Our network of agencies and local representatives(PDF, 70 kB) throughout the Federal Republic of Germany ensures a rapid solution to all your property needs.
You wish to sell your property at our auctions:
Initially, please fill out the property specification form(PDF, 199 kB) as comprehensively as possible. If possible and available, add a marked cadastral map. Upon receipt of the documents, a member of our staff will contact you.
Your property specifications will be the basis for the assessment of the range of a possible reserve price (subject to an inspection). We will notify you of this rough estimate in order to establish whether this price largely meets your sale price expectations. If this is the case, we will inspect your property at short notice and notify you of a reserve price which is in line with the market and may be increased during bidding.
As a matter of course, the inspection as well as our consulting prior to the auction is free of charge. This also applies if you decide to not auction your property.
If you decide to offer your property for auction sale, it will be included in our catalogue with a circulation of about 60,000 print copies and 40,000 online catalogues for about 200,000 readers throughout the entire Federal Republic of Germany and in almost all European countries which guarantees that a very large readership is addressed. With this procedure and according to the general interpretation of law, our hammer prices create market prices.
An individual marketing concept will be drawn up for each property ranging from billposting to national advertising and the presentation in relevant internet portals. A comprehensive exposé, which can be obtained free of charge from interested parties prior to the auctions, will be prepared for each property. Furthermore, viewing appointments are offered and coordinated.
A total of 100 employed and free-lance staff members as well as 16 auctioneers (of whom 8 are publicly appointed and sworn-in) take care of the perfect preparation, conduct and handling of the auctions complying with economic and legal requirements.
The individual live auction days of our companies are visited by 200 to 600 persons every day. The average sales quota of our auction houses is at about 90% of the properties offered by catalogue or on Internet.
