Types of Auctions 

There are basically two types of auction sales: absolute and reserve.


An absolute sale means that the property will sell to the last and highest bidder on sale day regardless of price.


A reserve sale means that the owner or some other entity (such as a court or bank) has placed a reserve value which the property will have to fetch before it can be sold.


An absolute auction creates much more excitement, draws larger crowds and usually brings higher prices. Naturally some seller are reluctant to list “absolute” but if they have the equity and the courage, it is usually in their best interest to sell absolute and take advantage of the tremendous advertising boost that “absolute auction” has.


It is their auctioneer’s job to use his expertise and contacts to insure that there are bidders at the sale and a competitive environment that yields a fair market value for the seller and the buyer.


A reserve auction lets everybody sleep easier, including the buyer’s. In some cases, it is necessary to sell reserve, but usually prices and attendance will be better if the sale can be structured absolute.


A successful auction requires a seller who is sincerely motivated; a seller that has a reason for selling and a desire to get on with their life. When you couple that kind of seller with a professional auction company, you will have a sale that works well.
