Auction in the Chicagoland Area

Real Estate Agent with United Country Beloit Auction and Realty Inc.

Let's face it.  The perception that there is a stigma in selling real estate by auction and that it is just for tax sales, foreclosures, or other non-owner requested type sales does not exist anymore. Owners all over the country use the auction method to sell their real estate, and finally Northern Illinois is catching up with that trend.

United Country Beloit Auction and Realty is excited to be leaders in this exciting segment of the real estate business.  In today's real estate climate, sellers are looking for new and exciting ways to sell their property.  

We have two sales in the Chicagoland area coming up that everyone will want to check out!  We are conducting a multi-parcel real estate auction in Cary, Illinois at 6314 Silver Lake Trl.  Come check out this auction featuring four buildable lots (one of the middle lots has a three-bedroom home already).  We will conduct this sail on site on August 26th at 1PM. 

Hope to see you there,

Marketing costs are charged to the seller, but we work hard to make an event of the sale day.  It's a flat fee ranging from 750 to 2000 dollars depending on what the seller wants.

Our signage is a big part of our marketing...newspaper adverstising, open houses/previews, direct mailing, mailing to our investor lists, in-house displays, internet - both our local site, as well as the United Country national addition we can do radio ads, billboards, the United Country specialty magazines, etc.  We work very hard marketing the properties we list, and we are proud of our efforts in this area. 

 Thanks for your inquiry, and please let me know if you have any other questions.

John is right about auctions....they are a fabulous way to buy or sell. In one day you get to sell your house or buy a house, kind of like the good old days. As a buyer you come prepared to bid whatever amount you are want to pay for the property and know you only have to outbid the the last bidder. As seller you get to watch the true market work for you as bidder bid what they are willing to pay for your property in the end it should be a win-win situation. The buyer pays what they want and the seller gets what they want. Check out our website at to see all the real estate auctions we have coming up.
