Auction Marketing


Determine market value

  • The first step we take in the listing process is a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) which is a comprehensive search and review of similar or comparable properties sold within the past year using data from sales in the Realtor network, public auction and private treaty sales.  Included is a review and consideration of zoning and sub-division regulations in order to determine the best approach to obtain highest current value.

Place Advertising

  • At Petersheim & Longenecker we have accounts and templates in place with local and national advertising newspapers and magazines in order to market your property to the exact buyer group you choose to target.  We utilize the internet through our website, and the National Auctioneers Association to maximize your properties exposure to the largest and best qualified number of buyers possible
  • Professional Auction signs on site with a general description of the property, the number of acres (if required), zoning, and the auction date.
  • Brochure boxes on site at the auction sign with color picture brochures available for interested parties.
  • Directional signs from major routes
  • Deed plotting and boundary line descriptions as needed
  • Real Estate Broker Participation (when that marketing option is chosen by the seller)
