When the car that you want to bid on goes up for auction, pay attention because the bidding will go very fast. Raise your hand up to bid. If the auctioneer doesn’t immediately see you, shout “Yes.” Once the auctioneer acknowledges your bid, he’ll turn to look for a counter bid. Then he’ll turn back to you to see if you’ll bid again. Keep shouting “Yes” when he returns to you to continue bidding. If you’d like to stop bidding, just shake your head “No” when the auctioneer turns to you.
Obtaining property through a government auction can often be very beneficial for the buyer. However, there can be many legal issues involved that must be approached carefully.

Your attorney can provide representation and can help represent you in court if you need to attend court hearings.
This site advertises auctions of seized Real Property for sale throughout the United States and Puerto Rico and includes single and multi-family residences; commercial and residential land; commercial buildings and warehouses; and operating businesses. These properties have been seized and forfeited due to violations of federal laws enforced by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Participating enforcement agencies include: IRS-Criminal Investigations Division, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Secret Service.

These programs are meant to benefit taxpayers as a whole, but could they benefit you, the individual taxpayer? Can you bag a bargain at a government auction? "GSA's goal is to maximize return to the federal government," the GSA spokesperson said. So they're not giving this stuff away. In fact, the government sets "reserves" or minimums for the most valuable property it auctions off. But judging from a wide tour of current government auctions and bids, there are still opportunities to walk away with valuable goods for a great price. Here's a look at who's selling what, where, and for how much.
