There are two ways to bid.
The first way to bid is to participate in the Live auction along with the other people bidding online and on site. When you log onto auctionnetwork.com, you will see a video player on the left side of the screen. A host will be guiding viewers through the bidding process, previewing properties up for bid and directing viewers to auctions. On the right side of the page, viewers will see a section called "Properties List." That is a list of every property up for bid during that day's auctions. When an auction session is live, an orange "Live Now" button will appear next to that property within the "Properties List." Clicking on that orange button will redirect you to the live auction.
Once you are in a live auction session, you will be able to keep up with the auction via audio from the auctioneer and by following the bid increments in the bidding application. This is located in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and will keep you updated on the current bid, the asking price and who the high bidder is. This is also where you will place your own bid. If the high bidder is an online viewer, the bidder's username will appear in the bidding application.
The second way to bid is to place an "Absentee" bid on a property and the auctioneer will bid on your behalf during the live auction. You will need to be logged in and registered for the auction of your choice. Once you've located the property of interest, select the "Place Bid" button and enter in the maximum amount you would like to bid.
Make sure to place your maximum bid to avoid being outbid. Our system automatically increases your bid increment until your maximum amount is reached or you become the high bidder for a lower amount
