FUNCTIONALITY OF THE AUCTION BIDDING APP: This Simulcast auction is controlled by our auction app software. The Auction Firm is not responsible for software functionality or lack thereof, internet malfunctions or connectivity issues, and/or bidding application or systems errors which could cause a bid to fail to be recognized, fail to successfully register an interested bidder, or recognize their bid.

*A Brief Explanation of the Bidding Process* Interested Bidders can bid online any time during the timed auction bidding period. This “Timed” method is similar to how eBay operates… where Bidders can enter their maximum bid amounts and walk away (with the software handling your bid increases automatically thereafter), or you can proactively enter each bid individually... as you desire. You will receive “Push Notifications” whenever you are outbid by another Bidder. Please contact the Auction Firm if you have any questions or require assistance with bidding or functionality of the app.
BUYER’S PREMIUM, DOWN PAYMENT & CLOSING: A Buyer’s Premium of 10% of the high bid amount will be added to the final bid to determine the total purchase price (for example: a high bid in the amount of $10,000.00 will have a 10% Buyer’s Premium ($1,000.00) added to the high bid for a total purchase price of $11,000.00). Please consider the Buyer's Premium when placing all bids. The Buyer’s Premium is firm and is non-negotiable.
CONTRACTUAL DEFAULT/NON-PERFORMANCE: If the Buyer fails to complete the transaction for ANY reason, their deposit will be forfeited and they may be held responsible for any deficiency in price upon resale, and the costs of resale, among any other remedies allowed by law. In addition, any high bidder who fails to fulfill their contractual obligations will be banned from bidding at ALL future auctions conducted by this Auction Firm.
AS IS - WHERE IS – IF IS SALE: The properties are being sold strictly "AS IS, WHERE IS, IF IS” with no financing, inspections, or other contingencies of sale. The sale is immediately binding and irrevocable. Bidders must conduct their own due diligence and investigation of the property to determine suitability prior to placing any bids. Bidders must rely solely upon their own investigation and not on information provided by the Special Commissioner, City of Waynesboro, the Auction Firm, or any of their employees or representatives. Failure of a bidder to be fully informed on a property will not constitute grounds for claims or to cancel the sale. All information provided regarding the properties was obtained from official public records and/or other sources deemed reliable and believed correct, but is not warranted or guaranteed whatsoever. Please, DO NOT BID if you have not completed your due diligence.
*NOTICE* By bidding, you are entering into a legally binding contract. An online, public auction bid, is legal and binding. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS OR BID CANCELLATIONS.
