SVN Motleys Coordinates $830K Accelerated Sale of Scenic Virginia Property


Strong marketing efforts lead to successful accelerated sale of 288 acres

Gordonsville, Virginia (March 30, 2016)—SVN Motleys—a founding member of SVN Auction Services, a national provider of date-specific sales and special asset solutions—successfully coordinated a foreclosure sale of the scenic property near Gordonsville, Va., known as “Sylvania.” The 288-acre property sold during a March 9 auction for $830,500.

About a 30-minute drive from Charlottesville, Va., Sylvania is a historically significant property that had been on the market for seven years before SVN Motleys marketed and sold it in a mere four weeks.  

“We’re very pleased with how quickly and successfully our people were able to coordinate this sale,” said SVN Motleys Senior Advisor Tim Dudley, CAI, AARE. “Thanks to some proactive, strategic marketing campaigns, we were able to generate a lot of interest in the Sylvania property – despite the length of time it had been on the market.”

There were 25 registered bidders vying for the Virginia property, which includes farmland, fenced-in livestock areas, barns, a main residence and a second house. Because of the property’s significance as a historic landmark, a conservation easement allows access to Historic Green Springs, Inc. to help with preservation. 
Dudley and Chip Jones, also an SVN Motleys Senior Advisor, coordinated the accelerated sale. 

“This property has some beautiful, scenic views,” Dudley said. “It will be an amazing place to live.”

Dudley is a Virginia State Champion Auctioneer who recently earned his third consecutive SVN Partners Circle award by ranking among the Top 30 SVN performers internationally. He is a past president and director of the Virginia Auctioneers Association, and was inducted into its Hall of Fame.

Jones is a licensed auctioneer and realtor in Virginia and North Carolina. He sells all types of commercial and residential real estate, heavy machinery, equipment, and automobiles.
