Procedure. This is a two-tract auction. Both tracts will be offered by the “Choice” auction method. The “Choice” method allows the high bidder to choose which tract(s) they would like to purchase. If there is a remaining tract after the high bidder decides, the remaining tract will be offered with another round of bidding. Tracts will not be combined at the end. Bids will be taken in-person at the auction site and live online, including phone bids. If you are bidding for a partnership, corporation, or other entity, a document authorizing you to bid and sign a purchase agreement on behalf of the entity is required.


Financing. Bidding is not conditional upon financing. Be certain financing has been arranged, if needed, and that you are capable of paying cash at closing.


Acceptance of Bid Prices. The successful bidder will sign a purchase and sale agreement immediately following the close of bidding. The purchase price will be calculated by multiplying the surveyed acres by the accepted per acre bid. Seller reserves the right to accept or reject any or all bids for any and all reasons.


Down Payment. A ten percent (10%) earnest money deposit of the total purchase agreement price will be due immediately after a purchase and sale agreement is signed by all parties to the transaction. The down payment may be paid in the form of a personal check, business check, cashier’s check, or wire transfer. The balance of the gross sale price is due at closing.


Closing. Closing shall take place thirty (30) days after November 7, 2023, or as soon thereafter as applicable closing documents are completed. The anticipated closing date is on or before December 7, 2023.
