The Osborn Farm, Ellijay, Gilmer County, GA

One of Auctions United, Inc. premier estate / family settlement sales was the Osborn property in Gilmer County, Georgia. The Osborn family owned this property for generations and the ownership had descended into the third generation. It was owned by grandchildren of the original owners. They determined that the fairest and most efficient way to market the property was to have an auction. The auction method allowed them to subdivide the property into small tracts and make it more appealing to the market. It also allowed the heirs to bid on portions of the family property without having to purchase it all. Auctions United, Inc advanced all promotional money including a large survey expense which allowed the property to be divided into small tracts. The auction was considered a huge success.
