Sellers Choose Auction for Speed, Certainty and Competition

sell your home

Whether it’s art, cars, or horses, sellers choose auction for speed, certainty and competition. What can auction do for you? Let’s break it down:

Speed. List your home with Williams & Williams and it will sell in 30 days. The average Days on Market for traditional listings in the U.S. is 78 days. Auction reduces that by more than half. Selling in 30 days also means you decrease your holding costs (mortgage, utilities, insurance, taxes). A quick sale puts you on the path to your new life in less time.

Certainty. A definite auction date means you know exactly when your home will sell. Properties sell “as is, where is” so there are no contingencies or repairs to worry with. The certainty of the auction date brings buyers off the fence and turns them into bidders.

Competition. Instead of setting a price and negotiating down, bidders negotiate up, eliminating the price ceiling of traditional real estate transactions. Auction creates a sense of urgency unlike any other real estate marketing method. Anyone who hesitates risks missing the opportunity.

Luxury Home Auctions: Saranac Lake, NY

If you’ve ever been to Saranac Lake or The Village of Lake Placid, NY, you probably have an idea of why people want to live in the area. Saranac Lake offers stunning views of untouched wilderness, an average high temperature of 78 in July, and plenty of outdoor activities.

The state owns a great deal of the shoreline of Lower Saranac Lake, which has much less development than Upper Saranac Lake. In fact, 42% of the land within the Blue Line (Adirondack and Catskill parks) is state-owned and “forever wild”, which means this land cannot be developed. This allows area residents to enjoy seclusion and and natural beauty year-round.

The rest of the Adirondack Park is a collage of private property. It’s the biggest park east of the Mississippi, bigger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Glacier national parks combined. Imagine living in a wilderness preserve, to own a home in such a special place.

This month, Williams & Williams and Adirondack Premier Properties, Inc. present the opportunity to own a home in this beautiful area of the country. Two waterfront homes on Lower Saranac Lake will auction on July 19th. Read on to learn more about these luxury homes.

50 Lower Saranac Rd has 7 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 7,000+/- square feet. This luxury home boasts beautiful views from almost any location. Click here to learn more.
