Until about a year ago forced sales could take place only through the Lands & Surveys Department. Based on new legislation banks can go through with sales using a procedure of their own and without having to involve the Lands Department. Sales based on the new legislation kicked off in June 2016. All these were forced sales and could materialize usually without the owner’s consent.
We propose a different kind of auction. This is a private auction, again without the involvement of the Lands Dept. and with the consent of the owner.
Some of the benefits and conditions of the FOX private auction are the following:
Conditions and benefits
The procedure usually generates competition between buyers, something beneficial to the owner.
All of the above are some of the benefits/conditions of the FOX private auction.
The main difference between auctions by FOX and those of banks is that we choose which properties to promote, making for a more attractive option to buyers.
The interested buyers are provided with all relevant information about the property and its characteristics and are invited to visit and inspect the site whenever convenient to them, before the auction. As opposed to the forced auctions where most likely the owner will not open the door to potential buyers.
Finally, the seller can lower the reserved price based on the interest from buyers, the result being that an interested buyer can buy at a really low price.
Unfortunately not all properties are suitable for FOX private auction (call us at 800 800 82 for more info).
