Why Sell Real Estate with Alex Cooper Auctioneers?

    With our world-class digital bidding, platform and nearly a century of business, Alex Cooper Auctioneers is dedicated to making selling your property easy. If you have a property to sell, our team can help you succeed.




      ** Speedy Process & Quick Turnaround**

    A property auction has a set date and time which can expedite the sale process. Alex Cooper typically markets their properties between 14 and 21 days.  This quick turnaround can be particularly advantageous for sellers who need to sell their property promptly.

         **Elimination of Negotiations**

    In an auction, the seller sets the terms and conditions of the sale. Therefore, there's no need to negotiate terms with buyers.

    **Certainty of Sale**

    Once the auction hammer goes down, the sale is legally binding. This means the buyer cannot back out without facing serious legal consequences.

     **Immediate Deposit**

    The winning bidder must provide a 10% non-refundable deposit, which can provide the seller with quick financial assurance.



    A Real Estate Auction creates an event generating greater demand for buyers to compete for your property by submitting bids that determine the fair market value.  

    Auctions often draw a large crowd and can garner more attention than traditional real estate listings, potentially exposing your property to a broader pool of potential buyers. 

    **Potential For Higher Price**

    In some cases, the competitive nature of auctions can result in a higher sale price sale than might have been achieved through a private sale.  



    An Alex Cooper Auction offers built-in protection for the seller called a reserve.  Reserves shield sellers against any low offers or failed auctions.  We ensure your interests are always protected!  Should you choose to not accept a bid below the reserve price you do not owe any financial compensation to Alex Cooper.




    Since 2017 Alex Cooper Auctioneers has operated a World Class digital auction platform that connects sellers to an extensive network of buyers.  Our platform has over 43,500 buyer accounts.   In one convenient location, buyers can browse properties for sale and participate in online auctions via desktop computers and mobile devices- an easier process than traditional in-person events.

    Timed online auctions allow potential buyers from various geographical locations to participate, broadening the buyer pool and potentially increasing the final sale price.  Our platform also allows buyers to leave a maximum bid if they are not available during the conclusion of the auction.  

    With a specified end time, sellers are not left waiting for an unspecified period; plus, the 3-minute soft close ensures that bidding wars can occur ensuring all interested parties have an equal opportunity to win.



    At Alex Cooper Auctioneers, our Auctions incite a competitive atmosphere among potential buyers, which can result in higher final sale prices.

    Traditional real estate listings typically have an asking price, which can limit the potential sale price. Auctions, however, have no price ceiling, and the final sale price can exceed expectations in competitive scenarios.


    We provide sellers with full-service marketing solutions from strategizing and budgeting, to creative design and the latest digital resources. Our goal is to generate maximum exposure for properties, drive traffic to our auctions, and help bidders find their dream real estate property.
