A Real Estate Auction to Benefit Animals

Two years ago I had the privilege of selling an estate property in Baltimore City that had been willed to the Richmond SPCA. Not only was the property a hidden gem, the fact that so many animals lives were going to benefit made it a truly exciting project.

 

Luckily the auction was covered by our local news; here are two reports:

The opportunity to auction real estate to benefit a non-profit organization is a great honor I hope to have again (and again)

in my career.

 

In the case of this property, the entire proceeds went to benefit the organization. A benefit auction can also be structured where a portion of the proceeds benefit a charitable cause, especially in cases where sellers want to be generous but need to retain some of the proceeds for their own purposes.

 

This is a great way to sell real estate and benefit your community. If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of benefit auctions, get in touch!
