Live Auctions-Online Auctions-Social Distance Online Auctions Consignments-Estate Cash Buyouts

Free Consultations. We are happy to offer free consultations in either live in-person form, or virtually.  We are also happy to offer the option of the Socially Distanced Auction method to those who are interested.

In Person: We come to you, free of charge and examine your real estate or household contents and advise the costs on the spot.

Virtual Consultation: You send us a sufficient quantity of photos and we will be able to advise auction costs based on those photos and description of the property. In this time of social distancing, some of our clients have chosen this to minimize the amount of times that they need to interact with others in person. In fact, with proper coordination, we can even go a step further and we can arrange to have your goods inventoried and sold without your physical presence.  This is what we refer to as the social distance auction method. We contract with you, inventory and conduct an online liquidation of your items without you needing to be present.  We do the work and you simply cash the proceeds check we mail you upon settlement.  Feel free to ask us more about this option!

Live & Online Auctions

Franklin County Estate & Auction Service offers our clients several options to liquidate their belongings.  The two most popular are Live On-location Auctions and Online Auctions.

Online Auctions

Franklin County Estate & Auction Service  offers Online Auctions for those who may wish to liquidate their home or estate without having a live on location auction. While we are happy to conduct a live auction for you, some of our clients have opted for the online auction method.  This method is often chosen by those who may not have ideal parking for a live auction or that may not wish to have a large gathering at their location. Online Auctions allow for the liquidation of the contents of your home, farm or estate, yet allow sellers to maintain social distancing and privacy concerns associated with large gatherings.

No matter what you chose, Franklin County Estate & Auction Service has you covered! Live Auctions and Online Auctions are both great ways to liquidate your personal property or real estate.  We are happy to meet with you live in person or virtually to give you a free consultation where we can give you the benefits of either auction method!

REAL ESTATE

The current Real Estate market is very much a seller's market! There are often multiple buyers interested in any given property. The auction method of selling guarantees that you will realize the maximum price for your home, farm or land! As a seller, you still set the minimum price. Franklin County Estate & Auction Service charges a seller's commission about half that of listing with a standard realtor.  Please contact us about selling your home through auction. We conduct stand alone real estate auctions in both live and online platforms.  But, if you have both real estate and the home contents  to sell, seller will  receive an additional discount!

ESTATES & HOUSEHOLDS

COMPLETE ESTATE LIQUIDATION

When a loved one passes, it is a difficult time.  Often family members are faced with the reality of having to dispose of one or more generations worth of personal possessions.  Garage sales can be difficult due to having to take the time to organize and price everything.  Franklin County Estate & Auction Service personnel take many of these headaches away by organizing all items in a manner which will ensure sale for the highest price. We encourage those who have been charged with liquidating an estate to contact us for a Free consultation to determine if your estate should be auctioned.

FARMS

FARM AUCTION SPECIALISTS

Farms and machinery sales are right up our alley.  Auctions are by far the best means of liquidating the contents of a farm. There is often so many items, that there are few other ways to effectively sell it all.  We advertise in the places that buyers for farm implements and machinery look.  Farm auctions have always had a huge following here in Missouri.  People attend them for a variety of reasons. Machinery, guns, antiques, tools, etc.  One thing is certain. Most everyone who bothers to go to a farm auction buys something. The more buyers, the more competition to bid. Please do not hesitate to contact us concerning your farm auction needs.

ANTIQUES

AUCTIONS ARE THE BEST WAY TO SELL ANTIQUES!

Here in Missouri, most farms, estates or household sales have some kind of antiques.  There are many antique collectors in Missouri. There are many people who love to decorate their homes with antiques. We are trained to recognize and appraise antiques within estates and farms and advertise those which have a broad appeal to collectors so they bring the highest potential price at auction.

REAL ESTATE & BUSINESS

Auctions are effective ways to sell homes, property and business!

If you have a home or business to sell, either with or without the contents, we can help!  If you do not already have a price in mind, we will give an honest assessment of value and help you reach a price that you would sell your home for.  When auctioning a home or property you set the minimum price that the property must bring in order to sell. Just as if you were listing with a standard real estate agent. What benefits do you get when auctioning your home over a standard sale? Our seller commissions are about half that of real estate agents, which puts more money in your pocket!  Also, with an auction, buyer's compete and bid against each other, which in turn can result in a higher selling price than what you had set! We also sell your home "As-Is" which means you will not have to offer a warranty on the home or be responsible for making improvements. It sells in the condition it is in and the sale is final. There are also no contingencies, which mean that those who bid must be prepared to place a non refundable cash deposit down payment the day they win the bid. This helps ensure that the Buyers who bid in a real estate auction have their money in place before they bid. This greatly increases the outcome that the sale will complete and close on time!  The current real estate market is indeed a seller's market. The auction method of sale offers you the best opportunity to achieve the maximum sale price! Contact us if you are considering selling your home, farm or acreage. We also conduct real estate appraisals for those needing this service. Franklin County Estate & Auction can also conduct your business liquidation sale or auction!

Estate-House

Buyout Option

Need Cash Now??  While in most circumstances, a traditional on site auction will yield you the highest return, there are times when it may not suit you. 

Do any of these situations apply to you:

- I need money Now!

- I do not have a good location to have an auction.

- I do not have enough to warrant an on site auction. 

- I don't want to deal with it and just want it gone!

- The idea of an auction is overwhelming and having a tag sale will still leave me with a ton of leftover stuff.

We can offer you a solution! If you just want to be done with it, we can come out and give you a bid on what we would pay for the entire contents of your estate, business, farm, household or real estate! If you accept it, all you will have to do is take the money and you're done! We will remove all the contents in a timely manner and at no expense to you. If you feel you might want to explore this option, please ask about a free review and offer.
