15 UNIT APARTMENT BUILDING 15 Unit Apartment Building with Ground Level Retail known as "Peabody Apartments" Located in Charles Village near the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus

Located in Baltimore City, Maryland a few blocks from Johns Hopkins University. The property was owned by an investor for over 25 years and he turned to Alex Cooper in order to divest of his multi-family assets so he could reposition his portfolio to be focused on retail shopping centers. The auction attracted over 100 inquiries and successfully sold. The seller then purchased a neighborhood shopping center from one of our auctions with a mixture of financing and 1031 exchange funds.

Sell at Auction Why You Should Sell Your Property at Auction

Using the Alex Cooper auction platform to sell a property can be very advantageous for the property owner. Traditional brokerage purchase agreements for real estate are written with preference given to the buyer, not the seller.

The Auction Purchase and Sale Agreement

Our auction Purchase and Sale Agreement (PSA) gives the seller distinct advantages, such as:

  • The Buyer pays the commission via a Buyer’s premium.
  • The Buyer pays transfer taxes.
  • The property sells as it is, where it is.
  • Contingent-free contracts—there are no property inspection, appraisal, or financing contingencies.
  • Buyer pays a non-refundable earnest money deposit as high as 10% of the purchase price.
  • Sale terms for vacant properties require expenses, such as real estate taxes, to be adjusted to the sale date, rather than the settlement date.

Buy & Sell How Does the Auction Process Work?

The Alex Cooper bidding platform gives your property extensive exposure, ensuring a broad audience of potential buyers. This reach is further expanded by syndication across platforms like Zillow, Realtor.com, and Redfin for residential properties, and CREXI for commercial properties, maximizing visibility. Our auction process offers the seller a minimum reserve price, a practice where Alex Cooper Auctioneers has a notable record of meeting or exceeding expectations. This approach protects the seller’s bottom line while ensuring a transparent and fair process where market forces drive the property’s final selling price.
