What does it cost?

The Auctionarium, utilizes a combination of live and/or internet bidding to obtain the highest prices for our sellers. There is an "auction entry fee" to cover the production costs of an auction plus a final value fee commission.

The type of auction methodology used varies according to the type of auction (legal or voluntary) combined with the projected auction value of a particular group of assets.

The Auctionarium charges a staggered commission for personal property of 25% to 50% depending upon the selling price of each auction event produced for our customers.

The Auctionarium charges auction entry fees based upon the size and scope of your auction to cover the hard costs of setting up, marketing and producing your auction event.

Abandoned Personal Property Auctions are a flat rate $1,495.00 entry fee which includes the cost of inventory / catalog, publication of legal notices and auction day services.

Estate Auctions held at the house where nothing has to be relocated or moved typical entry fee is $2,500 to $5,000 unless there are a lot of very high value items that require special handling.

Real estate auctions for a typical home $5,000 auction entry fee and the buyer usually pays the commission, closing costs & escrow fees with the seller keeping 100% of the high bid or hammer price.

Remember Uncle Jesse says "...There is nothing more expensive than a cheap auctioneer..." meaning if you are shopping based on the lowest percentage please don't waste our time. If you want to engage the person who signed the largest auction contract in history who has a track record of selling out everything for top dollar then please give us a call.
