Are Luxury Property Auctions A Smart Option?

Luxury auctions can be a smart option for sellers, especially if they are looking to leverage additional marketing for their property. If the property has been on the market for a while, luxury property auctions can be an opportunity for more exposure.

Generally not in the same vein as hardship auctions, luxury property auctions focus on a particular group of buyers and are executed a bit differently. Luxury property auctions often focus on high end buyers that are looking in specific locales or regional areas. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Adirondack Premier Properties has suggested this option to three homeowners in the last five years. In all three cases, successful outcomes were achieved by implementing a very effective luxury property auctions process.

Generally our office does not lead with this option. First, we suggest testing the market to see if we are able to find the perfect buyer for the property. If this initial search doesn’t turn up the interest we were hoping for, we may suggest moving on to the tried and true methods of luxury property auctions.

Previous Successful Luxury Property Auctions

In our previous successful luxury property auctions, our ADKPP offices used Platinum Luxury Auctions. We have built a wonderful relationship with Platinum Luxury Auctions that includes the exclusive right to use them versus other agencies in our region. We believe this relationship helped build sale successful outcomes for the gorgeous Adirondack luxury properties that were featured.

The successful auctions were Camp Island View in Long Lake, Paradise Peninsula in Tupper Lake and most recently Palazzo Riggi in Saratoga. All three had their own unique features attractive to many luxury buyers.
