One common question from real estate agents who are new to online auctions: "Will it work in my area?"
The answer is that as long as people in your area have access to the Internet, than yes it will work. If people have no access or only slow dial-up than it will still work, just probably not as well.
Even if no one locally has Internet access, which is rare, you can still reach a world-wide audience of buyers and you just never know who may be interested.
The Internet is a powerful medium, and an online real estate auction will help you reach the most buyers possible in the shortest amount of time.
So, yes an online real estate auction will most likely work in your area! The real question is, will you be the leader or follower?
