Our multiple methods of selling real estate for our clients include:

The Auction Marketing Method:

SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES real estate auctioneers have the experience and expertise to represent your interests!

  • No arbitrary limit on sale price! Listing real property conventionally necessitates placing a price on the property, thereby effectively placing a cap on the property’s final sale price. A SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES Public Auction or Online Auction often results in a higher than anticipated final sale price.
  • No negotiating! The property sells with no negotiating over non-price issues.
  • You can sell your property only once! Our Public and Online Auction Methods provide effective means of bringing all potential buyers together at one location, whether physically or virtually. The resulting bidding atmosphere is often a lively and competitive one.
  • And why Internet Auctions? While not every SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES Auction features an online component, many buyers appreciate the convenience and the anonymity that a SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES state of the art Online Auction naturally provides.
  • Innovative Sales Tools! Using the most up to date techniques and technology, including the Real Estate Multi-Parcel Auction Method, SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES provides both sellers and buyers with options to help them achieve their goals, thus providing each client and customer with the highest level of service to help them maximize their results.

Types of Real Estate Auctions:

  1. Absolute Auction Method: In selling Real Estate by the Absolute Auction Method, the Seller is legally required to sell the item to the highest bidder, regardless of the final bid price, once the bidding has commenced. The main advantage of an absolute auction is that it generates maximum response from the market. Since a sale is guaranteed regardless of the price, buyer excitement and participation are heightened. As a result, the price of the property can be maximized.
  2. Auction with Reserve Method: By selling Real Estate using the Auction with Reserve Method, the Seller reserves the right to accept or reject the final bid price. The main advantage of an auction with reserve is that the Seller is not obligated to accept a price other than one that is entirely acceptable. Therefore, the Seller is protected from an unsatisfactory price result!
  3. Sealed Bid Process: Whether selling Real Estate or any other asset, a SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES Sealed Bid Process maintains appropriate privacy between prospective purchasers, often prompting purchasers who may be willing to spend much more than their competition to bid closer to their maximum price point than they would during a traditional Public or Online Auction.

Conventional Listing Method:

In selling Real Estate by the Conventional Listing Method, SHERIDAN & ASSOCIATES’ experience and expertise in marketing assets and negotiating contracts greatly benefits the Seller:

  • Maximum exposure! The main advantage of a Conventional Listing is that it provides the maximum exposure to prospective buyers since the property is available for purchase at any time during the listing period.
  • Flexibility! Almost anything is negotiable using our Convention Listing method, and this provides the greatest flexibility for the Seller and Buyer to negotiate a successful contract.
