Ian Black Real Estate in cooperation with Auction World USA will launch a first of its kind commercial real estate auction in Sarasota, Fla. next month. The two powerhouse firms have set the auction for Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 1pm at the new event facility on Palm Avenue, The Francis, located at 1289 W. Palm Avenue in Sarasota.
“No one has done this type of event in Sarasota before,” said Ian Black, president of the Sarasota based commercial real estate firm. “We formed a strategic alliance with Auction World USA because of its solid, award winning reputation. This will be a tremendous buying opportunity for people who attend,” said Black.
The two highly recognized and established company heads agree that in an emerging market, auctions can serve to be a true market indicator.
“Today’s commercial buyers are very astute; they know exactly what they want and what they’re willing to pay,” said Mark S. Henderson, owner of Auction World USA. “That’s why we are so fortunate to conduct this event in cooperation with Ian Black Real Estate. Ian and his team are razor sharp. We have incredible inventory and motivated sellers- this is the real deal- a true buying opportunity,” he noted.
Both firms will carefully examine all auction inventory introduced at the event. The auction at The Francis will feature 12-17 properties and unlike many other auctions, buyers will not pay a buyer’s premium. Registration at the April 10th event is set to begin at Noon and the auction will start promptly at 1pm. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
