Benefits of Auctions

One reason that auctions are so widely used is that they provide a number of benefits for both buyers and sellers. Sellers can usually get a better price than might be possible in a fixed-price market since all potential buyers will place a different private value on the available goods. Buyers, on the other hand, are usually able to get items they want without having to pay as much as they otherwise would be willing to. Plus, auctions don't include the stress and time constraints of one-on-one price negotiations. There's no pressure on either party.
Another benefit is that auctions can literally be used to sell almost anything. Unlike fixed-price markets that are usually only effective for items that share a common value, auctions are open to items and services that could not be readily sold in those types of markets. Land, for example, is often auctioned off because even though there is some common value to land, its real value is based on the potential that each buyer sees in the land. Wine, flowers, business services, livestock, and more are all commonly sold via auctions for this same reason.
Besides these benefits, auctions also attract participants because they are literally one of the purest types of markets left in existence. An auction is pure because both parties are focused on getting what they want out of the auction: sellers want to generate the largest amount of profits and bidders want to pay less than the value of the item. Watching an auction in progress either online or offline is like seeing the laws of supply and demand in action. Because the supplies of the goods are limited, the prices are set by the demand for those goods. The more people who want the item and the greater their desire to have that item, the higher the price is going to be when the auction closes
