conditions of the sale that eliminates long-term carrying charges.
- Not having ongoing, unscheduled showings that negatively affect your quality of life.
How Residential and Home Auctions Work
If you have a single- or multifamily home, town house, mobile-home park or any other residential property you’d like to sell at auction, the first step is to contact us to schedule a free consultation. Our experienced residential real estate auctioneers will explain the entire process from start to finish and answer all your questions. We’ll gather all the relevant details about your property and develop a comprehensive auction strategy that will deliver the fastest results. We’ll also discuss commission structures, costs and fees at this time.
We’ll also use the information obtained from the consultation to create a custom-tailored auction and marketing proposal designed to attract a high volume of qualified buyers to your event. Our home auctioneers are familiar with the publications and other tools and resources that deliver the biggest bang for the marketing buck. We can target your marketing strategy to local, regional, national or even global buyers or any combination — whichever makes the most sense for your situation.
Most of our clients have some knowledge of the live auction format, where buyers physically travel to the property and make bids in person. An increasingly popular alternative is the online auction, where buyers in remote locations can bid via computer, tablet or smartphone. We can set up and manage a home auction in either format or a combination of the two. All events are conducted by experienced residential real estate auctioneers who are dedicated to helping our clients achieve their selling objectives.
Sell Town Houses at Auction
Townhouses appeal to specific types of buyers, such as a single person who’s looking for an affordable starter home or a retired couple seeking to downsize from a larger house. The staff at Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group includes seasoned experts who understand what it takes to sell townhouses quickly at auction. We know how to develop a targeted marketing plan that will attract the right type of qualified buyer to your property. You will be able to avoid the time and hassle involved with listing your property with a real estate agent who may not be familiar with the nuances of this unique, specialized market.
One of the difficulties with selling a town house is distinguishing the home from similar properties in the area that are also on the market — maybe even in your own residential community. When you auction a town house with us, you are assured of getting the professional marketing assistance you need to let prospective buyers know what makes your home different from the rest.
We also know how to highlight the unique features that make your home stand out. In addition, we will help you emphasize the numerous amenities that are often found in or near many townhouse communities such as parks, fitness centers, playgrounds and walking trails.
Sell Mobile Home Parks at Auction
Mobile Home Parks appeal to a specialized segment of the market. However, it can be difficult to find a competent, qualified real estate agent who is willing to work with sellers. For this reason, it can make much more sense to auction a mobile home park instead of listing them with an agent. When you sell a mobile home park at auction, you can sell it quickly and stand a better chance of getting the true market value. For Realtors with a current mobile home park listing, teaming up with an auctioning company could be the answer you need when looking to sell your client’s park.
Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group knows what it takes to auction mobile home parks in virtually any type of real estate market. We have a proven track record of successfully helping our clients sell their properties for top dollar — and on a hassle-free, no-contingency basis. We will aggressively market your mobile home park to thousands of prospective buyers at once, preventing the need for repeated property showings. What’s more, you won’t waste precious time searching for an agent who truly understands this highly specialized real estate market.
Why Buyers Love the Property Auction
Buyers love working with Fortna Auctioneers & Marketing Group — and not because they believe they’re going to purchase property at a below-market price. Buyers work with us because:
- A fair price is reached through an open, fair and competitive bidding process.
- Auction properties typically close faster than listed properties — usually within 45 days — and with the closing date already known.
- They know the seller is ready to sell.
- The auction eliminates a potentially lengthy negotiation process.
- They receive comprehensive property information with a customized due-diligence packet.
