Yes. You can create as many auctions as you like, each with their own open, start, and end dates.
If a parcel is not sold during a given auction, it can be rolled into the subsequent auction.
Yes. Each auction has its own start and end date: for a one-day auction, these dates will be the same, but for a multi-day auction they might be separated by a day or more.
When an auction is made public by the department staff, details and photographs of the parcels included in that auction are published to a dedicated website managed by Veerus, allowing interested buyers to research available properties on their own (thus reducing the effort required by your staff).
Currently there is not a direct link between Veerus Auction Manager and assessor systems. However, this is a commonly-requested feature that we are evaluating and plan to implement soon. (Please let us know if this is a feature that you are interested in, and how you’d ideally like to use it.)
There are no fees associated with an auction itself. Veerus charges a small transaction fee for each property that is sold, as a percentage of the sales price. There are no fees incurred without substantially greater corresponding sales revenue, so there is no risk of losing money during an auction.
When a subscription is started, Veerus will send you a complementary barcode scanner that has been tested to work well with Veerus Auction Manager. Use of the scanner is optional, but can help streamline the bid registration process substantially.
Bid registrations and bid cards will include a unique barcode on each printed document. When someone brings one of these documents to your office, you can simply scan the barcode to pull up the relevant account information quickly.
There is no restriction on the number of auctions, parcels, or registrants that can be managed within your account.
There is no limit to the number of pictures that can be uploaded for each parcel. However, for a smooth user experience on the published website, we recommend uploading no more than ten images per parcel.
Uploaded photographs must be less than 10MB. When a photograph is uploaded, the software may automatically resize/compress the image to optimize it for display on the website.
