Bidding information: This is a live auction with online bidding. Pre-bidding starts March 18th and will close on March 27th at 6PM during a live auction setting.   Auction is Bidders Choice, and bidding will be done at price per acre based on tax bill.  Bidders are encouraged to be at the live auction but if bidding online during the live auction, the bidder needs to be accessible by phone.    If the bidder is interested in both tracts, and is pre-bidding, it would be best practice to put a bid on both tracts.

MAX BIDDING: Pre-bidding does allow for max bidding to be used. The highest price-per acre online bid between both tracts will be brought live as the starting bid for bidder’s choice. Once the auction is live, the system will not bid on the behalf of the bidder, so bidder will need to bid on their behalf or make arrangements for the auction company to bid your proxy during the online auction.  

Bidder’s Choice: Once bidding goes live the first round of bidding the winning bidder will have the right to choose if they will take Tract 1, Tract 2 or both tracts for the price per acre bid. IF the winning bidder takes both tracts then the auction is over.  IF the winning bidder does not take both tracts, then bidding will reset and start again for the remaining tract.  If it is an online bidder, the bidder will have to be available for the phone call or have arrangements made for once the first round of bidding is complete.

Registration: Proper and complete registration is required to bid. All bidders must provide name, address, phone number and email address to register - To complete the bidding process Property Peddler will require a copy of a current state ID – a Property Peddler Team member will call to request it before approving to bid online.  By registering, all bidders acknowledge having read and agree to be bound by the Auction Terms and Conditions.  Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse to register or admit Buyer at his/her sole discretion. Buyer should register as early as possible to obtain information about the property and increase the likelihood of being notified of any pertinent changes that take place before the auction.

Contract: Successful high bidders will sign in person or electronically the auction sales contract immediately after the sale.

Earnest Money: The day of sale, the approved high bidder will deposit a non-refundable payment of 10% down - deposited with Randolph County Abstract.   Any stop payment order of a check or giving a check which is returned marked “insufficient funds,” shall be deemed by the parties to be evidence of fraud existing at the time the transaction was consummated and shall be construed by the parties as intent to defraud.

Closing: On or before April 30th 2024

Closing Cost: Buyer shall pay the purchase price, plus any customary closing costs. The closing costs may include but are not limited to the following: escrow/closing fees, recording fees, normal pro-rations, and/or document fees such as later date charges or wiring fees brought on by the title company.
