Terms and Conditions of Online Only Real Estate Auction
This online only auction is subject to seller confirmation and is a cash sale not contingent on or subject to financing, appraisal, survey, or inspections of any kind, as agreed to by bidders at registration prior to bidding and specified in the Real Estate Purchase Contract.
Opening Bid of $7,500 per parcel -- property will sell at opening bid or anything above that amount
Once you place a bid, it cannot be removed, even if you have bid incorrectly. Please verify your bids before submitting.
UPDATE (09.05.2019) - Per the City of Wellington ... it will cost approximately $1500 to install a water meter (the two properties share a meter and plumbing). The plumbing in the two buildings are shared, which means it will require a plumber and permits to be pulled to separate the lines and have them run to a meter. Buyers of each property agree to work together and share in this cost.
Bidding increments are as follows:
$200 - $1000 = $25
$1,000 - $10,000 = $100
$10,000 - $25,000 = $500
$25,000 - $500,000 = $1,000
$500,000 - $1,000,000 = $5,000
$1,000,000 and up = $10,000
A Buyer's Premium of 10% ($2,000 minimum) is added to the high bid. Please take this into consideration when bidding. [EXAMPLE: Final bid price on a property is $10,000 + 10% buyer's premium of $1,000 = Final price of $11,000]. This is the actual sales price that will be used on the purchase agreement, and the number upon which transfer tax and title insurance are based. At the close of the auction, the successful Bidder will be emailed Real Estate Purchase Contract to be executed and returned to Theurer Auction/Realty, LLC within 24 hours.
