    Default Bidding at auction tips

    If they are quoting $440-480 I would assume the owners would want $480-500, It's risky offering a high price before auction as you could be pushing the reserve price up , just make sure you keep in contact with agent and ask them to keep you informed
    When's the auction?

    Yeah I figured. Auction is sat 2nd march. I offered $463k (when i would happily pay $500k). But he said not high enough to sell before.

    He knows to email me section 32 once it's ready and I'm organising a building inspection next week.

    He said maybe if I offer in the higher end (it's advertised $440-480k) so I assume their reserve is higher than thant or Inbetween??
    Sounds to me like the oldest trick in the book- creating anxiety, tension, anticipation and competition before hand.

    Good luck with it, as others have said stick to your limit
