Real Estate Broker/Owner - Ad Maker Tool & Real Estate Auction Systems
“Do online real estate auctions really work?” is a common question from anyone new to using online auctions to sell a property. The answer: Yes, absolutely they work! That's why were seeing a huge shift of auctioneers and real estate agents to adjust their selling strategies and start using them....
One common question from real estate agents who are new to online auctions: "Will it work in my area?" The answer is that as long as people in your area have access to the Internet, than yes it will work. If people have no access or only slow dial-up than it will still work, just probably not as ...

There was even one I attended that didn't receive a bid. I really felt bad for the auctioneer and the seller. All the tim...
The most common question asked by a bidder during a real estate online auction is "What is the reserve price?" In other words, what is the bottom line price you will take? Would you ever tell someone your bottom line price when you're selling a property? I hope not. If you do, you've just lost al...
