Dan Ware, who is a licensed real estate agent and a very good auctioneer with the LJ Hooker in sub-tropical Rockhampton in Queensland, has a few amazing ideas about hosting the successful auction on a hot day. “Auctions are on the rise in this part of the world and having one certainly reduces the total days on market, which is attractive to sellers. If it’s hot – and it usually is – we just adapt,” Ware said. So, folks today hear from him how you can held up a nice and warm auction.
Few things are the key to just ensuring a very successful action.
1. The Prominent Timing
“Firstly, we set an appropriate time for the auction and often have them early in the day, before the heat really kicks in,” he said.
2. Preferred Location
“Then, if the auction is on-site, we ensure we have a shady spot for it to take place,” Ware said.
Ware said, "genuine buyers will always turn up for an auction, despite the conditions".
“It might be a bit uncomfortable, but if a house ticks all the boxes for a buyer, they will be there, hot or not,” he added
“People can be pretty laid-back up here, so it can sometimes take a bit for an auction to get going, but having an auction campaign means the vendor has a good sense of what price their property might make, because people have already been through and given their feedback. And as an agent, we have an indication of how many genuine buyers are out there.” he further added
The market in Rockhampton is “on the up”, Ware says, thanks to low-interest rates and recent news that a nearby coal mine is hiring new staff. “If mining gets up and going again, we expect the investors to flock,” he said.
So, here was the full or can say partial glimpses of holding an amazing and warmed auction.
