FAQS:
THE AUCTION PROCESS

SELLER

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE TO AUCTION INSTEAD OF SELLING TRADITIONALLY?
We see auction as an additional tool rather than an alternative. However, we know that the traditional model has limitations—especially in the luxury realm where the buyer pool is limited
and properties are not very liquid even in healthy market conditions. With Concierge Auctions, because start to closing is typically just 60 days, you can avoid the carrying costs and opportunity cost associated with long days on market. It is intense, effective, and lets you control the timing of your sale. In short, we accomplish in 60 days what far too often takes years.


HOW DOES THE AUCTION PROCESS WORK?
In conjunction with your agent, we showcase your property to targeted members of our global database of more than 650,000 individuals, including our Private Client Group of high-net-
worth buyers, agents, and industry experts. The process typically results in 200-400 prospects and 3–7 qualified buyers competing for your property. For a No Reserve auction, before the auction opens, you can decide whether to move forward after reviewing the field of bidders and their opening bids.

WHAT DOES IT COST? HOW DO YOU GET PAID?
There are no upfront costs to sellers, and we pay all marketing costs associated with auctioning the property. Our fee comes from a premium paid by the buyer in addition to the high bid. Sellers pay agent commissions as outlined in their listing agreement.


AREN’T AUCTIONS ONLY FOR DISTRESSED PROPERTIES?
No. Our typical seller is well capitalized. They choose auction to control the timing of their sale.


WHAT AUCTION FORMATS DO YOU USE?
We use two auction formats. 1) No Reserve: There is no minimum bid to purchase. 2) Reserve: Will sell at or above a pre-determined price threshold.


I AM READY TO AUCTION MY PROPERTY.
NOW WHAT?

We are solely focused on luxury properties and only one in 20 is chosen for our platform. Call us, or have your agent call us, to discuss

"

I partner with businesses based on many factors, but most important of all are their people. The Concierge Auctions and Barry Cohen teams are especially strong and their process gives sellers, as I was, the advantage of control, predictability, and liquidity—all on your timeline. This is an in- novative means of buying and selling real estate that benefits from Concierge’s reach to both local and global clientele through excellent marketing capability that is conducted within a very competitive environment. It is a uniquely fast, efficient, and rewarding method of selling your home.”
​​​​​​​— Lord Conrad Black, Seller, Toronto | Listed by Barry Cohen, RE/MAX


AGENT​​​​​​​

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE LISTING AGREEMENT IF MY CLIENT CHOOSES TO AUCTION?
Your listing agreement remains 100% intact. We have never conducted an auction without a listing agent involved and a commission offered to a buyer’s agent. Agents on both sides of the transaction earn their full commissions as paid by the seller.


CAN I SPEAK WITH OTHER AGENTS WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN YOUR AUCTIONS?
Certainly. Visit ConciergeAuctions.com/agents to see a list of agents with whom we have worked.

HOW CAN AGENTS EARN MONEY WITH CONCIERGE AUCTIONS?
There are five ways: 1) Represent a seller. 2) Represent a winning bidder. 3) Refer a new listing agent. 4) Receive seller or 5) buyer
referrals from Concierge Auctions. For more information visit
ConciergeAuctionsReferral.com.


​​​​​​​CAN I REPRESENT A BIDDER FOR AN AUCTION IN A LOCATION IN WHICH I AM NOT LICENSED?

Yes. If you bidder wins the auction, you will be
paid the co-brokerage commission as a
referral fee.
