Starting Bid

The amount suggested by the auctioneer to open the bidding. In a real estate transaction, the starting bid will be the advertised list price. It is important to note that the starting bid for an auction is very different than the seller’s reserve price, the minimum acceptable price that they are willing to accept to sell a property.
