Avalon Plaza consists of three contiguous buildings as an operating neighborhood retail center on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The property is located on the main thriving commercial corridor in Salisbury with Outback Steakhouse, Chico’s and Talbots as national anchored tenants adjacent to Courtyard Marriott. Under the 363 Federal Bankruptcy Code permitted sale process the property was approved for a structured bankruptcy auction to be conducted with all liens attaching to the proceeds of sale.



The SVN Auction Team received appointment as marketing agent/auctioneer for the trustee and the subject bankruptcy estate. The SVN office in Salisbury, MD served as the court appointed property manager and local headquarter broker for the initiative and engagement. The court approved auction bid terms and procedures provided for all interested parties to submit their $200,000 bid deposit and initial written offer/bid with the court appointed trustee in order to be qualified to bid for the property at the live auction. The live auction was held in Chambers at the Bankruptcy Court with a confirmation hearing immediately before the Judge at the conclusion of the bidding for the property. An opening bid of $4,200,000 was received as the highest initial written offer/bid from one of the nine qualified bidder(s). The Lender’s Appraisal received was $4,600,000.



The auction attracted serious interest from major equity funds and national retail operators/owners in 19 US States with 100 plus prospective purchasers entering the buyer momentum process and multiple groups inspecting the property. The brokerage community participated with 14 different broker registrations representing potential bidders. The live auction was conducted with four qualified bidders present in Court Chambers and five qualified bidders attending via SVN’s online bidding platform. The auction produced competitive bidding with a final $5,925,000 cash bid and was approved.
