Creating the competition of common interest

As experts in the auction space, the New York Auction Center is the best and only place to sell your residential, commercial, retail, industrial and development properties.

Through a combination of our expert, honest guidance and our bespoke marketing and sales packages, to our state-of-the-art auction facilities, we are literally a one-stop-shop that will make your auction experience a huge success and even a lot of fun.


Auction advantages for sellers

Auctions differ from private sales as there is no "cooling-off period":

Sellers set all the terms of the auction

Cash-unconditional sale

Settlement in 30, 45 or 60 days

Remove barriers and issues in post-sale negotiations

If you are bidding at an auction, you must be ready to exchange contracts and complete the sale. Otherwise, you will lose your deposit and may be liable for any damages suffered by the vendor.


Live Online, Across the Globe

We have partnered with the best industry provider of online, live auction software to ensure your properties get the maximum exposure and that potential buyer's can bid from anywhere around the globe.

Accelerated Marketing

There is not a one-size-fits-all when it comes to marketing and where a property should be marketed. It is important to tailor a marketing package that suits you and your budget and gets in front of your target buyer. 

Like any product launch, the correct marketing spend is going to get your property the most exposure, hence the most potential buyers.

  • Your commitment to auction your property sends a message to the market that you are a genuine seller prepared to invest in your sale to get the maximum return. 

  • We believe you never get a second chance to make a first impression. The first 21 days from when your property becomes available are the most crucial.

  • Exposure is key and the more people that know about your property can really drive up the price. One additional buyer could add $100,000 or much more to your sale price.

  • Do you want us to present you with a marketing plan to win your business, or one that will get you the best price in the shortest possible time? Just reach out and we'll get back to you within 24 hours. 


Sell in as quickly as one day or maximum of six weeks.

Getting a deal done quickly and on your terms is the perfect result.


We encourage buyers to make offers from day One that we can present to you. We gather buyer feedback every day so you can make the most informed decision.


Sell Day 1, Auction Day or set a price after auction day if you feel market expectations are not met.
