First, they’re popular. In fact, they’re a form of entertainment, as people flock to auctions to see what’s available and, in essence, “dream big.” For instance, going to an auction is somewhat like going to a casino. With a little investment, a person could, conceivably, “win big.” With a casino, they win a jackpot of money. With an auction, they win “the prize” they hoped to win thanks to bidding their money on it, and beating the competition. So there’s the thrill of it all that attracts thousands of people to all sorts of auctions on a regular basis.
Why do people like attending auctions?
Well, they think they’re an exciting way to “receive good deals” and that they “offer a great value on items.” As you’d imagine, they also like the satisfaction they get when they “get a good price” on something they want.
Why do people like selling at auctions?
They appreciate the immediacy of it all– stuff is sold during a set time, quickly and efficiently. Sellers get to set the time and place of their sale and like knowing exactly when their items or property will, indeed, be sold. Furthermore, instead of wondering, “Gee, will it sell?,” auctions almost always sell things for sure– and that’s reassuring to sellers, as it should be.
Finally, auctioneers often do a great job at marketing their auctions, letting interested parties know the details, building excitement for the sale(s).
With auctions, people go with the intent to buy stuff. Items for sale aren’t up for discussion or debate which could drag out the process. Instead, it’s “here it is…place your bids…sold to the highest bidder!”
