Benefits & TestimonialsThe luxury properties offered at auction by Grand Estates represent some of the finest homes in the world. Their owners are motivated, capable sellers who have made the strategic business decision to let us help them sell their luxury property by auction at a price determined by you, the buyer. This results in a group of sophisticated, well-informed participants eager and willing to take advantage of the kind of remarkable home buying opportunity only Grand Estates can offer.
Traditionally, when a luxury home is put on the market, the sales price can be based on a variety of factors, including the emotional attachment of the seller, unrealistic or inaccurate comparative listings, or even an arbitrary price. Buying a home at auction, however, provides you with the peace of mind that you are paying fair market value, as determined by a room full of your peers. At Grand Estates, we let you quickly ascertain the true value of a property, and we let you pay your own price.
Every Grand Estates luxury real estate auction provides buyers with the opportunity to personally preview our auction properties. As a prospective buyer, we make sure you have a clear, comfortable understanding of the property on which you want to bid. Please remember, as a buyer, you alone will determine the purchase price at auction, which is why we always provide extensive due diligence and opportunities to see the property in advance of the big day.
Here are a few benefits our buyers enjoy:
- Through the transparency an auction offers, buyers can feel confident you are paying fair market value.
- Buyers receive comprehensive information and due diligence well before placing a bid on a property, and can arrange to view the property well in advance of auction.
- There are no games or long negotiation periods between buyer and seller. On the day of the auction, you can be confident the seller is committed to sell, and you enjoy the complete transparency of an open bidding forum.
- You, the buyer, determine the purchase price, not the seller or the listing agent. Buyers can also feel confident that a fair price is paid.
- Purchasing and closing dates are known in advance, for ease of planning.
- Buyers know they are competing fairly and on the same terms as all other buyers
What people who’ve bid in our auctions say about us…
"I would like to take this opportunity to say a very big "thank you" for introducing us to our new home in Cordillera. After discussing this house on the telephone, we knew we just had to have it. So, we went ahead and bought it unseen. To say that it is everything you said it was is an understatement. It is magnificent. - Lord J. & Lady C. Sansom
"I would like to say that I enjoyed my first experience with Grand Estates Auction Company tremendously, and I found the auction process to be very innovative and exciting. Both myself as the buyer's broker and my client's were treated with the highest standards of professionalism, and I appreciate your personal attention to all of our inquiries and detailed questions. I look forward to participating in another auction experience in the near future, and I love the entire presentation of the property and the magnificent marketing which surrounds the experience." - L. Mackarous, Century 21 Vision Agency
