Auction Services | Glossary of Auction Terms

The following is a glossary of real estate auction terms developed by the National Association of Realtors, Real Estate Auction Committee, the National Auctioneers Association and the NAA Education Institute. A person who does not attend the sale but submits, in advance, a written or oral bid that is the top price he or she will pay for a given property.


Real Estate | Hostetter Auctioneers

Consequently, auctioneers use strong media advertising, targeted direct mail, internet advertising and other aggressive marketing techniques to get the word out about the auction and attract bidders to it. It would probably be one that sold the property quickly at a price that both the seller and buyer consider fair and that gave the real estate agent a good fee or commission too.
