Selling your real estate online can be very beneficial. There is a growing amount of people buying online everyday, just for the simple fact that it is convenient to them. Increasing numbers of serious bidders make the atmosphere much more competitive for your real estate as well. People buy real estate online for the convenience and ease contrary to traditional auctions. Advantagelandco.com is a place where people can bid from anywhere around the world with a click of a button.
Most economists believe that the "auction" is the best technique in achieving the best price for real estate settling at market value. It is also the most effective way of marketing anything that buyers may place a different value on. Allowing all interested buyers to compete for your property, through open bidding, is the best way you can be assured that you have received the best value.
You, as the seller, will be able to set a "reserve price." This is the minimum price you would accept to sell your property. In the event that your property was bid below your reserve price, you have the option to sell your property. If the price meets or exceeds your reserve price, you will be obligated to sell your real estate to the highest bidder. The reserve price eliminates your risk as a seller if it does not bring your desired price.
There must be a plan from the beginning for marketing your property. With over ten years experience in the real estate industry and now affiliated with United Country we will market to an audience not only in the local market, but across America.
