The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to persue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. The guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve (see below). Both the guide price and reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. RESERVE PRICE This is seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. A reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
