Special Provisions:

  • This online auction will have a 5% buyer’s premium. This means a buyer’s premium in the amount of five percent (5%) of the bid amount shall be charged to the Buyer and added to the bid amount to arrive at the total contract purchase price.
  • Tracts will be tied together with the bidding set to close simultaneously. If a bid is placed with less than 4 minutes left, the time on the auction will extend another 4 minutes. This will continue until no bids are placed within the last 4 minutes. Each Tract will stay in bidding extension until there are no more bids placed on any of the Tracts that are tied together.
  • Down payment is due on the day the bidding closes and signing of the contracts will take place through email and electronic document signatures. In the event the auction bidding closes after 3:00pm, the earnest money will be due the following business day.
  • Tract 1 is cash rented for the 2023 farming season. The Buyer of Tract 1 will receive the second half rent payment of $15,860 from the tenant, due December 1, 2023.
  • It shall be the responsibility of the Buyer to serve tenant notice prior to September 1, 2023, if so desired.
  • It shall be the obligation of the Buyer to report to the Jasper County FSA office and show filed deed in order to receive the following if applicable: A. Allotted base acres. B. Any future government programs.
  • Both tracts will be surveyed by a licensed surveyor. Tract 1 will be sold by the acre with gross surveyed acres being the multiplier for said tract. Tract 2 will be sold lump sum price. In the event the final survey is not completed by auction day or if the recorded survey is different than the announced gross surveyed acres, adjustments to the final contract price will be made accordingly at closing only on Tract 1, where the gross surveyed acres were used for the multiplier. No adjustments will be made to Tract 2, as it is selling lump sum price.
