Hopefully there will be more acceptance of using the auction format to sell houses.
All that is needed are sellers who will accept whatever price the market will bear. Will the sellers trust that an auction would produce the same results (or better) than a traditional listing?
Another benefit of an auction is that the sellers know what day the house is going to sell, and can make plans accordingly. It’s usually inconvenient to sell your house, at least you would have some time parameters. Then take two weekends off so we can conduct open house leading up to the auction, and on a Sunday afternoon at 1:00pm we’ll gather everyone around and see what the market will bear.
If there were sellers willing to try, I’d like to help. If we can follow a few auctions that work so people might feel more comfortable with the process, maybe we could start something here:
