Auctioneers have given their data (particularly buyer data, but also seller data) to online platforms as we have partnered to sell property via either simulcast and/or online-only auctions.
And, so far almost every online platform (once with enough data and/or enough money on the table) has decided to do one of two things:
1. Turn on the very auctioneers who provided all this data
2. Sell-out to (and/or merge with) a company who will turn on these very auctioneers who provided all this data
