If you are considering selling at auction, this is information that may be of interest to you:

 Did you know that 30 to 33% of the value of real assets are absorbed in one year of holding.   That's right, if you hold it for one year and sell it for the amount you now have it listed/appraised for, you have lost 30-33% of the value.
Many times price is not as important as holding cost!!!

 If you choose not to hold your real estate any
longer, we can sell it date specific. 
You choose the date, we do the rest.
