iBidcondo’s innovative selling system follows the process of a tradition property auction with the exception that there is no minimum or reserve price. Unlike many other online auctions, iBidcondo does not charge bidders for each bid. To cover the retail price of the property being auctioned, iBidcondo sells a limited number of virtual auction seats at an average of $100 per seat. With the need for a minimum price now removed, it is left to the bidders to determine the auction price of the property. This innovative process also permits the net proceeds (estimated around 80%)to be donated to a registered charity of the highest bidder’s choice.
