Interview with an Auctioneer March 5, 2007

“Properties that make sense in the traditional market of real estate make better sense at an auction. I’ve been trying to tell people that for years, but I don’t think I’ve made many converts among the real estate brokers.”

“In a real estate auction, you don’t use that bid calling like those cow sellers. Everybody can understand where the bid is, what we’re asking for, because the majority of people never have been to an auction. Am I going to scratch my nose and end up with a property? No, it’s not going to happen.”

It would not surprise me if people’s impression of auctions still included a scene out of “I Love Lucy” where Lucy inadvertently scratches her nose only to become the winning bidder on a brand new house! Or a yawn which turns into ownership of that priceless work of art putting you permanently in the “poor house.” Keep the info flowing!
