Auction Services Overview

PAL Auction Advantages

Real Estate auctions are used extensively in other parts of the world, particularly in Australia, Asia and parts of Europe: in some countries as much as 75% of real estate sales are through some type of auction or bidding format.  In the U.S. real estate auctions are becoming more prevalent and are not just for distressed properties.  We are also seeing in this current market that banks and other financial institutions are using loan portfolio note auctions as an alternative to foreclosing and taking “fee” ownership and transferring obligations of the loan to a new operator.  While an auction can help find the “true market value” for certain distressed properties and loan portfolios, at the other end of the market, with a highly desirable and sought after properties, an auction can help find the competitive value on the “upside”.  With no list price, all bidders are invited participate on a specific day and a high demand property can obtain top dollar, similar to fine art or fine jewelry in an estate sale.
