Selling Real Estate
In today's unpredictable economy, selling real estate can be confusing and at times frustrating. The process can often leave the seller in a position of vulnerability and accepting terms that are not always in their best interest.

Whether you are just beginning to consider selling your property or have already tried multiple methods of selling, it is wise to explore the option of selling by auction. As a recognized leader for property auctions in southeast Wisconsin and anywhere the need arises within the state of Wisconsin, Stan Jones (link to his story) and the Unified Jones Auction & Realty office are uniquely qualified because Stan specializes in BOTH the 'auction' and 'traditional' methods of selling real estate. This web site offers a number of resources to assist in that decision-making process.

The "AUCTION VS. TRADITIONAL" section below provides a brief side-by-side comparison of the auction and traditional sales approach. For a more in-depth look, view the "BENEFITS TO SELL BY AUCTION" information below then, in the "QUESTION & ANSWER" section, we've collected some of the most common questions sellers have asked us over the years and provided the answers for you.

The best way to know if traditional or auction is right for you is to talk with us. The team at Unified Jones Auction & Realty will personally take time to discuss the options for selling your home, land, business or property and find the best solution for your needs. Make sure to complete the "FREE PROPERTY ANALYSIS" form so we may personally consult with you and provide our expert recommendation of auction or traditional for the sale of your home, land, business or any real estate property.

Special Note for REALTORS: If you are a realtor assisting a current or prospective seller, we have special partner programs that allow you to participate in auctions for your clients. We are happy to help you determine if auction is an appropriate strategy for your seller.
