SOLD: Someone made an outstanding offer bid just after the preview and the seller took it! All real estate auctions are typically subject to prior sale. It’s practically a nationwide phenomenon and certainly a local and regional one. The bidding starts almost immediately after we sign the listing agreement, often before the sign goes in the yard. It’s happening over and over. The seller loves the early bid, says SOLD, and as they say: “the rest is history”. Call us to L I S T your RARE Property or to have your name placed on our "FIRST CONTACT" for RARE properties list. Whether you want to buy or sell a RARE home, farm, lake, or recreational property call RARE Auction Group today. Thank you.   Robert Alexander CIA, Broker, & Auctioneer   PS: See you Thursday for all the personal property – the house and buildings are FULL!
