The Auction Sales Method is fast becoming the accepted method to sell all types of properties where the seller wants to limit their holding period, risk and expenses. The FDIC praises the success of selling real estate and assets with the auction method. 

The Father Time® Auction method of marketing accelerates the selling process, in both a buyer's and seller's markets and creates the maximum exposure of a property bringing it to the front of the line.

When a traditional real estate sales listing may not be a successful choice, a Father Time® auction becomes the seller's workout solution that markets and sells a property in a 3-4 week period. Sale of real estate through traditional methods cannot typically match this schedule.
