Auction Fees

We feel that an honest commission is the fairest way to charge for selling items or real estate at auction. This commission is usually based on both the quantity and quality of items or real estate consigned. Most personal property auctions are conducted on a no money upfront basis. The advertising, labor, and any other expenses will be settled for after the auction and paid directly from the sales proceeds. To ensure the aggressive marketing that real estate at auction demands, we ask that our clients provide advertising dollars in advance. This cost can be offset by charging a buyers premium for the privilege of purchasing the property at auction. Our goal is to provide a cost effective "client friendly" service dedicated to getting the highest dollar value for your real estate and personal property.

Appraisal Fees

A verified appraiser normally charges for service by the hour, or a specified amount agreed to by the client and the appraiser, based on the amount of time involved. Keep in mind that various amounts of time will be spent on market research, valuation , and appraisal document writing. Extensive additional research due to a unique item, court testimony, outside consultants, or travel time may, in some cases, result in additional fees. We feel that the most reliable appraisal is an opinion based on knowledge gained through education and special training, backed up by technical research abilities.
