Licensed and Professional Land Auctioneers

Not every auctioneer is the same. To ensure you have the best experience, it is crucial to understand that while many auctioneers don a professional title, that does not necessarily mean that they are trained and true professionals.

All DreamDirt auctioneers are professionally trained and certified, and it shows in our work and the diligent preparation for each auction.

Customizable Land Auctions with DreamDirt

Live Auctions

At a live auction, an auctioneer will typically ‘cry’ and procure bids from the crowd. The item up for auction will sell to the highest bidder. Not only are live auctions the world’s most traditional way to sell items, but they are also incredibly effective when it comes to farmland auctions. The auction method works best for rare and valuable items – and what is more rare and more valuable than a piece of high-quality Midwestern farmland? When comparing auction results to public listings and private land sales, auctions consistently bring land its true market value.

Live Auctions with Online Bidding

Every seller partnering with DreamDirt has the option of supplementing an in-person live auction with online bidding capabilities through our industry-leading and first-of-its-kind platform. This ‘combination’ style auction expands the pool of bidders and creates more competition. A bidder can easily participate whether they live next door, or two states away.

Timed Online Land Auctions

Able to be described as an ‘eBay for farmland’, timed online land auctions were pioneered by DreamDirt across the Midwest and are a huge advancement in auctions. Today, nearly all of our auctions are structured this way! These auctions utilize ascending bidding against a descending clock. No audio or video is broadcast. Sellers enjoy lower commissions, as our team is not having to travel, rent space, host bidders, and more. Our online auctions have consistently proven to bring equal or greater results than our live auction options. Bidders are not deterred from bidding due to the social pressures that exist at live auctions, yet the speed and urgency is retained through our proprietary platform. Bidders always tell us they found it difficult to stop hitting that bright green BID button!

Webcast Auctions

Webcast auctions allow auctioneers and bidders to remotely cry the sale and bid on auctions through a webcasting platform. Conducted similarly to a Live Auction with Online Bidding, live bidders can join the auctioneer in-person, but the online bidders can also see and hear the auctioneer through a video webcast. Bids are able to be taken from both live and online parties.
