Additional Bid information

What is an Auto Bid? An auto bid is a maximum proxy bid which is held in confidence by the system. Bid4Assets will use only as much of the maximum bid as is necessary to maintain the bidder's high bid position or to meet the reserve. Please note: If two bidders place auto bids for identical amounts on the same auction, the earlier bid will be the leading bid.

Examples of Auto Bid:

  • If the auction has a minimum bid of $200 and you enter your maximum bid amount of $400, your bid will automatically be placed at $200. Your bid will automatically increase as other bidders participate, up to your $400 maximum bid amount.
  • If the auction has a Reserve Price of $20,000 (this amount is hidden from bidders) and you enter an Auto Bid of $18,000, your bid will automatically be placed at $18,000. The Reserve Price has not been met so there will be no winning bidder unless additional bids are placed.
  • If the auction has a Reserve Price of $20,000 (this amount is hidden from bidders) and you enter an Auto Bid of $21,000, your bid will automatically be placed at the Reserve Price of $20,000. If another bidder jumps in, your bid will automatically increase until you meet your $21,000 maximum bid.

What is Overtime?
Overtime is an extension of the auction close time and keeps an auction open as long as there is active bidding. It occurs automatically when a bid is placed within the last few minutes of an auction. The auction will remain open until an entire overtime increment has passed without any bidding. The overtime increment is indicated on the auction listing.

How can I Monitor My Auctions?
When bidding on multiple properties it is advisable to only bid on one auction at a time. You can find a list of properties that you have bid on in the “my bid list” tab of your profile. You will also receive confirmations of your placed bids as well as notifications of being out bid in your message center.

Can I bid on Withdrawn or Postponed Auctions?
No. Auctions must be live in order for you to able to place a bid. If a property is withdrawn or postponed by a county for any reason, it is no longer open for bidding. Please note, Bid4Assets does not have knowledge of why a property is withdrawn or postponed.

At the close of an auction, the highest bidder will be deemed the winner. After all the auctions in the county have closed, winning bidders will be notified in their message center with a congratulatory message that also alerts them to settlement requirements. The winning bidder will see each of the parcels that they won listed as a link to DeedWizard. The DeedWizard will allow you to quickly and easily provide vesting information and access settlement instructions. Any bidder that does not win a parcel or never participates in the auction after submitting a deposit will receive a refund.

Winning Bidders

  • Winning bidders will be notified in their message center after the close of the auctions. A DeedWizard link is provided for quick and easy transfer of vesting information.
  • Please review the county terms of sale for the payment deadline and make sure you have enough funds on hand to meet the deadline
  • When making a settlement payment, please reference the auction IDs for the specific parcels you won.
  • Your deed will be transferred by the county within the timeframe specified in the county’s terms of service. Generally, this can be anywhere from three weeks to three months. For questions relating to the timeline on recording the deed, please contact the county.

All Other Participants

  • Any bidder who does not win one or more parcels after submitting a deposit will be refunded automatically with no need for request.
  • Refunds checks are mailed out via first class mail within ten business days after the close of an auction. Bidders will be notified by email when checks are mailed.
  • Checks will be issued to the name and address entered by the bidder on their profile. It is critical that bidders enter their legal name and keep their address up-to- date for this reason.
