"Starts to Close at 6:00pm CST" - All online auctions have a posted date and time. The time provided should not be considered a HARD CLOSE. We do not employ a Hard Close; we use a Soft Close method of bidding countdown, for purposes of extended bidding.
Extended Bidding means the capability of the online auction platform to be programmed to extend the closing time of each lot automatically by a pre-determined time (by 2 minutes for instance) as long as there is still bidding activity until all bids have been placed. “Auto extend” has the same meaning as “extended bidding”. This process is seen quite often during online personal property auctions; we also employ this same process during online real estate auctions.
Why does Hudgins Auctions use “Extended Bidding”… Fairness to all bidders! Essentially, it is a built-in function that adds a time extension after a bid has been placed within the final two minutes of the countdown timer. This extended bidding feature is to ensure that the process is fair for all bidders. A similar process is used in live auctions, where bidding continues as long as participants choose to place additional bids. In our live auctions, we often give fair warning, count down, etc. to allow all bidders opportunity to bid. Should a bid be submitted during this “extended countdown”, the bidding always continues until a last and final bid is achieved. The online bidding format has been designed to emulate the live auction – Fairness to all bidders!
