You Want to Sell Effectively

We work with you to establish a condensed timeline for your clients’ property to be sold. It’s our job to develop a narrative and full-stack marketing strategy that unfolds throughout the auction timeline and empowers you with meaningful data at each step of the process. Monitor bids, receive weekly reports, and view property activity status from your mobile, computer, and tablet devices.

Our Solution

With auction, there are no contingencies, negotiations, or long closing periods—just a market of motivated buyers and sellers. The timeline is streamlined, meaning that you’ll get your commission as soon as 30 days after the auction date. And, on average, our referral commissions are 167% more than the standard 25% referral.

Yes! On average, our referral commissions are 167% more than the standard 25% referral that you’re used to. Once the property is sold and closed, you get paid—based on the total commission, not just the listing side.

The typical Cates marketing and auction campaign lasts approximately 6 weeks. The first 5 weeks consist of the promotional and exposure period. Bidding commences in the final week. After the close of the auction, the buyer typically has 30 days to close on the property.

Once you’ve referred your client, we handle the rest. You can be as hands-off as you want to be, after the auction process begins. Agents have access to the Cates Auction App, where you can check in on mobile, computer, and/or tablet devices to monitor bids, receive weekly reports, and view property status.

Generally speaking, motivated sellers with a short timeline are the best candidates for auction. Clients that want to sell their property as-is, don’t have a lot of time to invest in the process, or have properties that just won’t move on the market are also great candidates for auction.
