IRVINE, Calif. – Sept. 16, 2015 – Auction.com, LLC, the nation’s leading online real estate marketplace, reported closings on 70 commercial assets during the month of July. The assets had a total combined sales price of $285 million.
The sale of the high-profile Fisher & Kahn Buildings, a 776,500-square-foot historic office high-rise complex in Detroit, closed in July. Auctioned in June, Fisher & Kahn Buildings’ $12.81 million sale is a prime example of the office sector’s recent recovery.
