Who starts the bidding?

Who starts the bidding?

You do! The Auctioneer will announce an item number, and suggest an opening bid, although the auction bidders are ultimately in control of the opening bid because there are no minimum bids. However, the auctioneer does maintain control of the increments in the advancement of bids. For instance, if an auctioneer receives an opening bid of $100 for a sofa and is asking $150 for the next bid, the auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid lower than what is asked.
