Full Answer

Along with information about the location of the house and its condition, the home auction sites normally show either the starting bid price for the house or the current bid price, if the auction has already begun. Buyers can then proceed to either place their own value as a bid above the starting or current bid, or they can choose the next suggested bid above the current bidding price.

Auction.com includes information such as the current owner of the house, its address, when the auction is live and open to the public, and the current bidding price on the home. In addition to those details about the houses, Hubzu typically includes the size of the house, the number of bedrooms it contains, and the number of baths. RealtyTrac.com features these same details about the houses, but also mentions whether the auctions are foreclosure sales. HomeSearch.com also includes the previous valuation of the houses along with more details on the neighborhood housing market and its residents, schools, economy, environment and quality of life.
