Personal Property

Direct Link to Personal Property Auction

August 23 auction is CLOSED.

In January of 2016 I became a real estate agent for United Country-Heart of America Real Estate & Auction which is located in Oskaloosa, Kansas.

Many of you know I have been wanted to do On-line Only Auctions for the past couple of years. While recovering from surgery on my left leg I was presented with the opportunity to sell three houses. The only catch was two of three houses were full of personal property; while the third house only had a few items. When I sold my auction facility at Four Corners in March, I no longer had a place to take or conduct auctions with the such a large volume of stuff like is in these three houses. So my problem was I needed to sell the contents of these houses before I could sell the real estate.

After consulting with Allen & Becky Wise, my broker and owners of United Country-Heart of America, I found out that they had been doing some On-line Only Auctions and after considerable discussion with Allen & Becky and Andy Conser, my good friend and fellow auctioneer, I decided that the best way to sell the personal property from these three houses was by an Internet Only Auction.

Since United Country-Heart of America Real Estate & Auction already had the auction software necessary to conduct an On-line Internet Only Auction, I decide to ask them to assist me in conducting the On-line Only Auction of the personal property that is in these three houses.

All the personal property in this auction is located within the Topeka city limits and will be sold either by individual item, by the group or lot, by the entire room(s), or the entire houseful. Contents of these three homes will be sold to the highest bidder by Internet Only Auction. Bidding is open now at (SEE AUCTIONEER’S NOTE BELOW FOR A MORE DIRECT LINK). Auction will begin to close at 6:00pm CDT on August 23rd.

Some of the items included are household & kitchen appliances; miscellaneous household items; 4 vehicles; 3 motorcycle frames (one is a partially assemble Harley-Davidson – we have been able to match two additional engine VIN to titles that we have); a large number of motorcycle parts; a small block 350 with a Holley carburetor & Mallory ignition; large assortment of shop tools including metal lathe, parts washer, 20-ton press, drill press, engine stand & hoist, 2-ton aluminum racing jack, 60-gal Kobalt upright air compressor, sand blasting kit; Eastwood soda media maintenance blaster; acetylene torch, tanks, and cart; (2) 20-gall horizontal air compressor; Woodward Fab Planishing Hammer; English Wheel; Flow Bench 110 with accessories; an outstanding assortment of name brand shop tools including those by Starrett, Matco, Snap-On, and Craftsman.
