It has been said that an Auctioneer is simply carrying on a one-way conversation. The main point is for the potential buyer to hear the numbers they are calling with a great amount of clarity. Most Auctioneers, depending on what they are offering, will sell in what is known as a three-part chant.
Part 1 is a statement, part 2 is a suggestion, and part 3 is a question.
“25 dollars bid” is the statement.
“Now 30” is the suggestion.
“Would you give 30” is the question.
“Are you able to buy um at 30” is another question.
If you put all three parts together you have an auction chant:
“25 dollar bid Now 30 Woody Give 30 ye able to buy um at 30
25 now 30 woody give 30 ye able to buy um at 30
25 dollar bid here now 30 woody give 30 ye able to buy um at 30”
