Terms & Conditions
Online Only Real Estate Terms
*The Swicegood Group, Inc. /Auctioneer are interchangeable terms
Importance of Terms:
Please take the time to read the following set of terms and conditions for the Online Auction. When you register to bid, you will have to acknowledge that you have read these terms and conditions. If you intend to register, the following items will pertain to you.
The Swicegood Group, Inc. is acting as agent of the Seller and at no time is acting on behalf of the Buyer/Bidder.
There will be a Ten Percent (10%) Internet Premium added to the final bid price to determine the final contract purchase price. To verify that the credit card used for registration is valid, the bidding platform requires a $100.00 authorization hold be placed on credit cards to register as a Bidder. This is called a “ping” to your account which means money out/money right back in and is used only as verification that your account is active and viable.
Online Auctions are timed events and all bidding will begin to close at a specified time. Online Auctions also have an auto-extend feature or Soft Close feature. Any bid placed in the final five minutes of an auction, will automatically extend the auction five minutes from the time the bid was placed. The auto-extend feature will continue until there is a five-minute period without a bid being placed on any item in the auction, the auction will close. This soft close feature allows for active or real time bidding to occur simulating a live auction event.
At the Auctioneer’s discretion, the auto-extend time may be adjusted, The Swicegood Group, Inc. may choose to modify the auto-extended time increment at any time during the auction until the close of bidding. A Pop-Up Message in the Instant Message Center on the bidding page will notify Bidders of the time remaining.
Property Information & Inspection:
The Swicegood Group Company, Inc. is not responsible for any missing or incorrect listing information. The Swicegood Group Company, Inc. has attempted to provide accurate descriptions; however, it is the Bidder's responsibility to conduct inspections to determine the condition and feasibility of the Bidder’s intended use. Descriptions that are provided by The Swicegood Group Company, Inc. are provided in good faith and are matters of opinion. It is automatically acknowledged by registering that you have personally inspected the property, hired an agent to inspect the property, or waived your right to inspect the property and that the property is being sold “AS IS, WHERE IS.” Placing a bid creates a contractual agreement to purchase the property at the high bid price plus an Internet Premium and any additional fees included in closing the real property transaction.
The Swicegood Group Company, Inc. has full discretion to modify the date and time, order, and details of the auction for any reason or no reason at all, including but not limited to technical issues, emergencies, and the convenience of The Swicegood Group Company, Inc. or the Seller.
