St-Thomas USVI - absolute auction scheduled for April 4, 2012

CHARLOTTE, NC (RPRN) 02/24/12 — Boomers heading Southeast and Southwest to warmer and drier climate

Grand Estate Auction Company, the leading luxury real estate auction company in North America and the Caribbean, recently completed an internal survey and evaluation of real estate trends. The analysis of the research reveals that today’s baby boomers are following two new financial trends. The company has identified that a segment of the population who has recently retired is reducing their real estate holdings to become citizens of the world and now travel for extensive period of times, while another is selling their primary residences in the Midwest and the Tri-state areas to purchase a new home in the Southeast and Southwest.

Reflecting the current trends in the marketplace among high net worth individuals, Grand Estates Auction Company announced today it will be offering three exclusive properties to be auctioned absolute, all owned by an individual seller. “Our clients are former insurance executives who have opted to reduce their real estate holdings in a timely manner in order to travel the world.” stated Val DeVine, CEO and founder of Grand Estates Auction company.

Commenting on the new “citizens of the world” trend and the choice of sellers to maintain one home base instead of several residences, Leslie Paul Farkas, Business Development Manager of Grand Estates Auction explains: “We’re seeing a larger portion of our clientele approach us wanting to make a lifestyle change, as buyers they’re choosing our properties and our auction process because it’s a time effective and transparent method of buying a luxury property in the markets they’re looking at.”  Farkas further adds: “Our sellers know that their properties will attract worldwide interest from qualified buyers who can close with cash within 30 days. They understand that we bring the market to them via our auction platform and obtain true market value for their real estate holdings.”  

Grand Estates will be holding its next three absolute auctions with no reserve or minimum price on:

Saturday, March 24 in Miami Florida;

Wednesday, March 28 in Beaver Creek, Colorado;

Wednesday, April 4th in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.

 “Our bidders like the fact that their bids will be placed by them in an open forum and they will be able to gauge the market’s perception of true value instantaneously at our auctions,” states Farkas. “Moreover, they like that the properties are all available for closing within 30 days, and that  no negotiation with the seller and their representatives is needed. High bid will be the sale price, period!”

Grand Estates’ upcoming absolute auctions:  Sun, Ski and Surf

Two of the properties up for auction  were designed by acclaimed international designer Carola
