What does “sealed bid” mean?
A sealed bid means that the amount that you bid for the downpayment on any land parcel is between you (the bidder) and the seller of the land parcel.

Unlike eBay, where the highest bid is available for all to view as soon as it is made, we have found that the sealed bid is best and gives everyone an equal chance to own land, instead of professional speculators coming in at the last moment before a land auction closes and out-bidding by one or two dollars, just to keep anyone else from owning the land.
