No accepted bids at auction
The recent Marco Island real estate auction was a bust as no properties were sold at the event.
In an apparent indication of a softening real estate market spawned by Hurricane Wilma, an auction of 14 residential properties valued at $450,000 to $2.3 million has yielded no successful bids.
Premier Plus Realty Co. owners Frank Schultz and Erik Hansen blamed the lack of sales on post-Wilma jitters, a scarcity of serious bidders and lowball bids at a scheduled four-hour auction conducted Nov. 12 at the Marco Island Yacht Club.
