Scott Oglesby, owner/auctioneer of United Country - Oglesby & Company of Bartow, Fla., will conduct a public auction on August 16. The auction will feature more than 70 properties worth an estimated $30 million, including recreational land, large acreages, residential homes, building sites, condos, upscale homes and commercial parcels located throughout Florida.

"This is not a junk sale," explained Oglesby. "We are auctioning quality properties for highly motivated sellers, including everything from waterfront homes on Charlotte Harbor to homes located on golf course or featuring lake access. The surplus of property already for sale in Florida prompted our sellers to liquidate their real estate holdings through auction, a method of real estate marketing that provides an efficient means to turn non-producing assets back into cash flow."

For the August 16 event, Oglesby has partnered with Bill Roye, owner/broker/auctioneer of United Country - Bill Roye Realty & Auction.

"The trend to move multiple properties through auction marketing is growing," said Roye. "Selling real estate in today's market can be challenging, and the auction method is a viable alternative to just sticking a sign on your property. It provides immediate results, maintains control of the sale process, and establishes a competitive selling price."

This auction is open to the public, including both customers who have been involved with auctions before and those new to the auction method of marketing real estate.

"The current buyer's market combined with the accelerated buying process offered by auctions makes these events ideal for consumers. However, many potential buyers feel intimidated by multi-property auctions," said Oglesby. "Some people feel that these events only benefit real estate investors who have the ability to pay cash, but United Country's multi-property auctions make it possible for average buyers to identify and purchase their dream properties with confidence. Today's real estate market also creates the perfect opportunity for first time buyers to find affordable options.

"What makes our auction process different is our goal of finding the right buyer for each property at the accurate market price. Our mission is to unite these buyers and sellers to initiate transactions with mutual rewards. Financing options and home warranties also provide services to support our goal."

The auction will begin at 11 a.m. on Aug. 16 at Fantasy of Flight in Lakeland, Fla. The homes will be available for preview on August 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. More information also can be found online at http://www.UCFloridaAuction.com or by calling 877-361-7770.
