Auction.com to Host Online Charity Auction
Auction.com is a well known online platform which has gained popularity in recent times. It has been considered as USA’s leading online real estate marketplace. Most recently, the online site is lending its innovative online platform to Project Playhouse, a charity auction benefitting HomeAid Orange County’s efforts to build doorways for Orange County’s homeless. According to the sources, HomeAid OC will auction four luxury playhouses, which are designed and built by local builders and volunteers, during its annual Project Playhouse Doorways for Hope Gala on Oct. 5 at the Balboa Bay Club. The entire outcome will help the organization continue its work in providing shelter for Orange County’s homeless community.
Not only this, the Auction.com will simultaneously host online bidding – complete with photos and descriptions of each playhouse – at www.auction.com/luxury/projectplayhouse. Gina Scott, who is the director of development for HomeAid OC, has commented that, “Auction.com’s success selling luxury homes and reaching bidders around the world helps us overcome getting bidders to the live auction. Not only will this bring more excitement and a larger pool of bidders to the event, it further raises awareness of the issue of homelessness, particularly in Orange County.” As the sources revealed, the online bidding will follow a similar format to typical Auction.com luxury home auctions. Bidders, many of whom are the same luxury buyers already familiar with the Auction.com process, will compete in a completely transparent process. They will bid against other online participants, as well as those attending the live event at the Balboa Bay Club. Jennifer Leuer, who is the senior vice president of the Auction.com Luxury Homes division, has proclaimed that, “The Auction.com process and platform have sold many multi-million-dollar homes in 2012. We have seen tremendous interest in our online real estate marketplace from luxury buyers. We’re thrilled that our platform can support the great work of such an important organization and a truly delightful event.”
