Miami-based luxury real estate auction house Platinum Luxury Auctions is ringing in the New Year with nearly $100 million in luxury properties scheduled to hit the auction block. The offering consists of five properties, each of which will be sold individually via five luxury auction® dates staggered throughout January and February in 2022. The properties are diverse in style and geography, spanning the continental U.S. and extending to the Caribbean. Platinum is managing each transaction in concert with the respective listing brokerage.
“The nearly ubiquitous and unprecedented rise in luxury property demand and pricing that began in Q4 2020 and has continued through 2021 inherently limited the inventory available to us for luxury auction® sale, so we’re very pleased to have such a robust start to 2022,” stated Trayor Lesnock, Platinum’s Founder and President.
“These are prime properties in prime locations, representing the type of purchase opportunities our global buying audience appreciates.”
To be sure, those buyers are likely to appreciate that four of the five properties are offered without reserve, meaning they will sell to the highest bidder regardless of the price. A summary of the properties follows, listed in chronological order of their luxury auction® date…
