Auctions are the most transparent and efficient means of selling your asset, and there is no better way to determine the true market value of your lot. Across the nation, many folks prefer auction for selling their items, but now comes the tricky part: How do you, as a seller, maximize that decision?
If you’re in any business for any amount of time at all, you learn very quickly that hiring only your friends and family isn’t a wise way to go in most situations. That also extends to business references from those same friends and family — whether it comes to choosing a real estate agent, banking and investment advice or, in this case, who you choose to conduct your auction event.
To think all auction professionals are the same is to make a grave error from the start. Sure, there are plenty of people who call themselves auctioneers. They don’t have a problem standing in front of a crowd, and maybe they even have a chant that makes them sound “professional.”
But, are they trained professionals, really?
As you can see, there is a lot more that needs to be considered than just finding someone who sounds good on event day.
However, the good news is that all of your guesswork is gone; your homework is completed. How? Choose a member of the National Auctioneers Association.
