How does CTBIDS Work?

We will make arrangements for an online estate sale professional to meet with you for a no-cost consultation so that we can give you a comprehensive overview of how everything functions. They will spend the time necessary to not only explain each stage of the procedure but also examine all of the things you plan to list on CTBIDS. If it is necessary, we are able to assist with photographing, listing, and uploading each item. Those individuals who are in need of liquidating some assets but do not have the opportunity to participate in transitional estate sales but are still required to do so are encouraged to make use of CTBIDS as an excellent alternative.

CTBIDS Pricing Options

CTBIDS stands apart from other platforms because, in contrast to those offerings, it gives you a number of different price alternatives to choose from. Because of this, you won't ever have to limit yourself to a single approach when selling your assets; instead, you'll have more options to choose from. You have the option of selecting from the following, however:

  • Auction: In a traditional auction, you will give potential buyers the opportunity to outbid one another until the person who makes the highest offer wins the item.
    Fixed price: If you are not interested in the process of having people bid on your products, you can set a fixed price that will be sold to the first buyer.
  • Classified Ad: Advertise your wares and assets through a classified ad to increase the amount of interest that is generated in your upcoming auctions. Classified ads often include photographs, descriptions, pricing, and shipping charges. However, after the item is purchased, the advertisement will be removed.
  • Buy Now: You have the option of making an item available for immediate purchase using the buy now option, just as you do when using the fixed-price option.
  • Reserve: If you are worried about an item meeting a certain value within the bidding process, you can set a hidden reserve price that buyers cannot see. If the reserve price is not met by the end of the auction, you can choose to re-list the item or consider the highest bidder's offer.
