Auction End Times:
There is an extended bidding feature at our website. Therefore, please be online before closing to bid further if activity extends the bids. All online only real estate auctions are timed events and all bidding will close at a specified time unless bids are placed in the last ten minutes. Since this auction is utilizing the Ultimate Choice Bidding Method this auction employs the extend-all feature. The extend-all feature extends the bidding for all lots on the auction. The auction has an extend-all feature of 10 minutes. This means if the end time is 10:00 AM and auto extend is set at 10 minutes, and a bid is placed 9 minutes before the end of the auction, this will only extend the auction to 10:01 am. The actual end time shown for the auction is the end time for all items and other bidders are always given the amount of time supplied as auto extend to consider placing a bid. Please note that this feature changes the actual end time of the auction and that no notification of this extension is currently in place. So stay present at the end of the auction to achieve your lot or if you are outbid on one lot, you may choose another. Refresh the time to stay abreast of the ending time.
Time Increase or Decrease: Taylor Auction & Realty, Inc. may increase or decrease the extended time amount at any time during the auction until the close of bidding.
ORDER OF AUCTION: Offering - The real estate is offered in individual tracts by the ultimate choice auction format.
Tracts 1,2,3 & 4
Ultimate Choice Bidding Method:
The 380± acres is being offered in four tracts ranging from 26 acres to 180 acres by the Ultimate Choice Bidding Method. The lots will be offered by the estimated map acreage. The final contract will be based on the actual surveyed acreage. This catalog will close around 10:00 am or later depending on bidding activity.
A 10 % Buyer’s Premium will be added to your final bid to equal the contract price.
Buyer’s Premium example for surveyed acreage amounts:
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 A – 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 A 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.
You may bid on a combination of parcels or a single parcel. In this catalog, you can bid on a combination of vacant lot parcels or just one also.
If a vacant lot 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.
