is to be sold and where interested parties gather to make bids. An auctioneer controls the
process and calls for buyers to make bids and express their interest for the property. Once
the bidding reaches the vendor’s reserve price the auctioneer announces the property
“on the market” this means the highest bidder will then be the purchaser of the home.

offers in writing. The highest offer will secure the property.
