I am looking for quick sale (will require significant earnest money as part of the bid) and low hassle level (showings, etc). Seems to me the sealed bid with reserve price provides for that. If it works fine, if not what have I lost?

Thanks to all for their comments/suggestions. The bidding will start in September and will let you know how it goes.
Sounds like you will be happy with the end result and that's all that matters, I'm certainly on board with the low hassle level! Do keep us informed, I'm curious how many of the 5 parties will put in a bid.
