Properties are generally auction, sold and closed within 30 to 45 days. Pre-title work is done prior to auction date. Auction generally takes place on a specific date and at a specific time. There is a definite time of sale. The owner has the right to refuse any and all bids. Seller can set maximum market value for the home. The property can be sold for higher than the market value in the last few minutes of sale. An auction creates an aggressive marketing program that increases interest and visibility. The seller knows exactly when the property will sell. Creates competition among buyers-auction price can exceed the price of a negotiated sale. Seller requires potential buyers to pre-qualify for financing. An auction takes the seller out of the negotiation process. In an auction, the property is exposed to a large number of pre-qualified prospects.
First, thing to remember is the type of house that you want to select, should it be single house, apartment, town house or big mansion. Each type has its plus and minus, like in apartment there is no privacy and major changes cannot be done. But in case of single houses and mansions, remodeling can be done as there is more privacy. But these houses are most costly than other type. If you have kids and old people see to it there are schools, hospital and safe neighborhood. If you love gardening, check out for large yard. If you are working, then look in for a small yard. Communication and transportation is another important factor to be considered before buying a home. If any of your family members are allergic to dust, animals, chemicals, certain type of wood and other things take a note of these. If you are planning to take a pet, a yard should be your top priority. Check that the neighborhood's pets do not disturb you, and your pets do not disturb them.
This is also known as sealed high-bid auction or first price sealed bid auction. In a sealed first price auction the bidders submit one bid in a concealed fashion. The bid amount is not reveled to anyone. The seller compares all the bids, and the highest bidder wins the bid and he pays the bid amount to the seller. Another type of bid is sealed second price auction. This is also known as vickrey auction. This type of auction is used at the gold exchange. A first sealed bid format has two parts-a bidding period in which participants submit their bids, and a resolution phase in which the bids are opened and the winner determined. First price sealed bid is also known as discriminatory auction when multiple items are being auctioned.
A reserve price is the lowest price at which you are willing to sell your property. If you don't want to sell your property below a certain price, you can set up a reserve price. Bidders are not told disclosed the reserve price, but bidders will see to it that your auction has a reserve price and see whether or not the reserve has been met. If a bidder does not meet that price, you're not obligated to sell your property. The Reserve price option is only visible for online auction format; it is not visible for fixed price or classified ad listings. Many sellers have found that too high a starting price discourages interest in their property, while an attractively low starting price makes them vulnerable to selling at an unsatisfactorily low price. A reserve price helps with this.
