Print Sale Process Infographic

Pre-Meeting Inspection

Inspect property

We’ll look over your property and the surrounding area to familiarize ourselves with and understand what you’re selling.

Preliminary research

Because of our experience, we’re able to quickly research factors that will affect salability and marketability of your property.

Look at comparable sales

A thorough search of land sales comparable to your property will help us determine a realistic value.

Meet with Client to Discuss

Motivation—Situation

People sell for different reasons. We’ll sit down with you to learn your motivation and understand the situation you’re in to help you solve it.

Property Attributes

Besides what we learn from the inspection, preliminary research, and comparable sales, we want to further understand the unique things about your property and help you tell your story to prospective buyers.

Market Pulse

Our connections and track record keep us current on market conditions so we can offer sound advice as you move through this important decision.

Valuation

We don’t believe in telling you what you want to hear. Based on our experience, knowledge, and expertise, we’ll be realistic and straightforward when valuing your property.

Method of Sale

Once we learn your situation and motivation, we’ll explain to you the pros and cons to help you decide whether to sell by auction or private treaty.

If Auction Method

Average 76 days

When selling by auction, you’ll have a specific date the property will sell. Reck Agri averages 76 days from signing of the listing agreement to the closing of the property when selling by auction.

Live vs. online only

We offer a choice on which auction format to use – an exciting live auction or an auction where bidding takes place exclusively online over a period of time where the bidder remains anonymous via our mobile app and/or home computer.

Transparency

Auctions allow transparency between competing bidders and when working with multiple sellers.

Increases marketability

Offering land for sale in parcels, combos, and/or units in a multi-parcel auction can increase the marketability of your property by allowing you to draw from a larger pool of buyers with different levels of purchasing power and interest in various types of property.

Simplifies transaction

Auctions simplify the transaction by limiting the negotiations between multiple parties by determining the terms of the auction one time, then agreeing to sell to the highest bidder.

Set date property will sell

With an auction, you’ll know exactly what date your property will be sold.

Creates Value

Auctions create value through competitive bidding – especially by giving buyers an opportunity to purchase property they may otherwise never have a chance to purchase.

Serious Buyers

The buyer agrees to the terms of auction with 15% of purchase price due at signing of contract with no financing contingencies. By agreeing to these terms, you can be sure buyers are serious.

If Private Treaty

Average 3-6 months

Properties we sell by private treaty average 3-6 months until sold.

Control price and terms

Private treaty sales allow the seller to determine and control asking price and the terms of sale.

Private contract negotiations

The private nature of this sale method allows you to consider offers at your discretion.

Buyers negotiations price and terms

The price and terms of the sale are confidentially negotiated between the seller and buyer.

No time contraints

A private treaty sale offers flexibility with the length of time your property is listed.

Sign Listing Contract

Seller commits

Once the seller commits, we’ll work together to determine terms and conditions of the sale and prepare the listing contract for signature. At this point, the property is officially listed for sale and the process begins.

Service Listing

120 point checklist

No stone is left unturned as we complete a detailed 120-point checklist on every listing to ensure you get the most for your property.
