Local market knowledge and a good sales strategy to collect bids are two very important factors in achieving the best selling price for your home. All our brokers spread over our branches have the right market knowledge and are happy to advise you on which of the two sales strategies below for collecting bids suits your home.
In closed bidding, the bidding round is completely protected. Until the end of the bidding round, the bids are not visible to anyone. Only after the end time has expired does the selling party receive the bidding log with all information about the bids. The seller determines the minimum sale price above which the property must be sold and is never obliged to sell the property below this minimum sale price.

In contrast to ‘closed bidding’, the bidders with ‘open bidding’ see all of each other’s bids live on our platform. This allows bidders to respond directly to each other’s bids. This is also known as bidding sale. The seller also determines the minimum sale price above which the property must be sold and is never obliged to sell the property below this minimum sale price. When the property is sold, the bidding log from our software is made public on our platform.

All bids are automatically logged in our system in a digital bid log. After the end of a bidding round and after the cooling-off period and any resolutive condition of the winning bid, this bidding log is made public with the home advertisement.
Thanks to our open bidding platform, you as a seller are really in control. You can follow all offers live, so you will immediately know where you stand. Our colleagues will help you choose the best bidding procedure to suit your specific needs. For one house, open bidding is the best choice, but for another house, a closed bidding is the smartest option. Curious about these differences? Read more about the bidding procedures here.
