This particular auction is online bidding only. I have heard that the starting bid price is way lower than the actual reserve, that the auction site can make bids to get people excited, that even if you bid past the reserve the seller reserves the right to not sell you the property, etc., etc. As we were looking into a particular piece of property, it went to auction and the bidding is going on right now. Bidding ends Monday PM and we really want this property. Any insights/advice??? Wish we had found it a week sooner, it would be a done deal!!!
