“Our seller recognizes the value of using an accelerated method of marketing – in other words, an auction – to sell their property,” said Phil Brown, broker partner with United Country – Trophy Properties & Auction. “What does this mean for buyers? It means they have the opportunity to purchase part or all of a great piece of Illinois acreage at an affordable price. Today’s market conditions and the auction format allow sellers and buyers to come to a meeting of the minds quickly with a competitively achieved fair market value. In times like these, an auction is the best way to establish what real market value is.”
