Important Note for Socorico Sales Effective with this sale the winning bid will be 10% over the second best bid for each lot. In the past we have used a step up bid depending on the value of the lot. In order to upgrade the management of the auctions will start with this simple system. Other options remain the same, e.g. when there is only one bid the winning price will be equal to the reserve. If the difference between the top bids is less than 10% the winning bid will be equal to the top bid.
