The public auction process is a tried and true method of selling real estate in the United States. At Farmers National Company, we know that the auction method has the ability to get you top dollar while you remain in full control of the selling conditions and terms. It also offers you a chance to sell your property in a reasonable period of time.
We work with you to choose how the actual auction will be conducted.
The Auction Advantage
· Competitive public bidding means higher prices.
· Auctions create excitement for your property.
· You have full control of the sale date, selling terms, and closing date.
· Auctions do not establish a price ceiling for your property.
· Everyone has an opportunity to buy your property through an "arm's-length" transaction.
Farmers National Company is one of the pioneers in offering farms and ranches at public auction using a multi-tract system. This method involves dividing larger properties into multiple bidding units and then allowing potential purchasers to submit bids on individual tracts, combinations of tracts, and finally the whole property.
We also offer a private treaty sale method. Your property is priced as agreed on by you and Farmers National Company and is exclusively listed for a period of one year. Farmers National Company completes a market analysis to arrive at a projected listing price for your property. Once the property is listed, we fully market it by utilizing our proven marketing tools.
