The penny auction is set to count down to the 20 second countdown clock at 5 pm Arizona time tonight, March 13th, 2012.  Bids cost $0.60 a piece and are sold in bid packs ranging from the $60 Basic pack to the $6,000 Ultimate pack.

The current end price in the property penny auction is $4.51 and there are bidders actively bidding against each other right now. has placed a reserve price of $2,750.00 for the auction, a required 275,000 bids at $0.60. Quite a high reserve, no?

Todd said he and his business partner came up with the idea of offering the property on the penny auction model. I asked him what would happen to bids placed by bidders if the reserve price was not met and he told me that bids will be refunded minus a $0.30 PayPal processing fee. If this auction proves to be a success they plan on offering more penny auctions for real estate in the Dallas and Las Vegas markets. has also advertised bidder incentives for bidders during the reserve period:

“Incentives to Bid During Reserve Period

The bidder who has entered the most number of bids during the reserve period (up to the point the reserve has been met) will earn $15,000!
The bidder who has entered the second most number of bids during the reserve period will earn $5,000!

Would you bid for real estate on a penny auction?
Previous penny auction sites for real estate included, which had big plans to offer a number of luxury condos and was only able to sell one at a bit of a loss, and which members reported an unfavorable experience. We don’t believe YayaBid ever sold the Colorado property that they auctioned on their site.

That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more popular over the last years. Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you yet know about the problem. Sexual disfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical reason, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is some to that “headache” saying after all.

    Soooo, an assessed value of $63,500 and they want a $165,000 reserve…they’re nuts! I would not have even bothered to look at it, let alone buy bids from a shill site like that. I never buy at any auction with a reserve price. Where’s the bargain doing that! That’s just people trying to get their money back at the pretense of a bargain. They are never going to make money selling houses with the penny auction model unless they kill the reserve and have several houses to start off with that they can sell for whatever the market will bear, lose a lot of money on those houses, then hope the word of a real bargain gets around to support an auction with tons of bidders and maybe a profit!
