Caring Transitions of Rockville is Providing Online Auction Services Through CTBIDS

Explore how Caring Transitions of Rockville Can Help You List Items for Sale Through Our Innovative Online Auction Platform in Rockville, MD, and the Surrounding Areas

Estate sales can be an extremely effective means to liquidate an estate and find your loved one's belongings a new loving home. However, in-person estate sales can be a time-consuming and stressful endeavor for many families. Caring Transitions recognized that many clients needed an option that was less time-consuming and involved than an estate sale. So, our team created CTBIDS to enable clients to sell items online conveniently in a short amount of time. 

How Our Online Auction Services Work

In the beginning, you will meet with our team during a free in-home consultation to assess your needs and how we can help. We will survey the items you wish to list on CTBIDS and begin preparing them for sale. Our team can help with photographing these items, describing them, and listing them with you. Once these items are listed on our online auction platform, you can sit back and watch your articles begin to sell and find new homes.

How CTBIDS Works

CTBIDS is a unique online auction platform because it offers a variety of pricing options. This allows us to truly customize the auction to your preferences and find new homes for your items. A list of our pricing options is as follows:

  • Auction: In a traditional auction, you list your item and then let bidders compete for it until it is sold to the highest bidder.
  • Fixed Price: If you are interested in skipping the bidding process, this pricing option allows you to set a fixed price for the item to be purchased by the first buyer.
  • Classified Ad: To generate more interest in your online estate auctions, you can run classified ads that showcase images, descriptions, prices, as well as shipping costs of particular items. 
  • Buy Now: Buy Now items are similar to fixed-price items since they are available for instant purchase at a pre-set, non-negotiable price.
  • Reserve: Reserve pricing is helpful if you are interested in continuing the bidding process but do not want to let go of the item until a specific value is met. Reserve pricing allows you to set a price behind the scenes that the bidders are unable to see. If the price has not been met at the end of the auction, you can restart the auction or consider the highest bidder's offer.
