California Pre-Bidding

Pre-bidding allows you to preset your max overbids ahead of time and will go into the live auction for you. Different states may have different requirements regarding pre-bidding. Also, bid increments may be different from county to county. Once pre-bidding begins and GovEase has approved you, you can begin placing your bids. *Note: GovEase will send out an email to inform all bidders when auction files are available for pre-bidding.   

Follow these steps to pre-bid before the auction goes live:

1. Log in and click on Auctions.

2. Find the parcel(s) you want to bid on and put in your Max Overbid amount. (Which is a Proxy Bid)

3. Click  Place Bid (You are putting in the max overbid amount, not the total bid amount)

4. Verify your max overbid was placed (your bid will display under the My Bid column along with the overbid percentage) or view the Bidder Bid Detail page under Reports.
