Step 1: What can we do for you?
If you are considering RealtyTrust for selling your property, we suggest you begin by reviewing our state-of-the-art website, and once you are comfortable with moving forward, simply give us a call at 615.346.4646 or send an email. If your property appears to be a suitable candidate for our accelerated marketing program, we will send our experienced auction marketing specialists to visit the property and learn about your needs and expectations. They will make a presentation on what we offer and answer any questions you may have.
Step 2: Having the right expectations
RealtyTrust makes client education their priority, always being honest and letting clients know upfront what is achievable and what is not. Dwight O'Neal, Partner & Auctioneer says, "We provide clients with realistic expectations for what can and cannot be done. We often spend a great deal of time advising and guiding them through the process, which best fits them and their particular circumstances. It may not always be what they want to hear, but this open and direct approach helps clients to better understand and make informed decisions. We will not take properties or clients which we feel are not appropriate or cannot benefit from our process. This saves them time, money, and disappointment in the long run."
Step 3: Becoming a client
They will then present you with a RealtyTrust Auction Listing Agreement; once signed our marketing professionals will develop a marketing campaign specifically designed to market your property and attract the ideal demographic suitable for your property type, which will include a media plan for advertising in venues that will maximize the value and provide you the best results.
Step 4: The process
At this time our professionals will begin putting the campaign into action. Providing our clients and the general public with a straight forward, uncomplicated and transparent real estate transaction, which can be understood in its most basic form. In this process, RealtyTrust will always strive to protect its clients best interest and privacy, all the while providing state-of-the-art technology, proven marketing plans, and a process that gets your property sold and closed quickly with no contingencies, reduces your cost of ownership, shortens your time on the market, achieves or exceeds market values, and gives control of the terms and conditions back to the Seller, all leading to less risk.
The showing period for your property typically takes place on sale date, approximately two to three hours prior to auction beginning. During this time, our experienced staff will be assigned to your property full-time to ensure that prospective bidders and their inspectors enjoy ample opportunities to tour and appreciate the property, while providing property information.
- Bidders will begin registering a few hours before the designated auction time.
- RealtyTrust bid assistants will circulate among the bidders to answer questions before the auctioneer explains the terms of your auction.
- Before the live auction begins, the auctioneer will provide an example of the bidding process to familiarize the audience with bid calling.
- Once the live auction takes place and the winning bidder is recognized, RealtyTrust staff will meet with you and the successful bidder to sign a contingency-free sales contract and arrange for closing, which is typically within thirty days.
