Bid on the City ramps up auction schedule

Manhattan real estate auction Web site, Bid on the City, announced that it will start holding auctions on a weekly basis, due to mounting interest among both buyers and sellers. Vlad Sapozhnikov, the site’s co-founder and managing partner, said that since the Web site launched in May, the company has sold over $21 million in real estate. “We have been seeing an increasing number of properties submitted for sale, and more are coming in every day,” Sapozhnikov said in a press release. “We have just concluded the beta testing of our site and are now faced with huge backlog of both residential and commercial properties.” Properties hitting the block on Sept. 29, Oct. 6 and Oct. 13 are available for viewing online.

Tomorrow, the group will host an open house bus tour beginning at 11:45 a.m. to view six properties scheduled for auction that day. The bus will board outside the auction group’s office at 226 Fifth Avenue on the corner of 27th Street. The Real Deal looked at how Bid on the City auctions work in a May Webcast.
