WHY SELL AT AUCTION? 

When you sell your personal property at auction, you put your problems directly into the experts hands. We analyze your property and consider its most important features, prospective market, expected price, and the most effective way to promote its sale. All this is carefully done on a definite schedule, insuring a smooth, efficient operation and a successful sale.

If we are selling real estate, we aggressively market for approximately 6 weeks, hold open houses, prepare bidder and broker packages, sell the property onsite and require settlement in 30 days. This has become the most popular method of sale today as much of the cost can pass through to the buyer. No more large real estate commissions burdened on the seller.

On sale day, all details for a successful auction will be completed and buyers will be ready to buy.

Rawlings Auction & Appraisal sales and marketing strategy is the ideal means to settle estates, sell businesses, real estate and every type of personal property and salvage. Courts, trustees and businessmen everywhere are convinced that a well-advertised, professionally managed auction is the best way to determine a fair market value.

MORE GOOD REASONS TO SELL AT AUCTION?
 

  • IMMEDIATE TURNAROUND
    An auction is immediate. All items sell in one day at a certain time.
    It is your decision of the time and place - unless your items are part of a consignment auction.





    We as auctioneers will help determine this by reviewing other events in the area that could be a conflict.
    No more selling piece meal using other avenues, all items WILL sell. We will not accept items that we feel will not sell. As that does not benefit you as the seller or our firm.
  • AGGRESSIVE MARKETING
    One of the most important parts of conducting a successful auction is the marketing of the sale item. Advertised properly, your item will sell for market value. We use many different avenues for a successful aggressive marketing campaign. Our auctions regularly bring 300 to 400 bidders.
  • NO NEGOTIATION
    No haggling over the price of merchandise. Once the hammer drops, the item is sold.
  • ITEMS REMAINING AFTER AUCTION AND CLEAN UP
    As professional auctioneers, it is important to us to be as honest as possible in regards to what we feel will sell and what won't. It is of no value to either party to accept items that won't sell and then at day's end have to discard. In most cases, we consult with the seller.
  • COMPETITIVE BIDDING
    There is no better way to sell than by competitive bidding. Many times, because of the excitement and the desire to win the bidding increases substantially. It is an exciting and fun atmosphere and the desire to win can be overwhelming which is what we strive for.
  • ALWAYS A GOOD TIME FOR AN AUCTION
    Good economy, bad economy, the public enjoys a nice auction. Where inside, outside, cold, hot, if the merchandise or property is quality, the people will come. There is no better time to sell or better method of sale.
