At the close of the auction, the high bid will be considered for acceptance by the government. The government reserves the right to reject any or all bids for any reason.

How to bid

Visit the GSA auction site and select red button near the top right, “Place Bid.”

Auctions for real property accept flat or automatic bids.

A flat bid is for an amount at least the current bid plus the posted minimum bid increment. If the bid is greater than another bidder’s automatic bid, the system will consider this flat bid as the current (high) bid. If the bid is less than or equal to another bidders automatic bid, the system will record the bid but it will not be considered the current (high) bid.

An automatic bid is an amount that you set above the posted minimum bid. will use as much of your bid as needed to make you the current winner of the auction or to meet the auction reserve price. The system will automatically apply the minimum bid increment up to the total amount to make you the current winner of the auction or to meet the auctions reserve price. Your automatic bid amount is not shown to other bidders until it is reached through competitive bidding. You may change your bid amount but not to less than the next bid increment amount.

GSA Auctions only accepts bids in whole dollar amounts. Bids in partial dollar amounts, for example, $150.25, will not be accepted by the system.
