You may run your auction for 5, 7 or 14 days. Most bidding occurs within the last three days of your auction.

5. Can I retract a bid on my auction?

You are in control of your auction and responsible for contacting bidders to be sure all questions are answered and your information is clearly presented.

If you need to retract a bid, login to your account, click on the tab "My Auctions" and then click the link to "view or retract bids". The bidder will be notified of the bid retraction.

Please be sure the bid retraction meets the following requirements:

Reasons to retract a bid: Do NOT retract if:

  • The bidder has poor reviews
  • The bid was placed by mistake
  • Unable to contact the bidder
  • The bid is too low
  • A higher bid was placed
  • You no longer want to sell or rent
  • The property is no longer available
