Welcome to Bigfoot Auctions Inc. !
This is where we come in and take care of everything. I will move it, clean it, organize it to alike items. I will set it up and display it so it can be observed with the least amount of moving. I will sell it in the form of an Auction.
Auctions are fun and can be lucrative. They are a lot of work. I enjoy it and I am good at it.
While having a "Garage Sale" or "Yard Sale" , have you ever noticed when you have an asking price of say $ 5.00 , the person usually has a response of about half the price. That is because it is an a human tradition to barter . We all want to get a good deal so we barter back and forth until we meet in the middle.
Have you ever been to an Auction or seen an Auction ?
Have you ever heard the price at an auction go down after the auctioneer starts the asking bid or asking price ?
How come at an Auction the starting price goes up and at a garage sale or a yard sale the asking price goes down ?
