Ancient Selling Method Turns to New Technology to Improve Process

MEMPHIS, TENN. (PRWEB) May 27, 2015

Morris Auction Group is turning to new technology, a smartphone app, to improve one of the oldest recorded selling processes, auction, as they prepare for a large 73-property auction sale on June 11. The Morris Auction Group smartphone app may be downloaded for free by searching for Morris Auction Group in a smartphone app store.

The first recorded instance of an auction in history was in 500 B.C. with the auction method becoming more commonplace with the Roman Empire using auctions to liquidate property and goods referred to as the Atrium Auctionarium. This method was also used by Roman soldiers to share out the spoils of war, and would have catered well to their feelings of triumph in victory.

Typically, a traditional personal property or real estate auction is held where the property is so potential buyers must travel to a specific location. The Morris Auction Group smartphone app gives the auctioneer the ability to deliver the auction directly to potential buyers wherever they may be physically so bidders do not have to travel to a specific location.

“We are one of only a handful of auction companies in the nation utilizing this smartphone app which allows us to deliver the auction to directly potential buyers,” said Jeff Morris, President of Morris Auction and Realty Group. “In today’s fast-paced and hectic world we know our users are going to find it very convenient, especially when we are selling multiple real estate properties located all over town such as our big 73 property auction on June 11.”

Once downloaded to their smartphone the Morris Auction Group app user can browse all of the upcoming auction information, register to be a bidder in an auction, and actually bid on auctions from their phone, if they wish.

Morris Auction Group will be selling up to 73 real estate properties from the Morris Auction Group offices at 2687 Mount Moriah Terrace starting at noon on Thursday, June 11. Detailed information on the real estate properties can be found on the Morris Auction Group smartphone app or online at
