According to Mark Manley, Auction Coordinator for [Rowell Auctions, "this method of sale allows for prospective buyers that may have alternate uses for the property to buy one or both properties without having to buy the furnishings." Manley also stated that "if a buyer is interested in the properties to operate as a Bed and Breakfast they will have the opportunity to buy the furnishings as well. According to Manley, "preliminary interest in the auction has been outstanding with Rowell staff fielding calls daily from prospective buyers." Manley went on to state that "the key aspect of this auction is that it is an Absolute Auction, which means there is no minimum bids and no reserves, whatever the high bid price is will be the selling price."
