Coleman & Patterson will go the extra mile to ensure effective marketing, a positive sale day experience, and increased exposure to every property.

After viewing and researching the property and current market conditions, buyers determine the bid price on the day of the auction and eliminate long negotiation periods. Buyers can make smart financial decisions knowing the properties are purchased at current market values.

  • In multi-property auctions, buyers can learn market value by viewing previous offerings.
  • Buying from motivated sellers.
  • Reducing overall time to purchase properties.
  • Reducing long drawn out negotiating periods.
  • Potentially buying properties for less than previously listed prices.
