Real Estate: Having access to an independent real estate and termite inspection and title reportbeforehand benefits buyers and sellers. These reports are for informational purposes only andbuyers are encouraged to do their own due-diligence prior to the auction as all sales are“As Is” with no buyer contingencies. There are no staging and repair expenses incurred unlessit is agreed that it makes sense to take care of certain items before the sale. All bidders areprequalified prior to the auction.
Sellers appreciate the assistance that Graystone provides. Our process can help avoid thepotential prolonged costs of having the real estate on the market for an indeterminate amountof time.
The sale is conducted on-site and online. Marketing and real estate previews are usuallyconducted over a 3-4 week period. Bidders must have completed a Bidder RegistrationPacket before the auction starts. After all bidding ceases, the sale is final to the highest bidder,and the buyer puts down a 10%, non-refundable deposit made out to the title company. Escrowwill typically close in 7-30 days. As opposed to a conventional listing, bids are displayed in realtime, so the buyer is not left wondering how much more they could have offered to get the property.
Graystone has the experience to know where and how to market real estate and personal property. Sellers like the fact thatthe Buyer’s Premium covers Graystone Auctions’ costs when selling the real estate and like the reduced commissionscharged for the sale of personal property when the real estate is also being sold.
