It doesn't help bring in better prices in my market. Price them right and multiple offers will follow. Auctions eliminate a segment of the market.

   Hi, Myers. 

     In Tallahassee, auctions are usually for foreclosures, distressed properties, stale on shelf, etc.  In the outlying rural areas, large tracts of land are usually auctioned.

     When/if I need an auctioneer, I will keep you in mind!

I generate multiple offers in my area without going through an Auction. Many in my area associate an Auction with distressed properties..not a good connotation for my clients.

Not wondering about auctions, been to many.  Accelerated "offers due by X" marketing campaigns, those can work in hot markets when multiple offers are expected.  I've used them a couple times when appropriate.

We've participated and brought buyers to several auctions, helped one buyer win the bid on one.  We have a couple of good auction brokerages around here. We are a hot market right now so we see less homes sold that way now than we did several years ago.  I'm assuming you are not talking about foreclosure auctions?  We've participated in those as well. -Kasey

I don't do them either - they're typically not in the price range that my clients are in so, they're not part of my business plan.
