The birth of modern auctioneering came with the rise of the Roman Empire where the practice and trade of selling at auction first became regulated. Most people do not realize that there is a body of auction laws and traditions going back over 2,000 years to the Roman Empire.
The word auction is derived from the Latin words Acto for increase and Auctonarium; which for Romans was the place that auctions may be conducted by an accredited certified or licensed auctioneer called The Magister Auctionarium.
True auctions are where assets of all types are offered for sale to the public and the price is determined through open and competitive 'Acto' bidding. The price increases until there are no more bids or increases. The assets are all sold as-is where-is with all faults and no warrantee other than clear title upon cash payment in full.
The Auctionarium is California’s only full service Roman rules auction company that is dedicated to take the pain out of selling real estate and personal property such as art, furniture, collectibles, sculpture, coins and jewelry using the auction method to determine the "present cash market value" that the market of bidders are willing to pay.
The Roman rules of The Auctionarium mean that everything must be sold to the highest bidder, with no minimum bids and no reserve prices. If you are looking for a real auction where everything sells regardless of price, The Auctionarium is the place for you.
The Auctionarium offers a combination of live and Internet auctions to increase market exposure for items while allowing people to bid from their computer, phone or in person.
Sellers are pleased knowing they have received "the present cash market value" through open and competitive bidding. The process is transparent with all auctions recorded.
Buyers who 'win' property through our transparent open bidding process are pleased knowing they only paid one bid more than someone else was willing to pay for the property. Real estate and personal property are sold with free & clear title. That means when you win at The Auctionarium, once it's paid for you are the new legal owner of record.
Today's changing real estate market has created a demand for transparency in the sales and pricing process. Auctions are no longer considered a means of last resort because they will deliver a buyer on a specific date. If you want to sell real estate at auction, then you must agree to accept the high bid price or choose another venue.
DIGIBIP'S are what we call our Digital Bidder Information Package used to sell Real Estate. 2000 years of auction law & traditions proclaim that everything is sold as-is but when one is spending hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars on homes & land they want to know what as-is really means. DIGIBIP'S usually contain a certified home inspection of real property being auctioned, customary seller disclosures, community information, pictures and more.
