A lot of folks are saying that an online-only auction gets results that are just as good as a live auction. I beg to differ, and I think you can see why in this little video clip that shows the energy we put into a live auction. As you watch, there are two important things to remember: (1) You’re only seeing about half the bidders, because the others are watching all the action and bidding over the Internet, and (2) the live auction reflects weeks of hard work at getting photos, putting up signs, conducting due diligence and and preparing each property for sale.
Best of all, you don’t have to be a banker or big portfolio manager to sell in a John Dixon auction. The auction you’re watching actually had a number of different sellers, some of whom sold only one or two properties. By combining the resources of multiple sellers, we enable virtually anybody with real estate to sell it at auction.
