      How long do I have to wait before I get paid?

You will receive the proceeds form the sale of your property at closing from the Title Company. Auction Boulevard will take care of all the arrangements with the Title Company.

 

What are the advantages of an auction?

  • It is the fastest, most efficient, and most effective way to convert property into cash.
  • Establishes the date, time, and place when the property will sell.
  • Everything sells.
  • Stimulates competitive bidding between motivated buyers.
  • Often achieves more than the anticipated selling price.
  • Eliminates time-consuming buyer/seller negotiations.
  • Focuses the spotlight on your property.
  • Brings many motivated buyers together at the same time and place.
  • It is an effective price setting mechanism that takes into account current market variables.
  • Eliminates the need to speculate as to the fair market value of each individual item.

 

Why do I see so many auctions, specifically real estate auctions in the media/advertising?

Yes, you are not just imagining this.  For 35 years Auction Boulevard staff has been conducting successful real estate auctions.  Today, thousands of auctioneers and real estate brokers are jumping on the “bandwagon”.  Why?  BECAUSE IT WORKS!  The old conventional listing and selling is quickly becoming as extinct as the dinosaur.  The auction industry is a 250 billion dollar industry and growing 8-10% a year.  Find out why proper marketing equates to top dollar for your assets.  Call 970-623-6999 or e-mail doug@AuctionBlvd.com.
