This auction features a bid extension - please see details in terms below.
Terms:  Bank Proof of Funds Required to Bid, 10% Buyer’s Premium added to winning bid to determine sale price, 10% Earnest Money Deposit, close by September 12, 2017.  Auctioneer is not responsible for bidding errors caused by internet outages, bid platform failures, or power failures.
This auction features a bid extension. This means that a bid placed on the asset extends the bidding for 5 minutes. When 5 minutes passes with no bidding, the auction closes. Bid increments and bidding methodology are subject to change at the sole discretion of auctioneer.
This feature is in place partially to prevent "sniping" which can occur on online auctions with a hard deadline. It recreates the action of a "Live Auction". If your opponent bids in the waning seconds of the auction, you still get another chance to bid.
With that in mind, don't wait out the bid until the last second, as it can put you at risk for not getting your bid in before the 5-minute clock runs out.
