What happens if my home does not sell at auction?

While ensuring a successful sale at auction is our ultimate goal, we cannot guarantee a result. Not all homes will sell at auction but through the process, we are able to determine the level of interest along with feedback from all of the potential buyers who saw your home. This information allows us to work with your real estate agent to determine the next best steps. Sometimes there are interested parties who are interested in negotiating after the auction. Other times, the market feedback will allow your real estate agent to list your home for a competitive price and sell the home soon after the auction process has ended. The important factor to remember is that there are always options and we will work hard to provide you with the best possible results.
