Whether you are buying or selling, GOBIDTODAY.COM is your local source for competitively priced goods ranging from tractors to fence posts, to custom creations such as knives and furniture. When it comes to buying everyday items, buying at auction can mean getting a better deal than at retail. Selling at auction can mean getting a fair price even if you’re not sure how much something unusual is worth.

And that makes auction the right way to sell rare items, as in the news about a late farmer in southern Idaho who had assembled a collection of 70 classics – “Model As to MGs, Plymouths to Pontiacs, Chevys to Studebakers, Bentleys to Rolls Royces,” as KTVB put it.

WHY AUCTION?

“Auctions, when conducted correctly, are the best and most efficient way to sell your assets,” GOBIDTODAY.COM auctioneer Kyle Musick said. “A major mis-conception is that auctions are only for distressed or discounted property. The fact is auctions are the pri-mary sales method when selling valuable assets such as vintage vehicles, multi-million dollar homes and price-less pieces of art. Think of auction companies such as Barrett-Jackson, Sotheby’s or Christie’s Auctions. The competitive bidding of an auction and the bidding of prospective buyers sets the price and market value of an asset. The item will not sell for more than the high-est bid and will not sell for less than the high bid. The bidders determine the market value of an item when sold at auction.”
