A property Auction Bidding Service Melbourne is a bidding process, where buyers interested in buying a particular asset (like a home) meet at a set time and place, then shout out their price they are willing to pay for the property. The bids are facilitated by a licenced Auctioneer. People are able to put in bids for a variety of different assets, including property, livestock, luxury goods, vehicles, government contracts and even financial instruments.
The seller sets a minimum reserve price, below which the property will not be sold. If the bidding does not reach the reserve price, then a negotiation between the highest bidder and the vendor will take place. If negotiations are successful a contract is signed at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. Most buyers will be required to pay a deposit on the day of the auction and sign the contract within 24 hours.
