Irvine, CA (Vocus) June 17, 2010
REDC’s successful run of builder auctions continued in Miami on Saturday when the nation’s leading real estate auction company sold 24 Altos de Miami condominiums.
The auction took place at the Hilton Miami Airport Hotel.
"We're very pleased with the results from the auction," says REDC CEO Jeff Frieden. "Our client was able to sell 24 units at the auction to the large group of homebuyers and investors in attendance including 6 units to online bidders.
“This auction is a perfect example of a best-case-scenario for both buyer and seller."
Last month, REDC sold all 22 of the luxury condominiums at 18th on the Bay at the Peninsula on Indian River Bay in Millsboro, Delaware. In April, REDC sold all 65 San Lorenzo high-rise condominiums in Miami in just two and half hours.
REDC’s next builder-developer auction is July 17 when it auctions 35 high-rise condominiums at The Metropolitan in Dallas at 1 p.m. at the Downtown Sheraton Dallas.

Saturday’s Altos de Miami auction was a unique opportunity to be at the heart of a magical area at an affordable price and homebuyers took advantage of it,” Frieden says.
The Altos de Miami condos that did not sell, including several penthouses are available for post-auction offers online at REDC’s web site, http://www.Auction.com or at the special Altos de Miami Auction site http://www.REDCsale.com.
The Altos de Miami sellers are motivated, Frieden says, and the auction prices are very attractive.
Altos de Miami features quality condo living in the heart of Miami with spectacular views of the Miami Skyline. As the trend for people wanting to live in the city and not in suburban areas accelerates, the demand for affordable condos like Altos de Miami increases. Residents are minutes from six major employment centers: Miami International Airport, University of Miami Campus, University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital District on 12th Ave, Brickell/Downtown, Coral Gables, and Coconut Grove.
“For those looking to buy or invest in today’s housing market, now is the best time,” Frieden says. “Today’s low prices, motivated sellers and low interest rates have created a perfect storm for buyers. This is a very unique period in the real estate market.
“Auctions are the one way to buy real estate where the buyers set the price,” he adds. “Buyers and sellers meet in a transparent auction platform and the true market value is determined. Our sellers are ecstatic when we deliver the population of interested bidders and buyers are thrilled with auction prices. We continue to see amazing deals at our auctions, one after another.”
