Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) May 18, 2008
Between the housing market and mortgage crunch that have left many sellers, buyers and financial institutions up against a wall, a one-size fits all solution may be impossible to establish. One sales method, however, has the potential to provide relief to a large portion of those who are in need of help in this challenging real estate market. The best part is that both buyers and sellers can find mutual benefits with United Country Real Estate's upcoming series of multi-property auctions taking place across the country this summer.
While multi-property auctions have been popping up around the nation this year, United Country approaches these events with a unique singular objective that is consistent with the company's longstanding mission of simply uniting buyers and sellers in an innovative and efficient way.
"We realize that many people out there today need a solution to their individual real estate needs. Many sellers are looking for a better way to sell their homes, whether they are facing foreclosure or simply needing to move a property that has been sitting stagnant on the market, "said Mike Jones, president of United Country Auction Services.
"On the other side of the fence, we see buyers who have been hit hard by the mortgage industry and others who feel uncertain about how to find the best property in a market flooded by inventory. We also see financial institutions holding a huge inventory of REO (real estate owned) properties that accumulated due to foreclosures in the past 18 months.
"What it comes down to is that we have people who want to sell homes and buyers who want to fulfill the American dream of home ownership in the current market. Our main goal in conducting these events is to bring these groups together to make transactions happen. We want to provide an accurate and effective means to properly market these properties. These are people's homes and each one deserves to be given time and attention. Our goal is to find the right buyer for each property at the accurate market price.
"Unlike other multi-property auctions that focus on one specific type of property, whether high-end, bank owned or investment, United Country plans to offer a variety of properties at each event. "We design each event to have a selection for every type of buyer, whether they are looking for a single- family home, an investment opportunity or a multi-million dollar property," Jones said.
Another advantage to the United Country program is their unique marketing tools, which have been reaching buyers for decades. These tools have enabled the company to build a proprietary buyer database, currently totaling more than 300,000 buyers who have contacted the company with interest in making a purchase. This is coupled with United Country's industry-leading Web site that generates more than 1 million visitors each month.
United Country's marketing power will be used to attract maximum participation at each event. The multi-property auction format also provides expediency to sellers by creating a set sale date and establishes true market value through the competitive bidding process. The auction method gives sellers the knowledge that their property will gain exposure to buyers who are truly ready to make a purchase - something that has been difficult to do with the traditional method of sales in many markets. To provide additional peace of mind to buyers, United Country will offer a home warranty, the United Country Home Protection Plan, as an option on each property featured at their events. Buyers will also benefit from the expertise of United Country Home Mortgage's experienced team, who will be offering on-site service at each auction.
United Country will be conducting multi-property auctions in the following cities, and the company is currently accepting properties to be included in these auction line-ups.
