How a Real Estate Auction Benefits the Buyer AND the Seller

how a real estate auction benefits the buyer and the seller header

How a Real Estate Auction Benefits the Buyer AND the Seller

Real estate auctions are one of the best ways that you can buy or sell property! They are quick and painless and allow both the buyer and the seller to get a great deal for their assets. In a real estate auction, a seller works with an auction house to sell their home or other piece of property to a pool of bidders. While it may seem like only one party (either the bidder or the seller) will gain the most from the auction depending on the property, real estate auctions provide many benefits to both the buyer and the seller!

Benefits for the Seller:

1. Very little work on the seller’s end

In a traditional real estate sale, the seller generally feels a lot of pressure to keep up with the realtor throughout the process, will find themselves worrying about the offers that they receive. Not to mention having to deal with negotiations surrounding the condition of the property. Not so with a real estate auction! An auction house will take care of everything for the seller, making sure that everything is under control so that the seller can just sit back and wait for the bids to come.

2. It is a fast process

Traditional real estate sales can be a long drawn out process. Between home showings, realtor meetings, and buyer meetings, the time frame can vary drastically. However, in an auction, there is typically only a short period of time from when they contact an auction house to when the house is sold. This is great when a seller needs to sell fast – or when you just don’t want to have to hold onto a unwanted property longer than you have to.

3. Property is Sold As-Is

When conducting a traditional real estate sale, a buyer will often request that the seller fix different aspects of the house in order to receive their offer. This can drag a seller into a wide variety of costs that they weren’t planning on, as well as creating a hassle for them as they deal with contractors, inspectors and the potential buyer. In an auction, the home is sold as-is, which eliminates all those complications, allowing the process to be easier and much faster than it might otherwise be.

4. You don’t have to worry about showings

When selling property in an auction there will typically be only a few inspection times (that you will know in advance) that you can easily work your schedule around, so that potential buyers can come to look at your property. This is a lot easier than having to constantly reorganize your schedule as different buyers come to look at your home in a traditional real estate sale.

5. You know the timeline

Like we said, a traditional real estate auction can be a drawn-out process lasting many, many months. This is often draining as a seller must deal with the ins and outs of the sale, as well as keeping up payments for both their new home as well as the property they are trying to sell! With an auction, a seller knows the day and time that their property will be sold to whoever the highest bidder ends up being, allowing them to rest easy.

6. Auctions reach a wide range of bidders

When selling through an auction house your property is presented to hundreds of bidders that are interested in buying property. Your auction will reach a larger demographic of people interested in buying and lets you gain a large audience quickly instead of waiting for individuals to find your property.

wide range of bidders

7. You will receive the true market value for your property

Because you have bidders bidding against each other to determine the final price of your property, you are able to determine the true market value and get a higher amount than you may expected to receive in a general sale. Plus, you don’t have to worry about negotiations – the bidders will take care of that for you!

Benefits for the Buyer:

1. It is a fast process

Buyers want to get through the buying process just as much as the seller wants to get through the selling process! Real estate auctions allow you to buy property quickly – you could even buy a piece of property in a single day if you choose not to attend an inspection (but you should probably go to one). Online auctions let you see a property, decide if you’re interested, and close the deal as soon as the auction ends without any fuss.

2. You Determine What You Pay

While you would know what you would be paying in a traditional real estate sale, you will have an even better understanding of what you will be paying in an auction. You don’t have to worry about negotiations with the seller, you can pick your maximum price and stick to it with the understanding that you won’t have to bend to the will of the seller. You might go back and forth in a bidding war with another bidder, which will raise the price, but you can always choose to drop out. Auctions also give you the transparency of what other people are offering to pay that you wouldn’t receive in a traditional sale. If you know the bid increment, you won’t have to worry if you’ve put in a lower offer than someone else. Everyone always knows who has the highest bid as well as what it is, allowing you to evaluate what you are willing to pay.

3. You know when the sale closes

The buying process can drag on and on in a traditional sale, but with an auction it is easy to know when the process will be over. You know the start and end date of the auction and will know the results as soon as the auction has closed. Plain and simple. It’s also reassuring to know that when the auction has closed the sale is over. Since the seller has agreed to sell to the highest bidder, they cannot accept another offer after picking you, which is not guaranteed in a traditional real estate sale.

4. You will pay true market value

Because the final bidding price will be dictated purely by what you and your fellow bidders are bidding, the true value of the property will be reflected in the price. You will be able to leave the auction knowing that you got the best deal you could on the home, commercial property or land. Many times, you will pay a lower price than what the seller would have asked because the market will have dictated a lower value for the property. This is a fantastic way to get either a home or land for an affordable price!

Real estate auctions are incredibly beneficial for both the buyer and the seller. Between the speed and ease of sale, it is surprising that more people don’t opt to buy and sell property through auctions.

Can An Online Real Estate Auction Surpass My Asking Price?

Can An Online Real Estate Auction Surpass My Asking Price?

Is a “with reserve” real estate auction or an “absolute” real estate auction best for me?

Selling real estate via live auction has been popular for many years – and with technology continuing to advance, selling property via online auction has gained popularity rapidly and does not seem to be slowing down. If you have never sold any property via online auction, you might have a lot of questions regarding how the process works and how much your property will go for, the risks involved and how involved you must be in the process. To read more about how the entire process works from beginning to end, check out our blog, “How To Sell Your Building In A Commercial Property Auction”
One question that is often asked when an individual is considering selling their home on an online auction is whether the bidders can surpass the asking price of the seller. The answer in short is ABSOLUTELY! This is what the auction process is all about – the best value for any item being sold, including real estate.

When talking about online real estate auctions, there are generally two types, “with reserve” which as stated above, means that the seller will require a certain amount for the property to be sold or “absolute” meaning that the property will require no minimum bid and will sell no matter what the highest bid ends at. The reserve price is not considered an “asking price” although the two can overlap in some aspects, and it might be hard to differentiate – you should also be aware that a reserve price is going to be different than the “starting price” which, obviously stated in the name is the price that the auction will start at. This price will most likely be more around the realm of what the seller hopes to get out of the auction. If you have made the decision to sell your commercial or residential property on an online auction, you’ll be faced with the decision of which type is best for you to sell your property on, with reserve? Or on an absolute real estate auction? There are pros and cons to both absolute auctions as well as with reserve auctions, and either one could be right for you depending on your specific situation. For example, If you have been sitting on a piece of property for awhile or if there isn’t a lot of attraction because of the state of the home or property you might be willing to sell via absolute auction.

with reserve real estate auction

Selling your property “absolute” can be more stressful but many times will result in more bidders and higher prices for your property! Absolute auctions are also going to require less involvement on the part of the seller, yet might require some compromise in the final price of your property. It’s extremely unlikely that after the time for bidding has ended that it would not be sold which is great, although the final price might be different than what you expected. When it comes to selling your property with a reserve, the pros and cons look a little bit different. When a property is sold with a reserve, the property does not sell beneath the sellers reserve amount, if the auction finishes and does not meet the reserve, the seller can do what they want with it. If you are looking to sell some property but will not accept an offer less than “x” amount, then selling with reserve is probably more up the alley for you. You will get to decide what the lowest amount is that you are willing to accept for your property which also might weed out any bidders who are not serious about purchasing the property for its actual value. Selling a property via reserve auction might require more involvement on the part of the seller, this includes of course deciding your reserve price, as well as possibly lowering the reserve based on bidder activity and other auction details. The downside to choosing the with reserve type of auction is that you might not have any bidders that are willing to pay that reserve amount. If this is the case you could lower your reserve, decide to either accept a bid that might be below the reserve amount, or you could choose to not sell your property at all. 

Ultimately, the choice is yours as to whether you sell your property with reserve or absolute based on your specific needs for the property and how much you are willing to accept for the price on the prices that you hope to receive as well as what is realistic for what the property is worth.
