Decided to participate in the Olive 8 Auction? What’s Next?

You’ve checked out our Olive 8 website. You’ve reviewed the amenities of both the condominium and its link with the Hyatt at Olive 8. You’ve read all about Olive 8’s Silver LEED certification and their dedication to green living.  You’ve even looked over the floorplans for the 34 units up for sale AND, you’ve decided to take the plunge and put in a bid on Sunday, September 19th.

What’s next?

A  Realtor® with proven auction experience is the best source to guide you through the bidding and closing process. That’s what you’ll get when you sign up with us. We at the Stroupe Group have specialized in the downtown Seattle condominium market since 1994, and have represented bidders on a number of successfully closed auction transactions.

We don’t start our work when the auction doors open, either.

We’ll do a thorough discussion with you upfront as to what you want and don’t want in a home. We’ll then review the Olive 8 units up for auction, and place values on those specific to your wants and needs. We’ll then take a physical inspection tour with you on the unit(s) you’re interested in to make sure the investment you’re about to make is one you are thoroughly happy with.

Now, suppose we go back to the bidding list and you like Numbers 9 and 14. You may prefer Number 9 but 14 may come up first… we will help you outline a “pecking order” and advise you on a bidding strategy come auction time.

We’ll help you wade through financial aspects of an auction. As you review the Terms and Conditions, you’ll discover it can seem a little daunting.  Plus, you’ve just picked up the part about the unpublished reserve selling price.  How can you get the Olive 8 unit you want at the right cost for you?  Moreover, how do you get in the winning bid and close the deal?

From peruse through purchase, we will start you on the auction process and be with you at every step. We’ll answer all your questions, put you at ease with the auction process and most importantly, help you get what you want at one of the premier condominium properties in Seattle.

The auction is just around the corner.  Fill out the Contact Us tab at www.olive8seattle.com and we’ll be in touch with you right away.

Your dream home at Olive 8 is waiting. Let us help you make that dream come true.
