Timed Online Auctions View Upcoming Auctions
Since its launch in 2009, the Timed Online Auction Division of Steffes Group, Inc., has vastly grown in popularity. Through timed online auctions, Steffes Group, Inc. has been selling farm and construction equipment, specialty assets of all kinds, and real estate via its intuitive online platform. Online auctions operate both independently and in unison with Steffes Live Auctions. We also offer a regularly scheduled timed online event from the 1st Wednesday to the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Steffes also routinely conducts independent Timed Online auctions. These auctions range in size from large multi-location dealership group inventory reductions and liquidations to 10 piece sales. This method of doing business creates numerous benefits with few downsides for both sellers and buyers.

Why Online Auctions?


The Death of Distance

First and foremost, online bidding allows anyone in the world, who is willing and able, to attend our auctions any time of the day or night. This effectively eliminates hurdles associated with bidding at auction.


Auctions Can Be Conducted From Nearly Anywhere

Online auctions can take place at your site or at one of our facilities. Bidders are encouraged to personally inspect or have an inspection done by a third party prior to the auction. With online auctions, all bidding takes place on the internet. Buyers pay for their purchases through a quick phone call to the location hosting the auction. Buyers then take possession of their items at the auction site or one of our facilities, or have it delivered to them via a transport company or UPS. 


We Never Give a Buyer an Excuse Not to Bid

Online auctions allow bidding to take place anytime, anywhere, and anyplace. Bidders can view the auction items online 24/7 and in person on auction specified inspection days. Bidders are able to contact the owner of any item or the Steffes representative in charge of the auction with any questions. See item description for details.

Real Estate Auctions View Upcoming Auctions

Since 1963, Steffes Group, Inc. has been conducting farmland, pastureland, timberland, and farmstead auctions. We have also sold a vast array of commercial real estate, recreational land, and a variety of unique acreage and property. Decades have passed and we have since carried out a large number of real estate auctions for clients who have been happy with our top dollar results and genuine care for individual challenges and circumstances. We know and realize that selling your land is a big deal. For farmers, this means selling your livelihood or land held for multiple generations. For investors and independent owners alike, this means liquidating a portion of your holdings. Accordingly, we believe the liquidation process should involve a number of seasoned professionals who are truly focused on the client until we arrive at the highest "SOLD" figure possible.

We assess each client and project on an individual basis, as every client and parcel of land is different. We feel there is no cookie cutter way to approach real estate auctions. Our advertising efforts are interactive and ever evolving. Our market exposure is both broad and focused to attract top paying buyers and our results are top notch, proven to be successful. Representatives at all of our locations are equipped with the experience, tools, and resources that are needed to ensure the highest dollar amount for our sellers. All actions are carried out with the integrity that you can expect from us in any of our dealings. If you're thinking about selling your land or are curious about the auction process and what we have to offer contact us today, we would be more than happy to help you!

Forage Auctions
Forage Auctions are conducted on a bi-monthly basis in the winter months and once a month during summer at our Litchfield, Minnesota facility. Our forage auctions provide an excellent opportunity for both sellers and buyers. At these events, you will find an array of high quality alfalfa, grass, and straw being sold to a wide audience of eager buyers bidding on forage grown all over the Midwest and Canada. Prior to being sold, all forage is tested on site by Dairyland Laboratories the morning of the auction. This ensures your top quality hay is recognized as such and that bidders bid with the utmost confidence because they truly know what they are getting. Bidders enjoy the heated indoor environment as forage is driven by our transparent overhead doors lot by lot.

With questions about buying or selling at one of these bi-monthly events, please call our Litchfield, MN office at 320-693-9371.
