Passed In

During an auction, a property might not meet a vendor’s reserve price, so the property is then “passed in.”

It is common practice at this stage for the vendor to negotiate the price with the highest bidder, but they are under no obligation to sell their property.

They may just put the property back on the market for sale by private treaty.
