Why sell at auction?
Auctions are one of the oldest forms of selling property; their history spans centuries. And time has only increased its popularity. A research study commissioned by the National Auctioneers Association shows that auctioneering is an industry on the rise.
Did you know that more than half of the total U.S. population has attended a live auction?
In 2004, the value of all goods and services sold at live auction in the U.S. was approximately $202.7 billion. This figure is up 6.8% over 2003 and translates into a huge number of satisfied buyers and sellers of goods.
They’re entertainment at their finest. That’s what most consumers say about auctions and that’s the number one reason they attend. So what makes them so fun and entertaining? Some say it’s the unexpected and the idea of experiencing something original.
All in all:
- 83% think auctions are an exciting way to get good deals
- 51% think they offer a great value on items
- 65% think auctions offer exciting items they wouldn’t otherwise purchase
- 53% like the excitement of getting a good price
In addition, consumers find auctions fun because they’re a rewarding activity for the whole family to enjoy. On average, consumers are willing to drive 1.3 hours to attend a live auction, with 75% bringing the family when they go.
