Question: I have never been to a "Live" Real Estate Auction. How does the process work?
Answer: We realize that you may have never attended an auction, and perhaps you don't quite understand how the process works. Before the auction begins, the Auctioneer will thoroughly explain the "live bid" auction process. We will also conduct a "mock" auction to show you an example of exactly how the auction process works. The Auctioneer will disclose all of the terms and conditions of the sale. The Auctioneer will describe the property for sale in detail. The Auctioneer will ask the Buyers, who have registered, if they have any questions before the auction begins.
The advantage in buying Real Estate from American Heritage Auctioneers, is that you are going to pay just one bid more than someone else is willing to pay, which lets you determine the price. The auction usually lasts less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
If financing is needed, try to get pre-approval for an amount that you would spend on this particular property and be prepared to close within 30 to 60 days, depending on the Terms and Conditions for each particular sale. Come to the sale prepared with a purchase price in mind that you would be willing to pay for this property, and simply bid up to that amount. If someone outbids you, you can always continue to bid.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Does this property have a clear and marketable title?
Answer: Yes. When the title is transferred to you it is guaranteed to be free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, and is guaranteed with a TItle Insurance Policy.
Question: Is a home warranty available?
Answer: Yes. At a minimal cost to the buyer a home warranty is available. Contact our office prior to the closing date for more details.
Question: What is a Buyers Premium?
Answer: It's an Auction tradition that helps offset the Seller's cost for the production of the AUction event. here's an example:
If your High Bid is $100,000
The 10% Buyers Premium is $10,000
Which creates the Contract Sales Price Paid to the Seller to be $110,000

Question: Is there a charge to register to bid?
