Once you review their documents, you click: ‘ Enable to bid ’
How do I accept an offer?
In the property management section of an agent's account, you have a button to accept the highest offer on a property.
Once the highest offer is accepted, all active bidders on that property receive an email notifying them that bidding has now closed.
Extension Period Explained
If a bid is placed within the final 3 minutes of the scheduled closing time, the timer will reset to countdown from a full 3 minutes. This is known as the ‘Extension period’.
This will continue to happen until a full final 3 minutes passes with no bids being placed.
This ensures every bidder has a fair and equal opportunity to place another bid.
Do not delay your bid until the final few seconds. Using this strategy provides you no benefit. Due to variations in browser and connection speeds, bidders are advised to make a bid with at least 10 seconds remaining on the clock.
