The auction house is a building that only appears in City Folk. The Auction House can be found in the City, run by a gyroid called Lloid. It is the only building in the City open for business all day and all night, every day except on Toy Day. The Auction House mainly acts as a place to sell furniture or other items to friends visiting over Wi-Fi or neighbors. When a friend visits, they can bid in the auction house.

Bidding and selling

Auctions happen over the weekend along with placing periods. When an item is put up for auction, the player can choose a starting price and then other players will have to bid above it to win the item. There is a two-day period when Lloid will accept items for display, then there's a display and bidding period. After the auction is over, there is a rest period. Lloid will tell the player what event is currently taking place as soon as the player walks through the door.

An item sold at the Auction House will be sent to the buyer's mailbox, and the player who sold the item will receive money. However, if an item is not sold, the item will be mailed back to the player by Lloid. Lloid can also let the player access their closets at home in the town through the "checkroom" to obtain items to sell at an auction.
