Proper and complete online registration is required to bid. All bidders must provide valid contact information including full name, address, phone number, and email address to register. A credit card (MC, Visa or Discover) is also required and will be validated before bidding access is granted, but is not a recognized form of payment for the earnest money deposit or purchase price.  Bidders may also be required to provide proof of funds, bank letter of credit or other financial documentation if deemed necessary. By registering, all bidders acknowledge having read and agree to be bound by the Auction Terms and Conditions. Bidders may register prior to, or during the bidding period. At registration bidders are given the option of receiving emails confirming their individual bids and/or when they are outbid.



All bidding in this auction is being conducted online. (If you need assistance placing a bid or prefer to submit a bid in person, please call our office for assistance. 816-781-1134) To place a bid, bidders can either bid the next bid increment being asked for or enter a maximum bid by clicking the “SET MAX” feature.  This feature allows a bidder to enter their maximum bid and authorizes the system to only bid the smallest acceptable bid increment on their behalf when they have been outbid and only up to their maximum bid. The benefit is, not having to login and physically bid each time you have been outbid. In the case of an auction with a reserve, if the maximum bid entered is less than the reserve, the system will place the bid at the bidder’s maximum bid.  If the reserve has been met or it is an auction without reserve, the system will only bid the smallest acceptable bid increment on the bidders behalf when they have been outbid and only up to their maximum bid.  This auction utilizes a “Soft Close” feature that automatically extends the bidding time if a bid is received in the last 2 minutes of the auction. These extensions will continue until 2 minutes have lapsed without any bidding activity, at which time the auction is concluded. The benefit of these extensions is to provide an even playing field for all bidders.



A buyer’s premium of the greater of $2,500 or ten percent (10%) of the high bid shall be added to the high bid and included in the total purchase price to be paid by the successful bidder(s).


Sample calculation —      High bid                               =          $50,000

                                            Buyer’s Premium             =          $  5,000 

                                            Total purchase price       =          $55,000



Financing is not a contingency of sale in this offering. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that potential bidders ensure in advance that they are able to obtain the necessary financing to close the transaction and provide a pre-approval letter from their lender.



At the conclusion of the auction the Winning Bidder will be notified and receive an email and/or phone call confirming their winning bid status. In this or a subsequent email the Winning Bidder will receive a link to sign all documents electronically along with wiring instructions for submitting the required earnest money deposit to the named title company. Should the electronic processes described above be unavailable, alternative arrangements will be made. In any event, the contract signing and deposit payment process must be completed by close of business on auction day. A Winning Bidder whose documents and deposit are not received within the required time frame is subject to paying a liquidated damages amount equal to the down payment (charged to the credit card used at registration) and will not be allowed to bid in any future auctions. Please note that property-specific purchase contracts are available prior to the auction end date and reviews of such documents should be undertaken PRIOR to bidding. All final bids are subject to Seller’s reserve unless advertised otherwise. Any property with a high bid exceeding the Seller’s reserve will be declared “sold” by the Auctioneer. In instances where the seller’s reserve was not met in the auction, the signed contract and accompanying deposit will be presented to the Seller for approval, which shall be given or denied in the Seller’s sole discretion within 5 business days of the auction. If approval is denied, all documents and the deposit will be returned immediately.



The Winning Bidder shall be required to make an earnest money deposit equal to ten percent (10%) of the total purchase price.  This deposit must be received by wire transfer (or by certified funds), by the close of business auction day. Winning Bidders whose documents and deposit are not received within the required timeframe are subject to paying a liquidated damages amount equal to the earnest money deposit, charged to the credit card used at registration, and will not be allowed to bid in any future auctions.



The Winning Bidder shall close within 45 days of the auction date, unless stated differently in the Purchase Agreement.



Seller shall furnish at seller’s expense an Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance in the amount of the total purchase price and shall execute a warranty deed conveying the real estate to the buyer(s).

Cates Auction & Realty Co., Inc. and its representatives are Exclusive Agents of the Seller.
