Buying a House at Auction in Kansas City


When buying a house at auction with RE/MAX Auction House in Kansas City, you bid with confidence, unlike traditional listing methods.

When using online auction to buy or sell, you have much more knowledge of information surrounding the purchase of any given property, including the price point of other bids in the auction. You’re empowered as a buyer by being aware that your bid is competitive. 



Register To Bid

Before you bid on a property, you must first register for the selected property auction. If inspection is required, it is complete prior to the auction.

After registering to bid, there is a pre-auction window. If you need time to line up financing, no problem! You have the entire auction timeline to secure financing before bidding.


Bid on a Listing You Love

Once you’re registered for the listing’s auction and the auction timeline starts, you can bid on the property. You receive the benefit of full transparency throughout the entire online auction process in exchange for a 10% buyer’s premium. Bid confidently against other bids, or easily bow out if the price goes beyond your scope.

You also have the convenience of bidding remotely, which makes buying property out of your area much easier. Buyers also save time and energy by immediate notice if your offer wins the sale once the auction ends.
