Online Real Estate Auction Myths Debunked

Because online real estate auctions are not considered the tradional way of buying or selling real estate, there are many misconceptions about online auctions. Here are the top myths debunked:



Myth Number 1: Online auctions are only for distressed properties

Auctions aren't just for buying and selling bank-owned homes, they are also used for many non-distressed, luxury properties.

Myth Number 2: Online auctions are complicated

Using online auctions to purchase real estate may seem daunting and unfamiliar to many, but the process is geared toward transparency and simplicity. Property information, auction terms and conditions, and any disclosures are provided weeks before bidding on a property begins. Preview periods are also held so buyers can view the home before bidding.

Myth Number 3: Online auctions don't benefit real estate agents

It’s always a good idea to seek independent advice from a real estate professional or attorney. They will have the most expertise in assisting you through the online auction process, including real estate values and other financial aspects. They will also be able to advise you on what to offer when it comes time to bid.

Myth Number 4: Online auctions are only for experienced investors

Due to the rising popularity of online real estate auctions today, attendees are a mix of experienced investors and everyday homeowners.

Myth Number 5: Buying a home "as-is" is a huge risk

Even though auctioned homes are almost always sold as-is, with no contingencies, a good online real estate auction will have all the inspection reports available to prospective buyer’s weeks before the auction commences.

Myth Number 6: If I sell my home at online auction, I will get a lower price than market value

Auctions are actually the best way to determine a property’s true market value. This can be especially true for unique properties or when there are few comparable homes. During online auctions, people are bidding on the same property at the same time, creating competition so you can get true market value.
