Kennedy Wilson Conducts a Highly Successful Auction in Castro Valley, California

What a Difference a Day Makes

Beverly Hills, Calif. (October 25, 2009). Kennedy Wilson Auction Group, a division of the national real estate services and investment firm Kennedy Wilson conducted a highly successful auction on October 25, 2009 of new luxury condominiums at Forest Circle, in Castro Valley, California. This highly anticipated one day auction was a complete sell out of all the remaining homes.

“I am thrilled about the results of this auction, said Rhett Winchell, president of the Auction Group. “This one day sale says a lot about our Company’s success. We took a project that had very little activity and turned it around in one day”, continued Winchell.

Over 400 enthusiastic bidders filled the large ballroom at The Freemont Marriott anxious to bid on one of the two- or three-bedroom condos ranging in size from 1,250 to 1,610 +/- square feet of living space with bright, open designs, spacious balconies, and great rooms providing a welcoming home. The bidding started as low as $185,000 on these new condos which were previously priced up to $522,500 and in less than two-hours, there were 31 homes sold totaling more than $11.5 million.

“Things have been slowing for three years. Once again, our pro-active marketing and sales approach is a proven way of selling real estate in today’s market and changing economic conditions. This auction benefitted both the buyers and the seller. It is a win-win situation,” said Winchell
