Auction.com Review

Changing the way property auctions are done Auction.com brings online bidding to the sale of residential bank-owned and foreclosure properties. Who wouldn’t want to buy some property for a better deal, especially with how market values of home just keeps going up.

Auction.com is focused taking the in person real estate auction online, with tons of technology and data science behind the scenes. Once you register for a free account you can start to search their listings and you can save listings you like and auction.com will show you similar properties in your feed. 

They have a lot of resources to make sure your prepared to start bidding with how to guides and videos. Customer support is available throughout the process via phone or live chat. We find Auction.com to be a great auction site but if you are not up to date on purchasing real estate, members on Reddit say “The general consensus is that it’s not for the novice or rookie investor”.

The other side to this is that if you do your due diligence you can purchase property for a lot less than market price!
