Consider the number of properties you have, the number of units in each property, and the maximum number of tenants in each unit. The more units you have, the more time you need to commit to each unit’s complaints, maintenance problems, vacancies, rental fees, and contracts.

auctionhouseWe run an auction house located in central-Ohio. There are over 2,000,000 people residing within 50 miles of our facility and we have bidders sometimes come from over 300 miles away. We’ve run weekly auctions at this same location for over 13 years.

Our average crowd numbers right around 250. We’ve had over 700 in attendance when our inventory was widely varied and interesting, and we’ve had only 100 bidders when we’ve had a narrow inventory such as just coins, just matchbox cars or just guns.

On average, we run 2 or 3 auctioneer rings, and we’re fortunate to have Peter Gehres and Laura Mantle currently helping us…
