Buyers

“The reality is that a bidder only has to be willing to bid once more than everyone else interested in the property in order to win.  It is a process that helps to assure the bidder that they are not overpaying.” – Matt Holiday, Auctioneer

Buyers choose to bid and buy real estate at auction with Matt Holiday Realty Group LLC because:

  • Buy at Competitive Purchase Price: Bidders like that the purchase price for real estate sold at auction is set by competitive bidding.  Seeing other bidders willing to pay a similar price reassures a buyer they are not paying too much.
  • Transparent Real Estate Transaction: Buyers like that they know the terms of the sale upfront.  
    • They know a date certain when the transaction will close. 
    • They know that there will not be long negotiations and complicated contingencies.  
    • They know that they are buying “as is “ and therefore they need to get all necessary inspections done before they bid.
    • They know that they have been given all available public information about the real estate upfront through the property information packet.
  • Motivated Seller: Buyers like dealing with a seller that wants to sell and is likely willing to sell the real estate for less at auction.  Bidders who understand auctions know that an auction seller values the certainty of sale, time value of money, and lack of contingencies with an auction over the option of waiting months or even years for a higher offer.
  • Honest and Fair Dealings: Serious bidders do their research in advance and know Matt Holiday Realty Group LLC’s reputation of honesty and fair dealing in past auction sales.   No funny business here.  We have real sellers and real bidders.  

What Our Clients Say

"I wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to you and your staff at Holiday Auctions. Our Girls Night Out event, which included a live and silent auction, was a complete success. You are a consummate professional; full of energy and passion that was necessary to connect people not only to the auction items, but that the proceeds bidding on those items would greatly benefit the Greenville Rape Crisis and Child Center (GRCCAC). I was so amazed at your connection to the entire audience; you commanded their attention and made the entire process memorable and fun. Lastly, the sincerity expressed during the bidding on the art piece by Jared Emerson as well as during the "Fund a need,”was touching. You spoke from a place of healing, which is the message that we try to convey to all that come in contact with GRCCAC.

I know that a huge part of the eveningʼs success is because of you. I speak for the staff, volenteers and Board of Directors when I say, without hesitation, we will invite you back next year. Again, thank you for doing a fabulous job."
