United Country Dominates The Land
Report’s 2013 Top Auction Houses Report

Share |

July 29, 2013 – (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Auction Services has once again earned the #1 spot on the Land Report’s special report “America's Top Auction Houses.” The article, which appears in the Summer 2013 issue, highlights the nation’s leading auction companies based on land auction sales. United Country sat atop of the list of competitors with over $500 million in auction sales for 2012.

United Country Auction Services is reporting large increases in June with sales volume up 36 percent and an average sales price increase of 34 percent versus 2012. Land showed to once again be the big winner showing an increase 13 percent year-to-date through June.

According to the company’s leadership team, these numbers are a direct result of United Country’s innovative traditional real estate sales/auction services blended marketing model.

“The conditions that existed in 2012 aligned perfectly for the auction method of marketing, those being sellers who have a sense of urgency to sell and realize gains prior to changes in the tax law and buyers looking to participate in the improving economics and opportunities to invest in land as an asset class,” said Dan Duffy, chief executive officer of United Country Real Estate. “People are realizing the auctions, for certain sellers, are the right way to go.”

“Buyers and sellers are recognizing the power of the auction process,” said Shawn Terrel, vice president of United Country Auction Services. “It is an extremely transparent transaction that is clearly defined before the event even takes place. The process creates a clean sale and lessens the negotiation process.”
