Terms & Conditions
With a minimum bid of just $399,000, this real estate will sell to the highest bidder.

- Our live auction at the premises begins at noon on Saturday, September 25, 2021. Registration begins at 11 AM.

- We strongly encourage bidders to arrange necessary financing ahead of auction day. Knowing the amount of a mortgage you are approved for determines how much you can pay for any property, no matter how you buy it.

- Real estate is offered and sells in as-is condition, where-is, with no representation or warranty, and with all faults and benefits. Data is deemed reliable but is NOT guaranteed accurate.

- Auction Day Registration: Bidders must present photo identification and a $39,900 bank cashier's check to register. Make check(s) payable to LEGACY AUCTION & REALTY. Balance of auction-day deposit, if any, is due by the winning bidder in the form of a personal or business check.

- Non-refundable buyer premium of ten percent (10%) of the winning bid will be added to the winning bid to equal the final sale price. This amount is due at the announcement of "SOLD!"

- The Winner! The successful purchaser will be required to deposit a bank cashier’s check for $39,900 and if necessary, increase the total deposit via personal or business check to 10% of the winning bid (hammer price). For example, a winning bid of $555,000 requires an additional auction-day payment of $15,600 ($39,900 + $15,600 = $55,500, equaling 10% of the winning bid).

- Closing within 30 days, or by/before October 25, 2021.
