The Boston real estate firm is holding an online auction for a condo in the Back Bay on November 20, 2011.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to assist a seller maximize the sale price of their property in the shortest amount of time using this online auction. In a situation like this where the seller needs to liquidate their asset quickly yet still try to maximize equity, the online auction method of selling real estate is a perfect fit,” says Michael DiMella, Charlesgate Realty Managing Partner. “I’m thrilled that the seller understands the risks involved, especially given that this property is the first ever to be auctioned online in this fashion in Boston, and has given us free reign to use the online auction the best we see fit, even allowing us to run the auction without a hidden reserve price. This property will sell to the highest bidder, no matter what.”

Auctions have been used to sell residential condo developments previously, but what makes this different is the online format of the auction, similar to an EBay auction with special modifications for real estate, and the fact that it is for an individual non-bank owned property. Charlesgate Realty Group anticipates providing the online auction sale method in the future to other sellers in the Boston Real Estate Market fitting specific criteria that would make it the best option for them.
