Bidding Procedures: Announcements made on the day of the auction will take precedence over all printed material or oral statements made. Method, order of sale, and bidding increments shall be at the auctioneer's sole discretion.
Bidding: All bidding is open to the public without regard to race, color, sex, religion, or national origin. As used in these conditions of sale the term “the final bid” means the highest bid acknowledged by the auctioneer, and the term “purchase price” means the sum of the final bid and the buyer’s premium. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the “buyer”. Please contact our offices for information on absentee and or phone bidding. The final bid is subject to Seller confirmation. Buyer’s Premium: An 10% buyer’s premium will be added to the final bid on the property.
Example: High Bid on the Property is: $100,000 Add 10%
Buyer’s Premium: + 10,000 Total on Sales Contract (Purchase Price) $110,000.
Deposit: The buyer shall be required to pay a deposit of 20% immediately after confirmation of the final bid. This deposit will be held in a non-interest-bearing escrow account until settlement. Buyer must remit cash, complete wire transfer or cashier's check made payable to Roberson Real Estate and Auctioneers Inc. Trust if you are the winning bidder.
Closing: The successful buyer must sign all documents and contracts immediately after the acceptance of the final bid. The closing will occur within 30 days from the date of auction. The buyer acknowledges and agrees that time is of the essence.
Closing Costs: Seller shall furnish at Seller’s expense, ½ of the Revenue or Deed Stamps, ½ of the Real Estate Closing fee to the Closing Company, an owner’s policy of title insurance, and a deed. All other costs associated with the transaction shall be the responsibility of the buyer.
Financing: The sale of the property is not contingent upon the buyer obtaining financing.
Conditions of Default: If any conditions contained herein are not complied with by the buyer, Auction Company may, in addition to asserting all remedies available by law, including the right to hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price, either, a) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages any payments made by such buyer, b) resell the property at public auction or privately on seven (7) days’ notice to such buyer, or c) take such other action as it deems necessary or appropriated. If the Auction Company resells the property, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for the payment of any deficiency between the purchase price and all costs and expenses, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorney’s fees, commissions, and incidental damages, and all other charges due hereunder. In any event, the buyer’s deposit will be retained by the Auction Company as liquidated damages.
State Laws: The respective rights and obligations of the parties with respect to the Conditions of Sale and the conduct of the auction shall be governed and interpreted by the laws of the state in which the auction is held. By bidding at an auction, whether present in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone, or other means, the buyer shall be deemed to have consented to the jurisdiction of the courts of such state and the federal courts sitting in such state.
Real Estate Brokers/Agents: When offered, a specified commission will be paid to any qualified broker who is duly licensed and whose properly registered client successfully buys and closes on the property. To qualify for a commission the licensed broker/agent must first register the prospective bidder on the Auction Company website or on the Auction Company’s Broker Participation Acknowledgement Form. Registration letters must be countersigned by the prospect and include the broker’s and agent’s license number, identification of the property, any agency disclosure statements, the letter, and the participation acknowledgment form.

In addition, agents must also attend the auction with their prospects, when applicable. Auction Company will accept only one client per auction from any one Real Estate Broker/Agent unless prior approval is given by Roberson Real Estate and Auctioneers Inc.
Inspection: All property is sold “As Is, With All Faults.” Descriptions are provided as a service to customers only and do not constitute a warranty, either expressed or implied. Auction Company disclaims all responsibility for physical condition. All buyers are responsible for prior inspection of properties on which they bid, and by bidding are deemed to have so inspected the property. Placing a bid on the offered property, whether in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone bid, or other means, constitutes an agreement by the bidder to these conditions of sale. Square footage dimensions and acreage are approximate and should be independently verified prior to bidding. Auction Company, its agents, and the sellers assume no liability for errors or omissions in this or any other property listing or advertising or promotional/publicity statements and materials.
