An estimate is a sort of indication of where the market value lies based on previous sales. It can be considered as a indication for the pricing for you as a bidder.
The estimate does not limit the amount you want to bid on the item and does not limit the final price. You can place lower or higher bids and the auction ending price can be under or over the estimate.
