Maltz Auctions has the expertise to negotiate the sale of real, personal and intellectual property to a third party without conducting a formal auction.
What situations are best for brokered sales?
Brokered sales are predominantly used when assets are very unique and difficult to sell, a low-profile sale is desired or it’s an extremely time-sensitive situation. When an extremely limited market exists, it is often in the seller’s best interest to utilize this controlled sales method. Conducting a brokered sale allows us to find the perfect buyer/seller match, generating a greater selling price than would be realized at auction.
The brokered sales method may also be desired when a sensitive or discreet situation exists. If the seller desires to maintain a low-profile and not have the tremendous publicity an auction generates, a brokered sale is the ideal method.
In early December, a potential client requested our services to sell a commercial property with one requirement. The property had to be sold and closed before December 31st. With a minimum acceptable selling price of $600,000, we compiled a compressed marketing campaign and actively solicited our database. We successfully completed the engagement in under three weeks for a purchase price of $975,000 (62.5% in excess of our minimum target price).
With a network of strategic alliances throughout the United States, we are able to offer the efficient liquidation of virtually any asset.
