CONDUCT OF THE AUCTION: Online bidding will begin ten days prior to the auction. The auction ends when the highest bid is recognized by the Auctioneer. The auction begins to end on Thursday, August 22 at 11 AM CT. Any bid within the last five minutes of the bid deadline causes an automatic extension of bidding. All of the assets in the auction are in the same extension group, which means that a bid placed on any of the assets extends the bidding on all of the assets for 5 minutes. When 5 minutes passes with no bidding on any assets, the auction closes. Because bidders may bid on different assets, the auction could therefore continue for several minutes to an hour or two after the initial bid deadline. Bid increments and bidding methodology are subject to change at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer.
 
BUYER'S PREMIUM: Property will be sold with a ten percent (10%) Buyer's Premium. The bid amount plus Buyer's Premium equals the final Purchase Price. For example: A $100,000 bid, plus the 10% ($10,000) Buyer's Premium, equals the $110,000 final Purchase Price.

TERMS OF SALE FOR REAL ESTATE: Winning bidders (“Purchasers”) will pay an Earnest Money deposit of twenty percent (20%) of the Purchase Price (bid amount plus Buyer’s Premium). Upon conclusion of the bidding, Purchaser will sign the Auction Purchase and Sale Agreement (“Auction PSA”), and must submit  earnest money deposit in the form of a wire transfer to Closing Agent/ Escrow Holder as specified in the Auction PSA. The Earnest Money deposit is non-refundable.
 
Closing must occur no later than 20 days from the auction date unless extended in writing by mutual consent of the parties. Purchaser not closing within the contractual time period to close or failing or refusing to close in accordance with the terms of the Auction PSA may forfeit his/her Earnest Money deposit. Purchaser shall execute the Auction PSA for the Property immediately after being declared the successful bidder by Auctioneer. The Auction PSA for each asset will be made available on our website at www.amcbid.com prior to the auction. The Auction PSA which Purchaser must sign at the auction contains an acknowledgment that Purchaser has inspected the property and has reviewed the Title Commitment prior to the auction, is relying solely on his/her inspection, and is purchasing the property As Is with all faults and without reliance on any warranty of any kind whatsoever. NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE TO SAID AUCTION PSA OR ANY EXHIBITS ATTACHED THERETO, AND PURCHASER WILL BE OBLIGATED TO EXECUTE AND DELIVER SAID AUCTION PSA ON AUCTION DAY.

All payments (ie, Earnest Money, Closing Funds) must be in the form of wire transfer only.
