TopTenRealEstateDeals.com announces the most interesting real estate auctions in September.
"A dismal housing market persuades more people to take the quick way out. An auction can usually turn a home into cash within two or three months from the start of the process to completion", states TopTenRealEstateDeals.com's Bob Walsh.
According to the National Auctioneers Association, real estate auctions have increased by about 10% every year since the early 2000s. Some of these auctions are quite interesting.
At Top10, TopTenRealEstateDeals.com , the slogan 'where real estate is never boring' rings true with these upcoming auctions located in their weekly 'Top10 Upcoming Auctions' list.
Most auctions are for places that are unique, strange or quirky allowing for eye catching news headlines.
Recent auctions have included places like the Detroit Lions Pontiac Silverdome - a $55 million stadium that sold for $583,000 in 2009. Or Cheryl Crow's Tennessee solar horse farm that didn't sell since the reserve was not met. Site visitors were offered a chance to buy an entire Virginia tourist trap including a souvenir shop and two museums (the Jeane Dixon and American Presidents Museums) in a July 2010 auction. There was also last year's 216-acre island off the coast of Washington with six beaches, 13,000 feet of shoreline, a 19,000-gallon water tower, four generators and a septic tank where a $3 million bid for the island was rejected.
Unusual and interesting upcoming real estate auctions in September include:
- Win your very own Hooters Restaurant building (September 7) in West Virginia
- Bid on the place where John Brown met his demise (September 11)
- Buy an authentic replication of an “Old West” town in Georgia including 320 acres, a cowboy main house, 15 western-style buildings, an equestrian facility plus an outdoor stage, lighting and sound system - all going to the highest bidder (September 22).
