Read Terms and Conditions and Complete Agreement
Upon agreement and submission, you are registered to bid.
You’ll need cash or a cashier’s check made out to yourself or Auction.com, LLC, in the amount of your maximum bidding amount. You will not be permitted to leave the location to obtain more funds once bidding has begun. You will also need a valid, government-issued photo ID (driver’s license or passport). This information will be verified upon check in.
If you are purchasing under a legal entity other than your personal name (such as a formed corporation, partnership, LLC or trust), Auction.com requires evidence demonstrating ownership and control of the entity, as well as evidence that the entity is in good standing. Bidding as a foreign (non-U.S.) entity or pending (U.S and non-U.S) LLC is not permitted.
Check in at least one hour to auction start at the auction location. Obtain an Auction Bidder Card and raise it when the auctioneer announces a price that you are prepared and willing to accept as your winning bid.
Winning bidders pay the auctioneer the winning bid amount. Payment is due on auction day or the following business day (dependent on state). Execution of sale receipt, deed upon sale and IRS Form 8300 will be completed once final payment is received (subject to state specific laws).
Title insurance is not included. The winning bidder is responsible for understanding the title before bidding and must accept the title subject to all liens and defects which survive the foreclosure.(varies by state).
