Model Home Furniture Auctions This Weekend

There will be two furniture auctions this weekend on Saturday and Sunday at Beazer Homes' Big Creek Township subdivision in Cumming. This is a great opportunity to buy furniture at a discount. Once you go to the auction, you won't want to pay retail again. My friends are hooked and I'm thinking about a 12 step program for at least one of them... (you know who you are)

Be prepared to spend the entire day on Saturday as the contents of three model homes will be auctioned.

Even if you aren't looking for furniture, you can find wall art, mirrors, lamps, vases, and all kinds of decorative items. Check out my previous posts on the auction to see what kind of deals are available.

Here are the details:
Saturday, March 8, 2008
Glen at Big Creek Township
6040, 6050, and 5410 Beaver Ridge Drive
Cumming, GA 30040

Preview Furniture at 8AM
Auction Begins at 10AM

Sunday, March 9, 2008
Glen at Big Creek Township
5415 Falls Landing Drive
Cumming, GA 30040

Preview Furniture at 11AM
Auction Begins at 1PM

Here are a few things you should know about the auction:
  1. Everything is sold as is. There are no refunds on items purchased.
  2. There is a 15% buyer's premium on items purchased so if you buy something for $100, it will actually cost you $115 plus tax.
  3. Payment can be made with cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard.
  4. You must take your purchases with you the same day. There are people at the auction for a couple of hours after it ends so you will have time to rent a truck if necessary. Your best bet for a last minute rental is Lowe's or Home Depot.
  5. There are people on hand that can help you load heavy furniture into your vehicle. They work for tips so bring cash.
  6. It takes about two hours to auction the contents of one model home so you should plan on spending 7-8 hours on Saturday if you want to stay until the end. That's an hour to preview, two hours per model home, and another hour to pay for your items and load them into your vehicle.

The furniture pictured above will be sold during the auction this Saturday.

See you there!
