I haven’t been to very many sheriff sales, but the ones I have been to have started on time. The time that was posted in the paper.
I have been a regular at other real estate auctions.
Never seen what you are talking about happen. At one auction the auctioneer did say that he was taking bids in one thousand dollar increments. That did not stop me from bidding the property up by $500 increments. The auctioneer didn’t get upset with me, but the other bidder did. I stopped the auction at that point by asking the objecting other bidder who was holding the auction, himself or the auctioneer. Everybody had a good laugh and the other bidder got the property. Thank you , he can have it at that price.
