Note Sales
In difficult economic environments, Note Sales have become a very important and efficient way to convert delinquent non accrual accounts to cash.

Accelerated Sale Formats

Internet Only
With the web offering bidders to participate around the world, Motleys is using the Internet to bring buyers and sellers together in the busy world. Bidders can place bids 24/7 from the comfort of their home or business.

Live Onsite
Traditional Onsite Sales are still extremely effective at bringing all the bidders together to the subject property and conducting the auction onsite. Properties are evaluated for feasibility of venue and sales locations.

Multi-Parcel Land
When considering the sale of large tracts of land, Motleys considers all potential options to maximize the results. Motleys works to reallocate boundaries to create more competitive bidding tracts. Bidders have the option to purchase small tracts or to acquire the entirety. For example, a 1550 Acre Property was redrawn to create 15 smaller more competitive tracts. At the auction we had three purchasers for a variety of tracts.

Sales with multiple properties and multiple owners are regularly conducted and is a great way to sell your property at a well advertised event. Marketing campaigns will be designed to sell your property at the most cost effective means available. Contact Motleys to add your properties to one of our upcoming sales.

“Ballroom” Style
“Ballroom” style accelerated sales are conducted where Motleys will sell multiple properties for one or more clients, at one location, such as a ballroom or gallery. Properties are displayed on large high definition screens and the bidders are seated in a gallery format. Motleys has conducted auctions with over 100 properties at one sales event.

Sealed Bid
This process is used for properties that may have limited interest. The same aggressive marketing program is implemented, cooperating brokers are welcome and property inspections are performed by buyers. Bids are submitted to Motleys in a sealed and confidential format.


Financial Institutions are quickly discovering the advantages of Motleys aggressive marketing campaign and the positive results of properties being sold to third party bidders and not to the note holder.

Real Estate Appraisal Services

An appraisal is an opinion and an estimate of value. An appraiser can estimate different types of value, however the typical property owner is often concerned with the market value of their property. Our Real Estate Division uses industry standard techniques to value your property:

Three Approaches

An appraiser typically uses one or more of the three recognized approaches in a real property appraisal. The three approaches to value are:

  • Sales Comparison Approach – The sales comparison approach is most relevant when there are a number of valid, recent sales that are similar to the subject property, and located within the subject’s market segment.
  • Depreciated Cost Approach – The depreciated cost approach is most relevant when the building is new or nearly new and has not accrued an unreasonable amount of depreciation. The cost to reproduce or replace the building is estimated in this approach to value, less depreciation plus an estimate of the land value.
  • Income Capitalization Approach – The income approach is most relevant in income producing properties such as office buildings, apartments, retail space, warehouses and others. This approach converts an income stream into an estimate of value for the subject property.
