EASEMENTS AND SURVEY
The property to be sold is subject to any restrictive covenants or easements of record and any results that an accurate survey may show.
As a buyer you have two objectives to accomplish:
Purchasing the property.
Purchasing the property at a price you can afford.
How is this accomplished?
Estimate comparative value.
Experienced buyers always decide what to pay before the bidding begins.
Inspect the property carefully.
Compare with other properties available in the area.
Check the selling price of previously sold properties.
Discuss your buying plans with a lender. Have your financing arrangements made in advance.
This sale is not subject to financing.
AVOID OVER OR UNDER BIDDING
Always bid on a property toward a price.
Establish that price before the bidding begins. By doing this you will avoid getting caught up in the auction excitement and pay a price that is too high for the market or one that you cannot afford. It will also make you confident to bid to your established fair market value. Many bidders who do not plan ahead end up with regrets after the auction because they were too nervous or uncertain about their judgment to bid.
THE BIDDING STRATEGY
Research and know the value of the property.
Have your financing arranged before the auction.
Establish your highest and best bid before the bidding begins.
Make your bids promptly to force other bidders up or out without delay.
