Ultimate Choice Bidding System: Properties with more than one tract will be offered in single tracts, combinations of tracts or as a whole. Bidders may bid on individual tracts even when they are assembled in groups. When a group of tracts has been disassembled by someone bidding on an individual tract, the top bidder for the group is no longer obligated as high bidder. The remaining tracts in the group revert back to the original bidders before the group was assembled. As a result, an original bidder may be in the winning position again. Once you have bid on a property, always check your position by going to “all bids” on the bidding page. You will receive a notice by e-mail or text, (your choice when registering) stating you have been outbid or still in the winning position. If you decide to bid on different tracts in the auction always check to see that you have been outbid on an individual tract basis (original tract you placed a bid) or you may be put in the winning position on more than one tract at the same time. As long as your original bid has been raised on a tract, you can move to another group or tract without being put into the winning position on multiple tracts at the same time. If you have questions regarding the Ultimate Choice bidding process, please contact the Auctioneers.
Contract for Sale of Real Property: Each property is offered under the specific terms provided in the contract. The Contract for Sale of Real Property is available at www.pottsbrothers.com, in the pre-bid package located from within the files tab. Please read and review the contract thoroughly prior to bidding on any property. If you have not read and reviewed the Contract for Sale of Real Property and all other materials available plus completed your own “due diligence” to satisfy all questions, please Do Not Bid!
