Buyers Attracted to Online Auction of a Unique, Bank-Owned Land Parcel near Columbus Central Business District

Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

This real estate auction, featuring a development site of approximately 43 acres, sits on the westerly side of Grove City, which is considered one of the faster growing suburbs of the City of Columbus. About 8 miles southwest of the Columbus Central Business District, this development site is located directly across from the Central Crossing School Complex (Central Crossing High School and Holt Crossing Intermediate School) and South-Western Career Academy near the intersection of Holt Road and Big Run South Road.

The zoning on this bank-owned property is split; CPD (Commercial Planned Development) for the frontage and multi-family for the rear portion, affording itself to a unique development opportunity of retail shopping and apartments or condominiums.

Attracting much interest from local homebuilders, developers and real estate investors, the online auction on the Freedom Realty Exchange ( delivers a fair and competitive online bidding process which will bring true market value to the property and the seller.

The inventory levels of similar land is high, but when a seller such as this bank steps up and sets a minimum bid well below market value, its hard for buyers to ignore, states Ryan Devin with the auction company.

As an alternative choice to a traditional real estate sale, online auctions can be particularly effective for financial institutions that want to, or need to, get the inventory off their books quickly and believe that the auction creates a trading platform bringing buyer and seller together in such a way that fair market value is realized. Evident by the minimum bid of $ 499,000, less than $ 12,000 per acre, the bank is very motivated to sell.

We have had a good response from interested parties, mostly local builders and investors, but also some from out of state, who see the upside in purchasing at a discount, waiting until the market turns and then being in a great position to take advantage of it, states Devin.

As with all of auctions on the Freedom Realty Exchange website, property research, due diligence and bidding are conducted completely online, removing the inconvenience and unwanted pressure that comes with a traditional outcry auction. Interested buyers can access property documents and auction details by visiting Bids must be submitted by April 26th.

Online Innovations Threaten Traditional Real Estate Model

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) March 16, 2012

The Real Estate Helpers did it again. The real estate company is known for its unique and innovative practices. These unconventional methods certainly seem to be working as evidenced by the number of successes they’ve achieved when pitted against traditional real estate agents. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding, and the latest results are in, showing that The Real Estate Helpers has once again trumped the competition and sold a historic house for more than was expected. It was just 6 days using only the Internet.

When the owners of the historic house announced they were selling, a deluge of local real estate agents naturally showed interest in handling the sale. They all wanted a minimum of $ 14,000 upfront for advertising costs. The bulk of this money would have been wasted on print media or newspaper advertising, The Real Estate Helpers company head Lloyd Jenman points out. “Agents love to demand upfront advertising budgets because local newspaper advertising is how they promote their agency – the more advertising agents do, the more successful they’ll look”. French Provincial Kitchens . In effect, newspaper advertising benefits real estate agents more than home sellers.

The owners of the property wanted a stress-free sale and would rather not to do an auction; however, all the local real estate agents recommended auction as their preferred method of sale. The owners were also uncomfortable with the idea of having their home open for inspection as they didn’t want strangers wandering through their home. This indicated that they were not enthusiastic about the common way agents conduct their work.

Something that the owners did, which was very helpful to their undertaking, was to get a valuation before listing their property for sale. This spared them the trouble of dealing with real estate agents who usually resorted to over-quoting the likely selling price of a house just to win the business.

In comparison with the local agents, The Real Estate Helpers people offered options that were more appealing to the clients. For instance, they recommended private inspections, which were done by appointment only. More importantly, they didn’t ask the owners to pay any money for advertising. They were to be paid for results, offering clients a rock-solid guarantee. “If our clients are not happy with our performance they can terminate our authority with 7 days notice in writing. We don’t need to lock clients in to long contracts because we know that if we’re always doing the right thing by them, they will stay with us”, Jenman avers. “Traditional real estate offices lock their clients in for long periods of time, which is typically a minimum of 90 days, and when sellers finally can leave, they often don’t because they’ll be forced to pay a big advertising bill.”

The advertising angle adopted by The Real Estate Helpers, which breeds the finest real estate agents Melbourne has ever produced, was also a stroke of genius. “We advertised the fact that the property was ‘built for the first chemist in Hawthorn’. This is important because the buyers are chemists who own and run a local pharmacy”, Jenman explains.

In this case The Real Estate Helpers quoted buyers a higher ‘buy-it-now’ price, rather than a low ‘bait’ price most real estate agents use to hook buyers. This pricing strategy worked well for the cautious home sellers. Within a few days they had five buyers come back for a second inspection, and on the sixth day, the property was sold.

The site attracts millions of visitors every month, and its social media clout makes it one of the most viral brands online with over 400,000 followers on Twitter and over 250,000 fans on Facebook.

The site is based on bite-sized brotips that users read, post and forward to their friends, which propels each tip to spread virally across users social networks. Brotips are written in a unique narrative and voice and cover topics such as dating, school, friends and bromance. Essentially, Brotips has taken a large, niched and non-inclusive culture and redefined it, says Yousef Khraibut, Co-Founder and President of Brotips. Unlike traditional bro media, the site has built its reputation and following by redefining the bro from the traditional alpha-male jock to instead represent a gender-neutral outlook on the everyday havocs of life. no deposit slots .

In the sites earlier days, tips were almost always written by the founders; however, with the growing community of visitors, a larger number of the tips are now user-submitted and moderated by the Brotips team.

The real kicker and often a surprise to those who follow the brand is that the sites founders are under 20 years old and yet have developed a brand and online property that extends across demographic and geographic bounds

This investment from Mark will enable the team to focus on increasing the brands clout as well as further develop the business for licensing, ad partnerships and other opportunities. The Brotips brand and its growing clout online makes it an attractive property with a number of viable opportunities ahead of it, said Cuban.

The company also recently signed with one of the worlds largest talent and literary agencies out of New York on a prospective book deal as well as initiated early discussions with the firms LosAngeles team for a potential TV show based on the brand.

For the young founders, who remain out of the spotlight as much as possible, this is only the beginning, with plenty of good things ahead.
