Placing a Bid
Our real-time auctions use a bidding countdown clock. Look out for the clock at the top of the Offr panel. It will let you know when the Auction is going to start. Once the Auction opens the clock will display how much time is left until the Auction closes. If no one bids after the clock expires, the final bid is awarded the property.
If a bid is placed within the last 60 seconds the clock will reset allowing a further 60 seconds of bidding. This is known as an Extension Period and will continue to happen until a full 60 seconds has passed. All bids are recorded and visible within the bidding panel on your screen. Bidder names are not displayed to protect your privacy.
Each property has a reserve price which means that the property cannot be sold for less than this. A guide price will be set by the agent. This is the opening bid amount for that property. Default Bidding amounts are set by the Agent. For example €500, €1000, €2000 etc.
Once the bidding has closed we will contact you immediately to let you know you that you have been successful. Contracts will be executed and shared with all parties via DocuSign.
You will need to pay a 10% deposit within 2 working days. Your bidding deposit will be included as part of this 10%.
