With the explosion of on-line auction companies it is plain to see that more and more people are finding out the merits of the auction method of sale. For decades it has been a recognized way to establish the true value of an item. Rather than just pit Buyer against Seller to establish a price, you get a group of interested Buyers “negotiating” with each other assuring top dollar! Pitted against the other bidders, you watch their faces, listen to the chant of the auctioneer and hear the enthusiastic response of the bid spotters until an item is sold. Not only are auctions a great way to convert assets to dollars, it gives you an opportunity to compete in a fun "sport" that requires no special training.
