Selling at Auction – Why Auctions Work so Well

  • Sell Your Property Quickly: Get top dollar in 30 days when considering time value of money. Buyers come together for one big competitive showdown.
  • High Holding Cost Avoided: 15% – 20% per year, with 8% or more loss every month from non-performing loans. Thousands of dollars paid in taxes, insurance, and maintenance. The sooner the property sells the greater the bottom line dollar.
  • Value Can Be Demonstrated: Traditional sales set the price and bargain down. The auction process demonstrates the value and then “bargains up”.
  • Auctions Draw Attention: You create a market for your property. Exposure is enormous compared to conventional efforts. More people are exposed to the property during the “Auction Promotion”.
  • Auctions Freeze the Market: It is almost impossible for properties being conventionally marketed to compete with a property being auctioned.
  • Urgency to Buy is Created: Buy this property now or it won’t be available later. When the ads start and the signs and banners go up, people know the property is going to be sold on Auction Day.

In today’s ever changing market, auctions are not only for distressed and foreclosed properties;
they are considered “a tool of first choice” by the knowledgeable seller,
not an avenue of last resort.


If you’re wondering whether the auction method is suitable for your property, just ask yourself the following questions;

  1. Do you have a strong motivation to sell your property?
  2. Do you want to obtain the maximum price and the best terms for your property?
  3. Are you ready for a non-contingent contract?
  4. Would you like to sell and close on your property within 60 days?
  5. Are you willing to accept what today’s market will produce for your property?
  6. Do you want to “close out” your current project and jump start a new one?
  7. Do you want to eliminate the oppressive property carrying costs?
  8. Do you need to sell before “off season?”
  9. Have you been left an Estate to dissolve?
  10. Are you considering a business liquidation?
  11. Do you have a foreclosure to perform or a “Real Estate Owned” portfolio?
  12. Do you have a deadline to sell your property, but want a competitive sale?
  13. Do you have surplus assets you want to sell quickly and competitively?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions,
that means the auction method may be suitable for you!

I and several of my clients have worked with Robert H. Ewald and the people at Ewald Auctions for many years now. They have always conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism. The information provided to my clients prior to conducting the auction is thorough and complete which helps the auction process run smoothly. The advertising and information provided to prospective purchasers prior to the auctions provide complete information about the property being sold. The auctions themselves are run smoothly and allow for all participants to understand the auction process. Their results have consistently exceeded expectaions.

Over the last 10+ years, I have had Ewald Auctions handle cases ranging from Real Estate and commercial assets, to vehicles, jewelry and personal property. They handled every aspect of business ranging from inventories down to the final auctioning of assets. Their professionalism is unmatched in their industry. Their record keeping is exactly what I, as a United States Trustee, and the Federal Bankruptcy court require in Bankruptcy sales. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss any aspect of their services in detail.

I have used Bob Ewald as an auctioneer and appraiser for over 20 years in both federal bankruptcy cases and matters outside of bankruptcy. I have always found him, his entire staff and organization to be the upmost professionals, fair in value and costs charged and incredibly reputable if needed as a witness in Federal Court proceedings. I will continue to use him and his business in the future.
