Graystone Realty and Auction, Inc. is the only company in California and Arizona with an unique and comprehensive program that sells Real Estate and Personal Property, including art, jewelry, furniture and vehicles in one morning on a date chosen by the Seller. We have over 30 years’ experience and have helped over 1300 real estate clients. Historically our clients are seniors that are downsizing and heirs of estates.
For seniors, it may be facing changes due to aging, a sudden change in health or circumstances, loss of spouse, or loneliness. For heirs, it could be facing an overwhelming task of selling the real estate and all personal property amidst emotional trauma, family discord, inexperience or distance that complicates an already difficult situation. Many of the homes have not been updated and have accumulated 40-50 years of a family's personal possessions. Graystone is an expert in this arena. It is a complete program that provides relief when too many times there is little to none available.
While Graystone can sell real estate the traditional way, our years of experience have found that the auction process can save time, money and stress for those in need of selling everything in a timely fashion without sacrificing the chance to get a fair market price for the real estate and personal property.
Graystone’s unique program assists the seller(s) with cleaning, staging, packing, moving (if needed), and valuing the real estate and personal property, which also helps the family in deciding what to keep and what to sell.
Real Estate: The sale is conducted live at the property as well as online. Marketing and real estate Previews are usually conducted over a 3-4 week period. Bidders must have completed a Bidder Registration Packet before the auction starts. Escrow will typically close in 7-30 days. As opposed to a conventional listing, bids are displayed in real time, so the buyer is not left wondering how much more they could have offered to get the property. The transparency benefits both the Buyer and Seller.
Sellers appreciate the convenience and timing that Graystone provides. Our process can help avoid the potential prolonged costs of having the real estate on the market for an indeterminate amount of time. No lock-boxes or inconvenient showings. There are no staging and repair expenses incurred unless it is agreed that it makes sense to take care of certain items before the sale. Sellers benefit from the fact that the Buyer’s Premium covers Graystone Auctions’ costs when selling the real estate and enjoy some of the lowest fees charged for the sale of personal property when the real estate is also being sold. Graystone has the experience to know where and how to market real estate and personal property.
