IRVINE, CA-Auction.com has facilitated the closing of eight commercial assets in seven states during a time period of slightly less than three weeks. The firm closed sales totaling more than $82.7 million in purchase price between November 20 and December 9.

“This is another sign of steady growth in our sales volume at a time when the market is exhibiting strong signs of recovery,” says Eric Paulsen, EVP, general manager, commercial division, at Auction.com. “These results further underscore the effectiveness of the Auction.com platform for selling both distressed and non-distressed commercial assets.”

The Auction.com online platform offers completed transparency to the large pool of bidders it attracts from around the world. In turn, the competition among qualified buyers ensures that sellers’ assets are transacted at fair market value, according to the firm.
