Auctions in August - Instructions
New Bidding Rules
Online items have staggered closing times. (Please note the time for the item that you are bidding on for the online auction.)
- There will be a 30 minute time frame when all bids will be silent.
- The silent time is listed for each item on the website. Before the 30 minute silent period begins, the highest and last bid will be posted for bidders to see.
- Bidders will have one last opportunity to place their highest bid during the last 30 minutes.
- All bids placed at this time are private. In case of a tie bid during the silent time, the bidder who placed in the first bid will be the winner.
- Winners’ names will be posted on the AUCTIONSINAUGUST.COM website as soon as results are confirmed.
Value of Items
The value of items are determined by the donor and not by Gulf Coast Bank.
