The Secrets to Auctions by Wayne Wheat
Bid & Grow Rich: The Secrets to Auctions is a fantastic resource for both those that are new to the auction scene and those who have more experience with them. The book begins by explaining the basics like what the auctioneer is actually saying and what the bidder’s assistants do.
Once you have the basics down, the author explains more about the techniques you can use to influence the bidding process and affect the price you’ll pay. Â I honestly had no idea that how you bid could affect the price you ended up paying.
I also really appreciate that the author explains how to be a knowledgeable bidder while also maintaining a professional, friendly relationship. We live in a small town and local groups run our auctions. Maintaining goodwill for future relationships is important.
Another plus is that you’ll enjoy this book whether you want to keep the items you win or resell them. It is a great starting to point for everyone who wants to attend an auction. Here are a few more tips for novices in this article.
I was very impressed with the knowledge the author had about auctions. He offered several tips about how to tell that the auction is private or sold as part of a government auction as well as how to spot suspicious auctions so you don’t get cheated.
So, you can easily use the information he shares for any type of auction including antiques, real estate, cars, and even business liquidations.
If you want to learn more about the secrets to auctions, I definitely recommend you buy it now. If you have Amazon Kindle Unlimited, you can read this book for free.
