Benefits of Auctions for Selling Real Estate.

Auctions: a 'Preferred Choice' of Selling Real Estate.

Property Management

Auctions are a great option for selling real estate but not all people desire that type of selling platform.  For that reason, SouthernTrust Estate and Auction Company partners with Mountain Shore Realty to provide the very best in promoting and staging a property for sale.  Also owned and operated by Rob and Miranda, the two companies can guarantee that the service you receive will be consistent and professional no matter the preferred strategy in how you sell or buy your property.  As with auctions, we also dedicate ourselves to providing our clients with an aggressive approach to listing and selling your real estate.  We begin by developing a plan of action based on a professionally formatted price comparable analysis.  We then outline a marketing strategy that reaches to a worldwide audience.  We maintain and track how the property is being shown to the public and offer compensation agreements with agents who bring a buyer to the closing table.  Our team also provides assistance to clients in keeping their properties clean, in mechanical and structural repair, moving logistics, downsizing of personal property, as well as staging and maintaining curb appeal.

Residential and Commercial Auctions are fast becoming the preferred choice of home owners, banks, investors and business management to sell or liquidate their real estate.  Individuals and businesses  alike are realizing the benefits auctions provide over the more traditional method of listing property.  Real estate auctions are no longer considered to be a last resort method of selling homes, buildings or land.  Auctions offer many a low cost, hassle free,  quick 'contract to closing' sale with terms and conditions that  buyers are willing to accept that benefit the seller.
