GENERAL TERMS OF SALE: The Treasurer has the right to reject any bids determined to be unreasonable in relation to the estimated value of the Property. Properties are conveyed by Special Warranty Deed, subject to any easements, covenants, agreements, restrictions, reservations, and any and all rights of record which may affect the property. Properties are offered for sale as-is, where is, with all faults and without any warranty, either expressed or implied. It is not guaranteed that the property has a right-of-way or that it is not landlocked. Property is sold in gross and not by the acre. Subsequent taxes will be prorated from the time of contract (the auction closing date of November 12, 2020) and the highest bidder will be responsible for taxes from that date forward. Any unsold property will be offered for sale again at the next auction, whenever that may be.

Any costs incurred by the bidder to inspect the property are at the expense of the bidder and are non-refundable.


There will be a 10% buyer’s premium added to the final bid to determine the “final contract price”. The buyer’s premium is due upon the close of the auction and will be in addition to the required deposit amount. Please consider the buyer’s premium when placing bids.
