    I'd say that's your own fault for putting an end time on your house auction. I haven't heard of any houses being sold with an "auction end time". They go until the bids dry up.

    When I'm bidding on Ebay, I'll start with a lowball bid. If that gets beaten I'll reevaluate how much I want the item and rebid my maximum. If I lose, someone thought it was worth more than me.

    you guys put low ball offers and than get upset when someone else
    pays the 'true' price. :)

    i have also been sniped before, and if there is a coin that i 'must' have than
    i put in a bid much higher than coins 'value'

    Here's another trick.
    Just email the guy with an offer.
    Some accept it as they don't want to pay the ebay fees or paypal fees.
    Who knows they might have more of the same coin you are after not listed yet too.

    those last seconds count, sometimes i just give up as the price has exceeded what im keen to pay for the item.
    ive seen some ridiculous pricing for 1/10 gold pieces, im talking about 240 dollars for bullion not proof.

    Ive accidently paid a 1/10th price for a 1/20th coin.
    Damn blurry picture..no wonder no one else was outbidding me.
    Yes you can have those wonders too..."Am I paying too much because I am now winning"?
    Oh well you live and learn lol
