BC firm sayshome auctions provide better transparency
A British Columbia real estate firm is hoping to persuade the marketthat home auctions offer better transparency.

Harcourts Canada will hold its first auction on March 2 and wants to dispel theimage of distressed sales and foreclosures by putting transparency at the heartof its operations.

"It’s got to be really crystal clear and there’s got to be a lot ofsupport and information,” CEO Harden Duncan told the CBC.

Although auctions are not seen frequently in Canada, they are a key part of thereal estate market in Australia and New Zealand

NACHI is great Mark’s day off and he gave me an answer .

My initialthought is that you would rather do the inspection for the company hosting theauction.
That would be your client.
You’d have a contract withthem.
You’d want to include something in your contract with them thatrequires them to provide some kind of disclaimer to potential bidders so thesuccessful bidder can’t come after you.
Let me know if you want todiscuss more.[FONT=Times New Roman]
