National Auctioneers Association states, " Auctions offer a fast-pace way in determining what price the market brings for your property. With the combination of solid pre-sale marketing and the auctioneer's ear-catching chant, you could have enthusiastic, attentive buyers competing to purchase your property. Often, items sell for far more than their estimated value." "In comparison, placing an ad in the classifieds, or posting a "For Sale By Owner" sign, may garner only a lukewarm response or "tire kickers" just looking. It may take months before you finally sell your property, and even then you may have to accept a price much lower than you had hoped."
