What is the bidding process?
The bidding begins with the minimum bid amount, which usually begins at the assessed or appraised value, and bidding increases according to the bids received, in incremental amounts. All sales are made to the highest bidder. The auctioneer also records the name of the 2nd highest bidder and in the event the highest bidder defaults, the property may be offered to the second highest bidder.
