Contract

Your bid is a contract.

Place a bid only if you're serious about buying the item. If you are the successful and winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the property bid on from the seller. You should contact the seller to resolve any questions before bidding.

When bidding absentee or proxy you may experience one of two confusing outcomes. First, it is possible that due to the random nature of bidding patterns, a live bidder may win an item for an amount equal to the maximum amount authorized by a bidder before the sale (known as both proxy bid and absentee bid). For instance, if you place a bid of $250 any time prior to the auction and the bidding begins at say $110, the outcome could occur as follows:
INTERNET Bidder 110 INTERNET Bidder 120 Competing Bidder 130 Competing Bidder 140 Competing Bidder 150 INTERNET Bidder 160 Competing Bidder 170 Competing Bidder 180 INTERNET Bidder 190 Competing Bidder 200 INTERNET Bidder 225 Competing Bidder 250
In this scenario, the competing bidder won the item for an amount equal to maximum bid placed by an Internet bidder. While any number of patterns could occur, the point is the same. First bid placed is not given precedence by the Invaluable system when a competing in-house bidder is involved. And the bidding pattern could occur in such a way that an alternate bidder wins the bid at a price equal to an absentee bidders max amount. With the second potentially confusing scenario, things are, for some reason, different. This system does grant precedence to the bidder who placed their bid first when the bidding is between an Internet bidder bidding live from a computer against a proxy or absentee bid. In this instance, when a live Internet bidder bidding from a computer attempts to bid an amount that is less than or equal to the previously placed bid of an absentee bidder, the system will award that amount to the absentee bidder because their bid was placed first! Thus the bid history will show multiple bids in sequence by what appears to be only one bidder. This is actually the system granting that absentee bidder precedence at each attempt by a live Internet bidder to place a bid. This awards the absentee bidder consecutive bid amounts but then leads them to believe that they were advanced time and again without competition.
