The first step to becoming a seller on Bid4Assets is to register for a free Bid4Assets account. An account gives you the ability to bid on all private auctions across the Bid4Assets platform. It also allows you to submit deposits for all government auctions and gives you the ability to apply for the Bid4Assets seller program. For a full guide to registration click here.
Bid4Assets primarily works with government agencies, real estate funds and small wholesalers. However, we review all new seller applications on a case by case basis. To view the new seller application, simply login to your Bid4Assets account and select “Sell.”
This will take you to the seller application page. Fill out the basic information requested on this page then click “Submit Application.” This will send your application to our client services team for review. You will be notified via email whether you are cleared to proceed in the application process within the next two to three business days. If you are not cleared to proceed, you are welcome to apply again at any time.
After your application is cleared to move forward, the next step is to go through Bid4Assets’ ID Verification screening. All sellers on Bid4Assets are authorized through an ID Verification. The process is free, quick and secure, and does not influence your consumer file or credit score. Once your application has been approved, you will be contacted by a Bid4Assets representative with instructions to begin ID Verification. If you intend to list primarily as a corporate entity, you will need to fill out a corporate verification form.
Once you pass the ID Verification screening you will be cleared to list on Bid4Assets!
In your first three listings with Bid4Assets, submitting Proof of Ownership is mandatory. Your auctions will be placed on hold until they have been reviewed and approved. They should be submitted in the form of a county approved deed to the Bid4Assets Client Services team. Please note that Proof of Ownership can be requested by our Client Services team at any time for any auction. Proof of Ownership should be sent to [email protected]
Sellers list their auctions using Bid4Assets’ EZ Lister tool. The EZ Lister listing tool, a very convenient, single page listing form, includes an HTML editor, a one-click photo upload tool, and the ability to insert information from previous auctions.
The auction listing process takes between 5 and 20 minutes (based on the number of photos and additional information you include) using our EZ Lister listing tool. If you start an auction using EZ Lister, but do not complete it, you can resume creation of the auction by clicking on the “Resume a Listing in Process” link in EZ Lister.
