As the referring Broker/Agent in an auction event, your primary responsibility is to introduce a qualified prospect.

Your client relationship with the Seller is protected and referral fees are always paid immediately after closing. In addition, our accelerated marketing program creates non-contingent sales, allowing the Seller to collect his/her proceeds in a reliable time frame and allowing you to receive your commissions in a more expedient fashion.

Auctions

What is an Assiter Auctioneers auction?

Auctions on Assiter Auctioneers are not like auctions on Ebay. They're authentic auction experiences that often take place in real time as well as online. Just like you have probably seen on television, people arrive at the auction's location, browse the lots or property, and place their bids. The difference is that with Assiter Auctioneers, the auction action takes place online as well as on location.

Some Assiter Auctioneers auctions are online-only. These auctions are not taking place live, and all bids are accepted online.

Some Assiter Auctioneers auctions are live only. These auctions do not accept any online bidding, but prospective bidders can view details about the auction online such as the auction location, catalog, and details surrounding the auction.

How do I register for an auction?

Creating your Assiter Auctioneers account is fast and easy.  You can register to bid online for any auction on our website.  If you want to bid in person at any of our live auctions, you will need to register at the auction location.  In addition, some of our auctions will allow bidding on our mobile app.  

Where can I find the terms and conditions for an auction?

Terms and Conditions are located both on the main auction event page and on individual lot pages.

How does an auction end?

An auction only ends when bidding has stopped. The auction company hosting the auction will specify the amount of time that must pass before an auction is considered closed. Some auction companies allow time extensions on individual lots if bidding is still active (called "staggered closings") and some auction companies elect to have all lots within their entire auction go in to extended bidding if any of the auction's lots are still being bid on.

Auctions close in a few different ways. Some auctions close at a set time, pre-determined by the auctioneer. Some auctions have a staggered closing. This will be specified in the auction terms with a start time. The first lot or group of lots will close at the specified time and subsequent lots will close after a certain amount of time has passed, either one by one or in defined groups of lots.

Either of these two types of auctions can also have dynamic or extended bidding. The auction will close only when bidding has stopped for a specified amount of time. If dynamic/extended bidding is active it will be mentioned in the terms and conditions along with the amount of time between bids necessary for an auction to close.

How do I know I if I've won an auction?

You will receive an invoice via email when you are the winning bidder.

How do I pay for my items?

Payment terms are specified in the auction's terms and conditions.

Can items be shipped?

Shipping is available on many auctions, but not all auctions that offer shipping will ship all items. Check in the Auction's Terms & Conditions for shipping costs and availability. Shipping is always at the expense of the buyer. Directions for arranging shipping can usually be found in the Auction Terms & Conditions. Questions can be directed to the Auctioneer or to Assiter Auctioneers.

Shipping insurance is recommended for all shipped items and must be arranged by the buyer. Assiter Auctioneers is not responsible for items damaged during the shipping and handling process.

How can I contact an auction company?

The "Ask the Auctioneer" form on the auction event page and on each lot page allows you to send a message to the hosting auctioneer. Questions that other users have asked can also be viewed on these pages. The auction company's contact details (address, phone number) are also available on the main auction page.

How can I search for a specific item?

Use the search bar at the top of the page to find a specific item in all Assiter Auctioneers auctions. You can narrow your search by category or view all lots that match your keyword in all categories. You can also save a search to revisit it later in your account under "Saved Search."

How do I print an auction's documentation?

On the auction event page and lot pages, there are links to download PDF files of the auction's brochure and packet.

How can I find an auction in my state?

All search results can be filtered by state or multiple states. These filters can be found in the left hand side bar on all search results pages. To view all auctions and then filter by state, simply select "Auctions by State" from the "Browse By" drop down on every page, and then filter by your state(s) on the left.

Bidding

Are there fees for bidding on an auction?

There are no charges to bid. Charges are only incurred if you are the winning bidder. Some auctions may be subject to a buyer's premium charge, which will be outlined in the terms & conditions of the auction.

How can I see the status of the items I've placed a bid on?

Click on My Items in the top right of every bidding page. That will bring up a list of the items you've placed bids on. Each item will list the time left in the auction, the current bid, your maximum bid and the status of the auction.

Can I raise my maximum bid (even if no one has outbid me)?

You may increase your maximum bid at any time before the auction has ended. If you decide to increase your bid while you are still the high bidder, the current bid will not increase (you will not be bidding against yourself).

How can I make sure I'm seeing the most up-to-date bids?

Remember to refresh often to be sure the bids on display are the most recent. Either use the refresh button next to each item in the catalog view or use the refresh button in your browser.

Why can't I place a bid?

To place a bid, you must be registered and approved for the auction. See how to register for an auction.

How do I remove a bid?

Once a bid has been placed, there is absolutely no way to cancel it under any circumstances.

What does it mean to "Force a bid"?

"Forced Bid" is a bidding strategy by which a bidder increases the bid by more than the next accepted bid (placing your bid at $150 when the next accepted bid is $125). This practice is used by some bidders to discourage others from bidding in hopes of acquiring an item at a lower price. There are many theories on the effectiveness of this practice and a bidder who wishes to apply it does so at their own discretion. The auction company will not lower the price of an item that has been won by a "forced" bid with no other competing bids.

Absentee Bid

A procedure which allows a bidder to participate in the bidding process without being physically present. A bidder submits an offer prior to the auction.

Absolute Auction

The property sells to the highest bidder regardless of price. There is no reserve price. This typically generates a much greater interest among potential buyers resulting in greater attendance at the auction, and a higher final sale price for the item being offered for sale.

As - Is

Selling the property without warranties as to the condition and/or the fitness of the property for a particular use. Buyers are solely responsible for examining and judging the property for their own protection. Otherwise known as "As Is, Where Is" and "In Its Present Condition.

Bid Increment

The minimum dollar amount that the current bid increases in price after each new bid.

Buyer's Premium

An amount (usually a percentage) that is added to the winning bid (hammer price) to determine the contract selling price which the buyer pays for the property being sold. The use of the buyer’s premium is so effective because it benefits both the buyers and the sellers.  Sellers benefit because it helps to defray many of the expenses associated with conducting an auction.  The buyer benefits because without the use of this tool, there may not have been an auction. The open and competitive bidding process might not exist if the buyer’s premium were not used to offset some of the auction related expenses.

Broker Participation

An arrangement for third-party brokers to register potential bidders for properties being sold at auction for a commission paid by the owner of the property or the auction firm.

Choice

When selling choice, the auctioneer is offering more than one item up for auction at a time. The winning bidder then has the choice to take one item or multiple items.  If the bidder wishes to take more than one item, the bid price will be multiplied by the amount of items the bidder chooses.

Extended/Dynamic Bidding

Auctions may extend the bidding time on any lot that gets a bid within a certain amount of time of its scheduled closing time. The auction will remain open for those lots until no bids are placed in the allotted amount of time. All lots not receiving a bid in the final minutes will close at the normal time. The auctioneer will determine the number of minutes necessary to activate dynamic bidding ahead of time.

Force Bid/Jump Bid

"Forced Bid/Jump Bid" is a bidding strategy by which a bidder increases the bid by more than the next accepted bid (placing your bid at $150 when the next accepted bid is $125). This practice is used by some bidders to discourage others from bidding in hopes of acquiring an item at a lower price. There are many theories on the effectiveness of this practice and a bidder who wishes to apply it does so at their own discretion. The auction company will not lower the price of an item that has been won by a "forced" bid with no other competing bids.

Internet Only Auction

A timed auction where bids can only be placed over the Internet by Assiter Auctioneers bidders. No live bidding is taking place at a physical location.

Live Auction

An auction that takes place at a designated place and time, where bidders can browse the auction lots and place their bids in person.

Lot

A group of items or a single item that are sold together at auction. Lots are determined before the auction and only the auctioneer can divide a lot. Each lot in an auction is numbered.

Maximum Bid

The maximum amount you are willing to pay for a lot. The price will only increase by the minimum increment, but will automatically raise to your maximum bid as others bid up the lot over time.

Reserve Price

The lowest price the seller is willing to sell the item. If the reserve price is not met at the auction, the item will not be sold.

Simulcast Auction

Live and online interactive bidding at the same time.

Staggered Closing

Auctions that begin to close and progress at a certain rate of lots instead of at one specific time. For example, an auction will close five lots every five minutes beginning at a certain time. This will be listed in the terms of the auction.

Multi - Parcel bidding system

The Multi-Parcel or "Multi-Par" system is a bidding system that allows selling in a combination format. It allows bidders to bid on individual lots or a combination of lots (usually parcels of land) throughout the auction. This system was developed to consolidate multiple bidding combinations and provide interested buyers the ability to configure their own combinations.

Seller Information

A real estate auction is the sale of real estate property in “As-Is” condition for the fair market value, using a competitive bidding process.

“As-Is” is a legal term and concept used to disclaim liability for an item being sold.  “As-Is” denotes that the seller is selling, and the buyer is buying, an item in whatever condition it presently exists, and that the buyer is accepting the item “with all faults,” whether or not immediately apparent.

The following information will provide a quick overview to help sellers learn more about the auction process.

Due Diligence

Prior to selling real estate by auction, it is important to have sufficient knowledge of the property as well as knowledge of the current market.  Assiter Auctioneers conducts due diligence by gathering facts and information about property and includes it in materials available to all bidders.

Auction Proposal 

Once due diligence is complete, Assiter Auctioneers will develop a proposal to outline the details of the auction process and how the property is going to be marketed. The auction proposal includes a property analysis, marketing plan, proposed schedule of events, financial projections, fee structure, and closing information.

Marketing Plan and Budget 

One of the most powerful success factors in using the auction method of marketing is an accelerated, polished, and comprehensive marketing plan. The marketing program is custom-designed to fit the needs of the seller and targets a prime audience suited for the property.  Because the lead-time in a real estate auction is generally short, the marketing program must be comprehensive, intense, and targeted to perspective buyers.  Marketing efforts typically begin six (6) weeks prior to the sale date.

Property Information Package 

The Property Information Package (PIP) is a comprehensive document that outlines important details of the property. Thorough research and a high standard of care are put into the development of the Property Information Package. By providing this information, bidders are given the confidence to participate in the auction possibly resulting in a higher sale price for the seller. This document is provided to all potential buyers.

Before the Bidding Begins

The auction begins promptly at the appointed time with opening remarks summarizing the terms of sale, the methods of bidding, and any last minute changes or disclosures. These comments usually take only a few minutes, concluding with the auctioneer answering any final questions.

Working with the Bidder Assistant

The Bidder Assistants are auction staff members who are positioned among the auction attendees to help all bidders communicate their offers to the Auctioneer. Bidders place a bid by raising their bidder card. It is a myth that bids can be made accidentally by scratching one’s nose or similar accidental movement. If a bid was not intended, the mistake is corrected by simply notifying a Bidder Assistant. Any tie bids or other issues regarding who has the high bid are always resolved by the Auctioneer, who has complete and final authority.

SOLD! 

From the first bid, things move quickly with bidders offering their bids up to the price they are willing to pay. It is not necessary, nor customary, for the Auctioneer to slowly announce, “Going once, going twice, etc.” When it is determined that the final bid has been made, the Auctioneer will identify and congratulate the high bidder. In a “subject to confirmation” auction, the seller retains the right to accept or reject the high bid within a specified time after the auction. If the auction is for a single property such as a home, this concludes the auction and the purchaser simply executes the Real Estate Purchase Agreement and makes the required Earnest Money Deposit.

CLOSING

Closing on the property typically takes place within 30-60 days from the date of the auction. Closing is not contingent on financing, appraisals, or inspections.

Auction Method vs. Traditional Listing 

AUCTION METHOD

  1. Property marketed separately
  2. Price negotiated up
  3. Up front marketing expenses
  4. Sold "As-is, Where-is"
  5. Pre-qualified bidders
  6. Pre-determinded sale date

TRADITIONAL LISTING

  1. Property listed in portfolio of other properties
  2. Price negotiated down
  3. Broker typically absorbs marketing fees
  4. Post sale contingencies
  5. Possible financing contingencies
  6. Sale date unknown

There are obvious differences between the auction method and the traditional listing real estate method. Many properties are suitable for the auction method of marketing compared to the traditional listing real estate method—sometimes referred to as “private treaty” sales. There are advantages and distinct differences in each method, but there is one common goal shared by both the Auctioneer and Real Estate Professional: to successfully sell the real estate and meet the needs of the seller. By understanding what each method has to offer, Auctioneers and Agents can take the “team approach” to serve the seller’s best interest.

Time

When using the auction method, there is a defined time to sell the property with a determined sale date. By specifying a sale date, a sense of urgency is created with potential buyers and this becomes a catalyst for the entire sales process. The auction method places multiple qualified buyers together in the same competitive marketplace, at an established time of sale. The seller is in control of time, thus controlling the financial impact of carrying costs.

With a traditional listing in a slowing market, it is possible that the property will remain on the market for months or even years, leading to price reduction to encourage buyer interest and activity. A property that remains on the market for an extended period can become a serious drain on the seller and his/her equity. Mortgage payments, maintenance, taxes and insurance can add up to thousands of dollars a month for some property owners. In addition to carrying costs, the time value of money is a cost that might be overlooked.  If the seller is in a position to sell the property quickly due to time and/or carrying costs, the auction method may serve his/her needs more effectively.

If a property fails to sell at auction, the high bid is considered as a valid offer on the real estate. Negotiations can begin between the high bidder and Seller to determine a sale price agreeable to both parties. In the case an agreement is not reached, the Auctioneer generally has a pre-determined time period following the auction to try and sell the property.  This time period can range anywhere between 30 days and six months and should be stated in the listing contract.  During this time, the Auctioneer may decide to sell the property using the traditional real estate listing method.

To list the property first before utilizing the auction method is not recommended. When a property has been on the market prior to an auction, a ceiling price is already established. When that price has been publicly advertised, it affects the psychology of the potential buyer and could remove the outcome of current market value. Auctions work best when bidders are allowed to make their own decisions regarding a property’s worth instead of a predetermined amount based on the seller’s expectation. If, after the competitive bidding process of the auction, the final outcome should fall short of the seller’s predetermined expectations, the seller still has the advantage of accepting the offer within the specified time resulting in the sale.

Early in the process of a traditional listing scenario, the seller may turn down an offer lower than the listing price only to regret the decision later.

Differentiation

When using the auction method, the property is marketed separately, and exclusively showcased throughout the marketplace providing maximum visibility among those interested in the property. It is a personalized marketing approach, targeting an audience with a higher percentage of interest.

With a traditional listing, the property is one of many properties listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). MLS is an effective tool for Agents/Brokers because it allows information on the property to be distributed to competing Agents/Brokers. This approach exposes the property to a large number of people, but not necessarily the “target market” for the property.

Price Negotiations

In the auction environment, the price of the property is negotiated through the competitive bidding of interested buyers.  The current market value of the real estate is what a buyer is willing to pay at the time of sale. Auctions establish this value and eliminate guesswork in determining the asking price through negotiating multiple offers one at a time, eliminating the hassle of unscheduled showings and long negotiation periods.

The seller determines a set asking price, with the risk of overpricing and seeing little interest, or under pricing and selling for less than the property is worth.  The actual selling price is negotiated over a long period of time, with the maximum selling potential limited by the asking price.

Marketing

The marketing strategy for the sell of real estate property at auction differs from the strategy of selling by listing. Using the auction method, the accelerated marketing campaign requires an up-front investment from the seller. This targeted and direct approach is designed to build value and awareness in the property. It should be considered an investment rather than an expense. This marketing campaign contributes greatly to the success of selling the property. In a traditional listing, the Agent/Broker typically markets the property along with other real estate listings. 

Contingencies

When using the auction method, the property is generally sold “As-Is, Where-Is.” The seller benefits from a contingency-free transaction. The sale of the property is not subject to financing or repairs because the Terms and Conditions of Sale are pre-set by the seller. The seller is always in control. With a traditional listing, post contract contingencies need to be met before the sale is final, or the sale may be contingent on the buyer’s financing.

Sure Realty One Group

"As a professional real estate agent, I tried to sell my own home in these bad economic times. I was very unsuccessful in this venture even though I had been in real estate for years. I wanted to sell quickly and move. I saw the home across the street being auctioned by Assiter Auctioneers. We had a meeting with them and were so impressed with their selling ideas and motivating buyers in a tough market. They held three well attended open houses and then came the auction. Assiter Auctioneers’ approach is unique as well as successful. Had we not hired them, we would still be in a house we no longer wanted. So if you want to sell quickly, hire Assiter Auctioneers. Believe me as a realtor, I would do it again in a second. Why put your life on hold when you can create a sale within weeks? Feel free to contact me for any references. I highly recommend Assiter Auctioneers in not only this market, but any time you want to sell.”

“My association with this organization over the past 8 years has been one of total satisfaction. Mr. Assiter and his associates have performed numerous services for AMRESCO including all types of auctions and appraisal services. In all cases, they have dealt with me with the highest level of professionalism and knowledge on each task assigned."

David P. Forbess, Principal

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

"I recommend Assiter Auctioneers, of Amarillo, Texas. They are very professional in business and as an auctioneer. They do an excellent job of advertising and organizing sales. They have the ability to control large crowds and get the highest return possible for the collateral being sold.

I have known Mr. Spanky Assiter for 6 years. He is the best auctioneer I have heard or worked with in my 33 years of banking and FDIC experience. He has a pleasant personality and a vibrant voice. He can hold the crowd’s attention and get them caught up in an enthusiastic mood and often sells collateral for more than the appraised values.

You can depend on them doing a good job for your office."

Charles H. Hill, Jr.
FDIC Bank Liquidation Specialist

New Century Services, Inc.

“Xcel Energy holds several public auctions each year to dispose of our surplus and used equipment. Since 1990, Assiter Auctioneers has conducted most of our auctions held in Amarillo & Lubbock, Texas and Roswell, New Mexico. All phases of these auctions were professionally handled and each auction generated excellent net proceeds, which is the basis for our evaluation of auction companies.

Xcel Energy regards Assiter Auctioneers as honest, reliable, dependable and professional. We would have no reservations using their firm in any of our future auctions.”

Terry L. Davis, C.P.M.
Investment Recovery Agent

Petroleum Transport, Inc.

"I would highly recommend Assiter Auctioneers for consideration regarding auction service needs that you may have from time to time. I have known Spanky Assiter and several of his associates for many years. I spent twelve years in the banking industry prior to returning to the petroleum industry. During that period of time, I employed Assiter Auctioneers on numerous occasions to perform auction services.

Spanky’s professionalism and working knowledge of various industries is superior to other auction companies that I have worked with."
