Are land auctions a good idea?
While traditional land sale transactions can drag on for many months and are full of drawbacks and pitfalls, land auctions are a much simpler, quicker and more reliable way to become a land owner. No estate agent’s commission is to be paid. At a land auction, buyers are never obliged to pay more for their purchase than the price of the auction. There is no smooth-talking salesman to coerce them into a higher price. For sellers, the benefit is that they are guaranteed for the transaction by means of setting a reserve price on the sale.
