Want to get your items in front of a bigger audience of buyers who will actually compete to buy your things rather than hoping someone will show up? Have you been told you don’t have enough “stuff” by an estate sale person? Think your items deserve better than the average tag or clearance sale audience?
Auction Hosting gives you the opportunity to reach a global audience, save some money, and get rid of your unwanted items. You “build” your own auction and we handle all of the marketing, payments, pick-ups and shipping. Auction Hosting on Colorado Premier Realty & Auction Services website is perfect for
businesses who want clear out “last year’s models” or overstocks,
resellers who want to clear some space for new inventory, and
individuals trying to downsize collections, eliminate storage, and regain space.
How Does Auction Hosting Work?
1. Consultation with an Auction Pro
Colorado Premier Realty & Auction Services will send one of our Auction Pros to your location to view the items you want to sell and give you some tips and pointers on staging, grouping, and sale order. We will discuss how to write descriptions and take pictures that will help your items sell for top dollar.
2. Catalog Your Auction
Cataloging includes photographing, numbering, tagging, and describing your inventory. Colorado Premier Realty & Auction Services will provide you with a spreadsheet to write your descriptions, measurements, and any other important information for each of your items. By doing this yourself, you avoid cataloging fees and save money. You work at your own pace and intensity. (Don’t worry! We are just a phone call away if you get stuck!)
3. Editing and Uploading
After cataloging your auction, you will give us all of the photos and completed spreadsheet and one of our Auction Pros builds your auction catalog. During this process, we are looking for spelling errors and mismatches between photos and descriptions. (We can’t fix blurry pictures or inaccurate descriptions so you want to be mindful when you are cataloging.) Once editing is completed, our Auction Pros upload your auction catalog into our online bidding platform – the process of editing and uploading usually happens within 72 hours from the time we receive your photos and descriptions.
4. Auction Time
We run most of our auctions for 7 to 12 days – meaning the auction is available for bidding for about a week. During that time, we answer phone calls about the auction itself – if we need additional information about a specific item, we will call you. Our auctions average 10K views each and your auction will be featured right beside them! Once your auction is “live”, we will market your auction through several outlets, including Facebook, Instagram, Estatesales.net, and GoToAuction.com. In addition, we send out auction notifications to our email list with over 5,000 subscribers. Your auction will be featured right beside our other auctions on our website’s “Current Auctions” page. (Don’t worry – we do not disclose the location of the items until AFTER the auction closes and only to winning bidders.)
5. Post-Auction Processes
After the conclusion of the auction, Colorado Premier Realty & Auction Services will send out invoices, collect payments, and schedule pickups for winning bidders. One of our Auction Pros will come to your location to assist with local pickups of sold items as well as retrieve items to be shipped to any non-local bidders. (We can also help you strategize what to do with unsold items at this time.) You will need to be available for the entirety of the pick-up day.
6. You Get Paid
After all sold items are picked-up or shipped, you will receive a check for the proceeds of the sale (minus commission and hosting fees) as well as a detailed settlement statement listing everything that was sold and its sale price. Checks are typically mailed within 14 business days of the auction close.
Colorado Premier Realty & Auction Services charges a $500 hosting fee plus a 35% commission on all sold items. The hosting fee includes:
- Hosting your auction on our website
- One 2-hour cataloging tutorial with one of our Auction Pros
- Editing your auction (up to 3 hours)
- Marketing and advertising
- Handling all bidder inquiries
- Managing invoicing and collecting payments from bidders
- Assisting with item pick-up (up to 4 hours) and shipping transfers
- Shipping to non-local bidders
*** If you require additional help in the cataloging process outside of the 2 hour tutorial or require an excessive amount of editing you will be charged $50/hr per employee for these additional services ***
