Live Auction Bidding:

Most people enjoy this method of bidding. While in the auction room the auctioneer will ask for a particular bid amount and you will raise your paddle indicating you would like to bid.

What is a buyer’s premium?

The buyers premium is an auctioneer’s fee added to the buyer’s winning bid. This makes up your total bid price. If you have additional questions about a buyer’s premium please feel free to ask one of our staff members at registration.

When someone else places a bid, we will place a slightly higher bid on your behalf. The amount the bid increases is a bid increment.


The auctioneer will communicate with you and explain “We have 1 million dollars bid. Will you bid 1.1 million?” That is your opportunity to either raise your paddle communicating you would like to bid that amount or you can say you would like to bid a different amount like “1 million 50 thousand” and offer that amount to the auctioneer and he may or may not accept it.
