The Real Estate Summit was a very positive and informative experience
Phoenix, AZ. (PRWEB) June 19, 2009
In the fast-paced world of auctions, it pays to stay up to speed on changes in the marketplace. Phoenix auctioneer, Deb Weidenhamer of Auction Systems Auctioneers & Appraisers, Inc. recently joined auctioneers from across the nation for the National Auctioneers Association's Real Estate Summit in Atlanta, Georgia.
The real estate industry has witnessed significant challenges in recent years due to economic instability, a surplus of property available for purchase, and challenges facing the banking sector. Real estate auctions continue to hold strong in today's marketplace, growing to $58.6 billion in 2008. Since 2003, gross sales in residential real estate auctions have increased 47.7%.
The Real Estate Summit was hosted by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA), the nation's leading professional society for auction professionals. The two-day summit took place May 18-29, 2009 at the Marriott Perimeter Center in Atlanta. The biennial summit presents speakers representing a range of industries. Seminars at this summit ranged from working with bankers and homeowners in today's marketplace, to navigating Government Sponsored Enterprises (i.e. Fannie Mae).
"The Real Estate Summit was a very positive and informative experience," said Deb Weidenhamer, CEO of Auction Systems. "I hope that by attending the summit and participating in the debate, I am able to make a contribution to the auction industry by sharing information and insight with the commercial and residential buyers and sellers for whom we provide services."
Auction Systems provides a unique service to real property buyers and sellers alike. Unlike most Phoenix auction firms, Auction Systems hosts real estate auctions with just a few properties instead of hundreds at a time. By doing so, Auction Systems is able to focus on the needs of all parties involved in the sale - the sellers, the lenders and the buyers - developing unique relationships and finding solutions that are beneficial to all.
