Live Auction Denver

live auction denverHave you ever been to a live auction? Denver residents interested in purchasing artwork, historical memorabilia, antiques, and estate items should consider attending an auction instead of focusing solely on direct sales. Kaminski Auctions has decades of experience as a professional auctioneer, and we believe there is no experience quite like a live auction. Denver art lovers, antique enthusiasts, and collectors should consider attending one of our live auctions in person, via absentee ballot, or though our other offered bidding channels.

What Is a Live Auction?

Denver residents interested in participating in a live auction should understand how the process works before committing to any bids. A live auction in Denver or anywhere else can be an exciting, spirited, and sometimes competitive ordeal. The auction house or host will announce a list of items to be auctioned, but it is not uncommon for surprise items to make their way to the auction house floor with little to no prior notice. Kaminski Auctions has a highly trained and extensively experienced team of professional appraisers who determine the authenticity, quality, and value of every item to be auctioned. The auction house uses the appraisal information to determine an appropriate starting bid, or base price, for each item.

When an item is up for auction, the auctioneer will announce the starting bid, and then participants have the opportunity to place bids in increasing increments. Depending on the item being auctioned, bidding can get very competitive, and the final sale price of an item could easily eclipse the starting bid. On the other hand, it is not unheard of for an item to sell for a little more than its starting bid or for just the starting bid alone if there is only one interested bidder.

Preparing for a Live Auction in Denver

It is fairly typical for those who attend live auctions in Denver and throughout the US to arrive with a particular item in mind that they wish to purchase. Kaminski Auctions hosts 12 auctions each year, and every auction could include a vast assortment of surprising and unique pieces unavailable anywhere else. If you wish to attend a live auction in Denver or at any other location, take time to research the auction house and see what items will be available for bidding at the auction. Plan ahead, but never forget that others will likely have their hearts set on the same items you wish to purchase!

If you have never been to a live auction in Denver or elsewhere before, it maybe worth attending a few in person regardless of whether you plan to bid on anything. Visiting a live auction and seeing live bidding in person can help you gain a better understanding of the atmosphere of a live auction. Denver art lovers, collectors, and antique enthusiasts will be hard-pressed to find a more exciting method of filling out one’s personal art collection or securing truly one-of-a-kind antiques.
