Since launching the first online auction of properties owned by Heartland Financial USA in early 2011, FRE.com has sold multiple properties across the U.S. Because of this solid track record and the best of breed auction marketing methods of Freedom Realty Exchange, Heartland knew the online auction route was the only solution to quickly sell their current inventory of bank-owned real estate.
“The benefit of selling real estate by auction is best achieved when the seller completely understands the auction approach, is fully invested in the process and has realistic expectations of the market,” states Ryan Devin, director of Auction Operations. “Heartland encompasses all three of these elements - that’s why their auctions lead to successful sales. “
This lender-ordered real estate auction features a diverse group of properties:
The minimum bids for all the properties are surprising low, a clear message from the seller to buyers that they are motivated to sell and encourage ready, willing and able buyers to step up and bid.
All bidding is conducted online allowing buyers from anywhere to participate without the hassle or pressure of being on-site to place their bid. Also, due diligence materials are available for download on FRE.com.
Interested buyers can access specific property documents, photos and auction details by visiting FRE.com/131R2. Bids must be submitted by August 10th.
