Ultimate Choice Bidding Method:

The Goodwin Real Estate is being offered in two separate catalogs. Parcels 1 – 4 which are commercial buildings and lots will be offered and sold by the Total Dollar Amount. Parcels 1 – 4 will be featured in the catalog closing at 12:00 Noon.

BUYER’S PREMIUM: A 10 % Buyer’s Premium will be added to your final bid to equal the contract price.

Buyer’s Premium example for Total Dollar Amount Bids

Bid price - $100,000.00

+ 10% Buyer’s Premium – $ 10,000.00

= Total Contract price - $110,000.00

Escrow Deposit - $11,000.00

Buyer’s Premium example for surveyed acreage amounts:

The catalog that ends at 1:00 pm will feature Parcels 5 – 16 which are acreage parcels. Parcels 5 -16 will be sold per surveyed acres. For example: when you place a bid, the total you enter will be total dollars. Before you enter that total dollar amount, estimate what you want to give per acre. Example Parcel 10 – approximately 2 acres If you want to pay $3000 per acre, enter $6000.00 and the system will display the per acre amount of $3000.00.

For example if the auction ends with a total bid price of $10,000.00 and it surveys at exactly 2 acres your contract price will be as stated below

Bid price - $10,000.00 for exactly 2 acres

+ 10% Buyer’s Premium – $ 1,000.00

= Total Contract price - $11,000.00

However, if the acreage on Parcel 10 surveys at 1.75 acres and your last bid was $10,000.00 for 2 acres which is $5000.00 an acre your contract would reflect as the example below.

If the acreage came to 1.75 when surveyed:

Bid price – 1.75 X $5000.00 $8,750.00

+ 10% Buyer’s Premium – $ 875.00

= Total Contract price - $9,625.00

You only pay the amount of acres surveyed. Remember whether more or less than stated acreage, you only pay for the amount of surveyed acres. BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COST OF THE SURVEY. Recommended surveyor is Joe Sutherland whom is familiar with the property.

The commercial buildings and the parcels are being offered in two separate catalogs by the Ultimate Choice Bidding Method. The commercial buildings will close at 12:00 noon. The parcels will close at 1:00 pm.

To view an example of the Ultimate choice bidding method visit this link: This link is featured at the bottom of our home page.

You may bid on a combination of parcels or a single parcel. In Catalog for Parcels 1 – 4 you can select and bid on a combination of the commercial buildings and the lot or just one. In the catalog for Parcels 5 -16 – vacant acreage, you can bid on a combination of vacant lot parcels or just one also.

If a vacant lot or a building parcel is in a combination, the ultimate choice bid method will allow you to extract a single parcel from a combination subject to a specified increase over the current high bid.

Opening bids are entered on each parcel individually for a base price to begin the bidding of the tracts individually or to assist with combinations. This allows bidders to bid on any tract, group the tracts in any desired combination, or bid the whole property, subject to a specified increase over the current high bid.

There is an extended bidding feature at our website. Therefore, please be online before closing to bid further if activity extends the bids.
