Selling land via public auction is a staple in the industry especially for high quality, tillable tracts or properties that are extremely desirable with multiple buyers interested in the property. As in most industries, the cyclical nature of the land industry will at times lend itself to being better suited for traditional listing services on more marginal tracts; however, parcels in a competitive area can still be great candidates for a public auction. A core advantage of choosing Peoples Company is our ability to utilize the most appropriate sale method.
