Auction.com Haul for January Hits $353M
IRVINE, CA—Auction.com hit another milestone high through its online real estate sales platform. The firm racked up $353 million in aggregate sales for the month of January, closing 62 commercial assets.
Eric Paulsen, EVP and general manager of Auction.com’s commercial division, says “At a time when we’re seeing more capital hit the marketplace and values creep toward 2007 levels in major metropolitan areas, we’re seeing an incredibly high volume of commercial sales through our platform. This is indicative of Auction.com’s continued strength and success in the post-recession marketplace.”

Auction.com has been making news lately for other reasons. As GlobeSt.com reported last week, the firm received a $50-million investment from Google Capital. Earlier this week, president Jake Seid told GlobeSt.com, “The investment really validates our vision for using the Internet to transact real estate. We focus on making the process more transparent for the buyer, seller and broker. For Google Capital, their mission is to invest in late-stage businesses that are fundamentally transforming large markets, and we were their bet in real estate.” In addition, the firm was recently recognized by HousingWire magazine as a leading tech innovator in the US housing economy.
