The Ohio Department of Agriculture which licenses auctioneers, offers the following Consumer Awareness tips: Before hiring and contracting with an auctioneer, there are several factors to consider. All auctioneers are required to enter into a contract with the owner or consignee of the property to be sold. Consumers should review the details of the contract: Does it state the type of auction that I am having? Does it cover the auctioneer fees? Does it cover the advertising and labor? Consumers should fully understand the services for which they will be paying. They should also consider: Auctioneer's expertise: Some auctioneers specialize in certain types of auctions. Ask the auctioneer if they know the market; the value of the property and how to attract the buyers most interested in the property. Ask for their marketing plan. Experience: Auctioneers can conduct anywhere from a few dozen or over 100 auctions in a year. Ask the auctioneer how much experience they have and how long they have been in the business; ask if the auctioneer has earned any special designations or honors from any professional organizations or if they are licensed appraisers. References: Ask for references from former clients. Licensing: Call the Ohio Department of Agriculture to see if the auctioneer is licensed and in good standing. Reputation: Talk to former clients and people who attend auctions frequently. Find out what they know about the auctioneer. Observation: Attend an auction conducted by the auctioneer. See how the auction is advertised and how the auction is run.
