Property Sold by Auction Method will be offered by one of three ways:

This method will bring the most qualified bidders resulting in the highest price possible. No Reserve, No Minimum Bid. The property will sell that day REGARDLESS of price. 

A pre-determined opening bid/reserve has been set by the Private Seller, Bank, or Courts. This number will be published and announced prior to the Auction. It is the lowest price accepted for the property. The bidding begins here until the highest and best bid is accepted by the Auctioneer. 

 The Motivated Seller has a price in mind but is willing to consider the highest and best offer that day. The Seller is willing and prepared to sell. A suggested opening bid will be published that reflects a below “market value”.

How do I participate as a bidder? 

 Attend an Open House event or schedule a private showing and receive all documents.

Contact your lender for pre-approval or proof of funds letter.

Bidders will register with a valid Driver’s License and a Cashier’s Check (Deposit) day of Auction. Amounts differ from Auction to Auction. Bidders will be able to review all disclosures of property, terms and conditions of Auction and walk thru property prior to Auction start. Plan to arrive one hour prior to Auction. Bidders may, prior to Auction, schedule inspections or request any documents.

Winning Bidder/Buyer will sign Auction Purchase Agreement immediately following the Auction. All other Bidders will receive their Cashier’s Check immediately after Auction. Only the Buyer’s check is kept. Please read all terms and conditions which may be different from Auction to Auction.

What Our Clients Say

“I wanted to let you know just how pleased we are with the Schillig Auction staff and you, Cynthia. Thank you for all the effort and dedication in getting our family home sold. I was unfamiliar with the auction method and how it worked, but you walked us right through it. You always kept us updated and informed which made us feel so at ease. This was our 3rd home and the easiest to sell because of the auction. I am SOLD!”
