For many years the Realtors in the Lake Cumberland area have partnered with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life to increase cancer awareness and raise funds to support cancer research and Hope Lodge in Lexington, KY. Hope Lodge supports a lot of patients from the Lake ® Cumberland area annually. In 2017, the local Realtors began to split the proceeds of this annual auction with Hospice of Lake Cumberland to support Camp Promise. Camp Promise is a free camp offered for grieving children ages 6-16 and is hosted by Hospice of Lake Cumberland every June.

Online Auction Ending Times:
Ford Brothers, Inc. Online Auctions are timed events and all bidding will close at the specified time. Ford Brothers, Inc. Online Auctions also have an auto-extend feature. If a bid is placed in the final 5 minutes of an auction, the close of the auction will be automatically extended 5 minutes from the time the bid was placed. For example: if an auction scheduled to close at 6:00 receives a bid at 5:59, the close time will automatically extend 6:04. The auto-extend feature remains active until no further bids are received within a 5-minute time frame. Please monitor the countdown timer to see when the lot will close.
Staggered Closing: This online auction closes in intervals. Depending on how large (# of lots) an auction is, then we set the auction to close so many lots at a time. If it is a large auction then it will be 75-100 lots at a time. If it is equipment and has 150 lots or less, then we will close the auction approx 10-25 lots at a time, all in 5-minute intervals. Please monitor the countdown timer to see when the lot will close. Please check the auction announcements for detailed information regarding these intervals. This feature works great with the auto-extend feature to closely emulate a live auction.
