The Slyman Auction Method

The auction steps are very simple! At Slyman Auction we have a proven and systematic plan for success! 

  • Scheduling an initial meeting with us for consultation.
  • An on-site inspection and evaluation of your property.
  • You will receive a written proposal detailing your auction date, location, time, advertising costs, commission, all auction-related expenses, and other matters.
  • After the terms in the proposal have been agreed upon, it is legalized with a written agreement signed by both the seller and Slyman Auction.
  • Typically a three week marketing campaign will begin advertising your property.
  • Auction day will occur on-site.
  • Closing within 30 days!
