Auctioneer Brian Bauer and Bauer Realty & Auctions, LLC represent the Sellers only.

All bids remain legally binding for 24 hours after the auction's conclusion.

This auction begins closing on July 13th, 2024, at 1 pm; however, bidding will remain open on this property until 3 minutes have passed without receiving a bid. This soft close ensures fairness and allows the highest bidder to win. Auctioneer reserves the right to shorten or extend this time.

You are NOT bidding by the acre. You are bidding to pay a lump sum dollar amount for the property.

A 10% Buyers Premium will be added to the winning bid to determine the purchase price of the property. The bid prices shown on the auction website DO NOT include the Buyer's Premium. Please bid accordingly.

If your bid is accepted, you are obligated to buy the Property, and you agree to pay the total purchase price, which includes your bid, the 10% buyers premium, and half of the standard fees charged by the title company to close the transaction. Buyer shall also pay for half of the cost of an Owner's Policy of Title Insurance.

The successful Bidder at auction will be required to tender a non-refundable deposit in the amount of 10% of the final purchase price for tracts 1 and 2 and 5% of the final purchase price on tracts 3 and 4 by electronic transfer or other method specified by the Auctioneer within one business day after the conclusion of the auction. Failure to tender the earnest money deposit will be a default.

The Property sells in its AS-IS condition. Sellers will not make any repairs or give any concessions for repairs or remedies to any defects discovered. Each Bidder and Buyer is responsible for conducting his or her own due diligence on the Property before bidding. Any desired inspections of the Property must be completed prior to bidding at Bidders expense. The sale is not contingent upon a satisfactory inspection. The real estate purchase agreement, property disclosures, and title search have been provided for all Bidders to review on the "documents" page of the auction website.

The winning Bidder is welcome to finance their purchase; however, the sale of this property is not contingent upon the winning Bidder’s ability to secure financing. Bidders seeking financing should contact a lender for pre-qualification prior to bidding.

Buyer assumes any responsibility for an appraisal gap.

If Buyer elects to remove property from CAUV, Buyer shall pay all tax recoupments. If property no longer qualifies for CAUV due to property split, Seller shall be responsible to pay any tax recoupments. This shall survive the closing.

Seller shall provide to Buyer/s, at Seller's cost, a new boundary survey for tracts 1 and 2. If tracts 1 and 2 sell to the same buyer, no new survey is necessary.  

Tract sizes are approximate for tracts 1 and 2. The Buyer's final purchase price will be determined on a per- acre basis by the final survey for tracts 1 and 2.

Buyers purchase is subject to lease rental agreements on tracts 2 and 3.

Closing shall occur on or before August 12th, 2024, or after county-approved surveys are completed.

The sellers will provide a General Warranty deed to the Property. Northwest Title will be performing closing. (Krista McKee 740-994-4466)
