This cartoon says it all. The numbers in the title are the current stats of one of the recent auctions using the RE Auction Systems platform. It's just an example of what can be done that is different than the "norm". In this or any market, it no longer makes sense to put a "For sale" sign out and wait.
Seller's and their agents need to take the lead. Using an online auction gets buyers to take action. It really is the best way to get a property sold.
