The basics of an auction can be understood from the basic way in which an auctioneer conducts a silent auction. When the bids are opened, the auctioneer usually addresses the crowd by asking who is ready to make a bid? There must be unanimous agreement to the opening bid. If there is not unanimous agreement then the auctioneer will ask who is willing to accept the lowest price.
This initial bid will be set at the price the auctioneer believes the highest bidder has agreed to. The auctioneer will have available a check to pay the next highest bid and any other required changes to the opening bid. After the money has been received from the highest bidder, the auctioneer then sums all the bids and awards the winning bid amount to the highest bidder.
