Registration at the auction (online and/or in person) finalizes each bidder's agreement to the terms and conditions of sale as stated in the Contract and its Addenda which are incorporated by reference into your bidding. Do not bid until you have read the terms and conditions. By bidding you are representing that you have read and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions for this sale as stated herein. DO NOT BID unless you have registered, received a Bidder's Card or paddle number and have read and agreed to be bound by the terms of sale in the Contract as they are enforceable against you upon becoming a high bidder.
All properties are sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" with no financing, inspection or other contingencies to sale. The broker and Auction Company represent the seller only and do not inspect properties on bidder's behalf. Read the Contract and Auction Day Notes to determine the existence of any disclosures, exclusions, representations and disclaimers. Do not bid if you have not inspected the property(s). By bidding you agree to all disclosures.
Buyers receive a deed and Title Insurance Policy as provided by the Closer indicated in the Contract (any mobile/manufactured housing not legally affixed to the property shall only be conveyed by a Hold Harmless Agreement or Quitclaim Bill of Sale unless otherwise noted in the Disclosures). Current year's taxes are prorated through the day of closing as is customary. Or in abstract states, the seller shall provide a continuation of the abstract of title thru the date of sale for the buyer or buyers attorney to examine.
The sale of this property may be subject to a Buyer's Premium, which will be added to the high bid and included in the total purchase price. Please see the Auction Day Notes, The Contract for Sale, and/or the Auctioneer for specifics about the property you wish to bid on.
Tracts sold by the acre - The contract will indicate the current acreage , bid per acre and the high bid will be the current acreage multiplied by the high bid per acre. If a survey is required prior to closing that results in a change to acreage, the contract will be adjusted to that acreage prior to closing and purchase price will reflect that change in acreage.
If a survey is required, it is typically done immediately following the auction. The per acre bid at auction will then be multiplied by actual surveyed acres to determine final sales price at closing. The purchase agreement and sales day announcements will identify the party responsible for survey cost.
Each high bidder must sign a purchase agreement and make a 10% non-refundable deposit immediately following auction to the Title Company or escrow agent noted on the Purchase Agreement. Cash, wire transfers, cashier's checks, personal checks and business checks (electronically processed) are accepted. For online only auctions, wire transfers are the preferred method for deposits. Wire instructions will be sent with the Purchase Agreement thru DocuSign. The balance of the purchase price and all closing costs are due within 30 days.
