AUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS -
Bidding information: This is an internet-only auction. All bidding is online. Property sold AS-IS. Seller reserves the right to accept or reject the high bid. Bidding will begin a soft close 5 minutes before the lot is due to end and until bidding ceases. A soft close is a bidding feature that allows a Bidder extra time to submit a bid if they are outbid during the final five minutes of bidding. During a soft close, the remaining bid time will be reset to 5 MINUTES after each new bid during the final 5 minutes of bidding on the land. The time period eventually runs out when bidding has ceased for a full 5 minutes. The purpose of a soft close is to allow everyone a fair chance to submit a higher bid. We encourage people to refresh bidding screens often to make sure timers are updated. If you are unsure about the reliability of your internet connection, you can bid with us in person at the 443 Executive Center in Sparta at 1811 N Market St. on the morning the auction closes.
MAX BIDDING: Enter your max bid at any time. If a previous max bid exists of a lesser amount, it will jump to the lower amount, then bid in your place one bid more to put your bid in the lead. If a max bid is already entered of the same amount, it will jump to that max bid and the lead is given to whichever bid was entered first (by seniority). You will know that you are the leading bidder if the screen for your item is outlined in GREEN or look to see if it says your bidder number with (you) behind the number. If your bid jumped to your max and you are still not in the lead due to someone else's max bid, the screen for that item will be outlined in RED.
