The Cost of Selling Land & Equipment with DreamDirt

All of our fees are always negotiable   In fact, we guarantee the LOWEST fee for any competing and comparable service.  Our fee de-escalation policy allows our agents to beat any competing commission offer within our minimum commissions.  

When it comes to selling your land, getting the most value is of utmost importance; the cost of enlisting help from a professional auction company shouldn’t significantly lower your net income from the sale. This is why DreamDirt is committed to a commission structure that places value for our sellers at the top. After all, your land is your land, and partnering with an auctioneer should signify a fair trade of your land’s value for the value of our service. DreamDirt accommodates clients fairly with fees that reflect the value of not only your land, but your auctioneer’s experience, insurance, credibility, and marketing capabilities as well.
