Frank Stevens, licensed auctioneer for property and real estate
South Jersey Estate Liquidators and Appraisal Service handles your live auction from beginning to end. We stage the auction and staff it with runners, clerks and cashiers. For each lot, Frank coaxes the highest price from bidders. At the end of the auction, you receive an itemized list of each item and the amount it sold for, along with a check from an escrow account for your share of the proceeds.
Real estate auctions
Over three decades, Frank Stevens has successfully sold hundreds of pieces of property through real estate auctions, including homes, businesses, commercial properties, vacant lots, wooded lots and farms.
Here is why you should consider a real estate auction:
1. No risk
You set the reserve price — the lowest amount that you will accept in your real estate auction. Frank Stevens does a market analysis of current and comparable sales and then suggests a reserve price, but the decision is yours. You have the right to accept or reject any and all bids. As a result, there is no risk to you.
2. Property sold as-is
You do not need to make improvements or repairs. Prospective buyers, of course, may retain a professional to do a property inspection, but they pay the inspection fee. There is no cost to you.
3. Competitive bidding
A real estate auction creates competitive bidding among interested buyers, and there is no ceiling price. We have frequently been able to meet or exceed the desired sale price or appraised value.
4. Save money on commissions
South Jersey Liquidators and Appraisal Service earns a commission of 2 percent to 3 percent in real estate auctions, which is much less than what traditional real estate brokers want. You may save thousands of dollars.
To ensure a successful real estate auction, be sure to allow a lead time of four to five weeks. This is necessary for proper advertising and marketing, and expedites your sale. For more information, call Frank Stevens at 609-451-2400.
