Specializing in real estate auctions, Hansen & Young will bring your property to the market place contrary to selling real estate conventionally and waiting for the market to come to you.

Hansen & Young will give you a marketing plan that fits your budget and offer expertise as to where your property should be advertised. Being members of the Wisconsin & Minnesota Realtors Associations, we have a set standard and code of ethics of the highest degree of what is expected of realtors & auctioneers.Auctions bring optimistic buyers who are ready to bid, in contrast to traditional sales. Traditionally, buyers have been trained to negotiate down on price; and to justify their lower offer, they tend to “pick apart” the property. At auction however, buyers do not negotiate downward on price. Instead they work value upward through the bidding process, thus eliminating the tendency to pick apart the property. When the property is sold “AS IS,” buyers begin to look at how they can make a property work for them.
