Once the assets are placed up for auction, the items will start at an opening starting price set by the auctioneer. The price of the items being auctioned will increase every time a new bid is placed by a bidder (buyer of the item), until all bidders have placed there highest bid they are willing to pay, then the auctioneer announces the item sold at this time the most recent, highest bidder has won the item.
