The secondary sales market is currently very dynamic with a large proportion of articles entering the marketplace due to active changes in population demographics – more and more people are downsizing and moving into smaller residences as the tail end of the baby boom generation winds down.
It is vitally important to position articles at a sale venue where the maximum return will be achieved. When it comes time to sell those articles that you no longer require, or if you are an executor or estate administrator entrusted with an estate, we offer several options for the sale of personal property.
Auction sales have been a traditional mainstay of selling personal property for many centuries. Auctions create a momentum and sense of urgency and offer rapid liquidity and capitalization of property.Our auctions are either single estates or multiple consignors. They vary in caliber from general household to high end specialty and theme based sales.
We have a strong and solid client base that regularly attend our sales. An extensive advertising, marketing and promotion campaign utilising state of the art technology insures that we have a broad base appeal and the right blend of potential purchasers attending our venues – a critical component to achieving fair market value at sale.
