Registration and Verification: In order to bid at this auction, you will be required to register at the Fisher Realty and Auction's HiBid website, www.fisherrealtyandauction.hibid.com. All Bidders seeking to register for this auction must be eighteen (18) years of age or older, must be eligible to bid in the Auctioneer’s sole discretion based on the Auctioneer’s past experience with the registering bidder or otherwise, and may be subject to verification through credit card information in the registration process.

Bidder’s unknown to Fisher Realty and Auction may be asked to provide bank letter of credit or cash deposit prior to approval.
Bid Deposit: A bid deposit in an amount set forth or communicated by the Auctioneer may be required in order to bid. Any such deposit may be required in the form of a credit card authorization or actual funds, which the Auctioneer may hold until the completion of bidding and for a reasonable period of time to allow for the release of any such deposit and/or the return of any such funds after the conclusion of the auction.
When your registration to bid on this auction has been approved, you will receive an email notification that you have been approved for bidding. In addition, bidding rights are not absolute, and all registrations, even if successfully verified by credit card as described above, are subject to manual verification at any time, and from time to time, by the Auctioneer. We may suspend or terminate your registration for this auction at any time, and for any and all reasons or for no reason, in our sole discretion. We will notify you by email if your approval to bid at this auction has been terminated or suspended.
Bidding Time: This auction is a timed auction event. Bidding is scheduled to begin and close at the times set forth on the Fisher Realty and Auction's HiBid website, www.fisherrealtyandauction.hibid.com. All time references on the bidding site for Fisher Realty and Auction’s online & live auctions are expressed in Central Time, and you should therefore be mindful of the need to convert to local time when bidding on auctions of properties located in other time zones. It is your responsibility to check the Fisher Realty and Auction's HiBid website carefully so that you are aware of the scheduled closing time.
Bidder Responsibility: Bidders must take care in entering bids, and each Bidder will be responsible for all bids placed under the Bidder’s approved registration. Once entered and recorded online, a bid is deemed to be final on behalf of the registered Bidder and may not be modified, retracted or rescinded in whole or in part.
Bid Increments: Once bidding has commenced, any advances on a bid must be made in increments at least as great as those which we, in our sole discretion, have determined. We may, in our sole discretion, change or modify the required bid increments from time to time, or at multiple times, during the auction.
Maximum Bid Amount: We also provide opportunities for a bidder to submit a maximum bid amount (often called a “Max Bid”) and to direct that our website bid on such bidder’s behalf in scheduled increments until the maximum amount identified by the bidder has been reached. In the event that you later enter a max bid with the same maximum bid amount as was previously authorized by another bidder’s max bid, or enter a specific bid in the same amount as was previously authorized by another bidder’s max bid, the other bidder’s max bid as previously entered before your bid will be deemed to be the prevailing bid at that amount, and you will be deemed to be outbid. In the event that there should be any dispute among competitive bidders with regard to the identity or amount of the high bid, the Auctioneer may reopen bidding on the property and may, in conjunction with such reopening of the bidding, designate one of the bidders as the “High Bidder” in the Auctioneer’s sole discretion. All decisions by the Auctioneer shall be final.
Extended Bidding Time: The Auction is scheduled to begin on the “Starting Date and Time” and tentatively end on the “Scheduled Ending Date and Time” that are listed on the property page of Fisher Realty and Auction’s website (www.fisherrealtyandauction.hibid.com); however, for a bid received just before the Scheduled Ending Date and Time, an automatic extension feature in the online-bidding platform will extend the Scheduled Ending Date and Time and keep the Auction open for an additional period of time beyond the time that the last bid was received, and this process will repeat every time a subsequent bid is received. Subsequent and additional extensions shall be applied to any and all bids placed during any such extension period until an extension period has expired without additional bids being placed, at which time the bidding time, as extended, shall be closed. The number of minutes of Extended Bidding Time may vary in the sole discretion of the Auctioneer. For example, if the extension period specified by the auctioneer is 5 minutes, and the scheduled ending time is 2 PM but a bid is placed at 1:59 PM, the auction closing time would be extended by 5 minutes and the auction would close at 2:04 PM. Because of the possibility of extended bidding time, Bidders should continue to participate in the auction until receiving notification that the auction has closed and, in the case of a presumed High Bidder, until receiving a notification of the amount of the high bid as of the time of closing of the auction.
Technical Problems: We have made reasonable efforts to provide for online bidding for this auction. You recognize and acknowledge, however, that technical problems with hardware, software, or internet connectivity, as well as human errors, may arise and may affect, without limitation, the Fisher Realty and Auction's HiBid website, our online bidding program and process, your or our internet service and access, and your connection to this auction’s bidding program and process. You further acknowledge that these and other technical problems may develop at any time and with or without notice. You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the Seller is in any way responsible for any such technical problems, and that you have no absolute or other right to be able to bid on this auction in the event of any such technical problems. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you further acknowledge and agree that, in the event of any such technical problems, we reserve the right to postpone or cancel the auction and/or extend the bidding time for this auction and/or relist the property for auction at another time, in our sole discretion, and that our decision with regard to any such actions is and will be final.
Terms Specific to This Auction or Property: As noted above, the Auctioneer may provide Additional Terms and Conditions that are specific to this auction or the property or properties being sold at this auction. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, such Additional Terms and Conditions may, but shall not necessarily be required to, relate to the following provisions, among others: extended bidding time; and bid increments.

Purchase Contract: If you are the successful bidder, you will be required to sign a purchase and sale agreement or similar agreement or document, however captioned or titled (the “Purchase Contract”) and other necessary documents in the form designated by, and within the time periods established by, the Auctioneer, generally 24 hours. The terms of the Purchase Contract are expressly not negotiable and the Purchase Contract must be signed in the name of the high bidder and, except as may specifically be permitted by the terms of the Purchase Contract or expressly agreed upon in writing by the Seller or Auctioneer in their sole discretion, may not be assigned to any other person or party. The Purchase Contract and such other documents will set forth the specific terms and conditions of the sale, including the time by which the high bidder’s purchase of the property must be completed. Copies of some or all of these documents are available on the Fisher Realty and Auction's HiBid website or may be obtained from the Auctioneer, and it is your responsibility to obtain, read, and understand the provisions of any such documents before bidding at this auction. The Seller’s obligations to the successful bidder are exclusively as set forth in the Purchase Contract.
Buyer’s Premium: A buyer’s premium (“Buyer’s Premium”) in a percentage specified by the Auctioneer as noted on Fisher Realty and Auction's HiBid website for each specific property auction or in the Additional Terms and Conditions may be added to the successful bidder’s highest bid price. Any such Buyer’s Premium shall become part of the total purchase price in the Purchase Contract, and must be paid by the successful bidder.
Closing: All sales must close within a period of time (the “Closing Time”) or on a date certain (the “Closing Date”) set forth in the Purchase Contract, unless extended by the Seller in writing. Unless otherwise provided in the Purchase Contract or other documents pertaining to this particular auction, any extensions shall be requested in writing not later than five (5) days before expiration of the Closing Time or the scheduled Closing Date, as the case may be, and any such requests may or may not be considered by the Seller and granted by the Seller in the Seller’s sole discretion. In preparation for the closing, the balance of the purchase price and any and all other funds necessary to complete the purchase must be provided by the successful bidder to the Seller or its closing agent(s), in immediately available funds or by wire transfer as directed by the Seller’s closing agent(s), not later the forty-eight (48) hours before the scheduled closing or at such other time as may be expressly designated by the Seller’s closing agent(s).
High Bidder’s Default: Successful Bidders who fail to close in a timely manner for any reason shall be required to release their deposit(s) to Seller as partial and nonexclusive liquidated damages and not as a penalty, and the Seller retains the unilateral right to cancel any escrow and retain the successful bidder’s deposit in the event the successful bidder fails to complete the purchase as required by the terms of the Purchase Contract.

A successful bidder who fails to submit an executed Purchase Contract, fails to make any required earnest money deposit, or fails to close in a timely manner may also be prohibited from bidding on future auctions conducted by the Auctioneer or the Auctioneer’s affiliates, in the discretion of the Auctioneer and any such affiliate or affiliates. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies, including specific performance, and/or additional money damages that the Seller and/or the Auctioneer may have in equity or at law. The Auctioneer and the Seller also reserve the right immediately to put the property up for sale again.
General Terms and Conditions: You acknowledge and understand that the Auctioneer reserves the right, for any reason or for no reason in the Auctioneer’s sole discretion, (i) to determine who has access to and who may bid at this auction, (ii) to postpone or cancel the auction, (iii) to withdraw the property or any one or more properties from the auction, (iv) to change any terms of the auction or particular conditions of sale upon announcement prior to or during the course of the auction, (v) to bid on behalf of the Seller up to the amount of any reserve price, where permitted by law, (vi) to reject any and all bids, and (vii) to select the winning bid. You further acknowledge that neither the Seller nor the Auctioneer nor any broker involved in this auction is making any representation or warranty as to the manner in which the sale process will be managed, and that, except as may otherwise be provided by law, any acceptance of a winning bid prior to the execution of a binding Purchase Contract may be rescinded by the Seller in the Seller’s sole discretion and for any reason whatsoever including the receipt of a subsequent bid, and that the Seller’s obligation to sell any property or properties in this auction shall not be binding until such final Purchase Contract is signed and delivered by the Seller and the winning bidder. The Auctioneer may sell the property or any one or more properties subject to this auction in advance of the auction, in the Auctioneer’s sole discretion. The sole and exclusive venue for any disputes regarding or relating in any way to this auction or the transactions made in conjunction with this auction shall be in the state courts of general jurisdiction located in the jurisdiction where the property that is subject to this auction is located, or if more than one such jurisdiction is related to such property or properties, in any one of such jurisdictions as the Auctioneer may select, or, at the election of the Seller in its sole discretion in any jurisdiction where the Seller maintains a principal or other place of business, and you irrevocably submit to the jurisdiction of such courts.
