Online Only Bidding 

Important - Read these 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.

 

Acreage & Survey:

Bidding is on a “price per acre’ basis. Ashe County GIS and Ashe County Tax records have been used to provide approximate acreages for this auction. Lot 1 is considered to be 28.51 acres +/-, Lot 2 is considered to be 3.33 acres +/- and Lot 3 is considered to be 9.0 acres +/- . Contract purchase price will be determined by these numbers unless surveyed acreage shows different, in which case the survey acreage number would be used. The acreage number multiplied by the high price per acre plus the 10% buyer premium will determine contract price. If lots 2 and 3 are purchased by separate Buyers, Buyers will be responsible for survey and survey costs to split this parcel. 

 

Lots and Tracts:

“Lot 1” is the tract on the North side of Water Tank Road. The tract on the South side of Water Tank Road is being subdivided into two tracts which are known as “Lot 2” and “Lot 3.” During the Auction, a “Lot 4” will be available for bidding, and this Lot 4 will be for the combination of Lot 2 and Lot 3, which is the entire 12.338 +/- acres on the South side of Water Tank Road. Seller reserves the right to choose which bid to accept regarding Lots 2,3 and 4. All lots have legal access from Water Tank Road.

 

Soil Testing: 

 

Property has not had soil suitability (perk) testing conducted, but Buyer is guaranteed that each tract will perk in at least one location for a minimum of a 3 bedroom 2 bath house. For guarantee to be honored, Buyer is required to apply for soil testing within 5 days of contract date. In the event a tract does not perk, Buyer can elect to continue forward with the sale or terminate the contract and receive a complete refund of earnest money deposit. 

 

Property History:

Lot 1 contains approximately 2 million+ cubic yards of earthen material recently placed by Vecellio & Grogan, Inc from Beckley, WV, who was the NCDOT contractor on the nearby US Hwy. 221 widening project. The embankment placement started on/or about June 2017 and was completed on/ or about August 2020.

 

Agency:

The Swicegood Group, Inc. is acting as an agent of the Seller and at no time acting on behalf of the Buyer. 

 

Buyer's Premium: There will be a Ten Percent (10%) Buyer’s Premium added to the final bid price to determine the final contract purchase price. For example, a bid of $100,000 is a contract price of $110,000.

 

Identity/Credit Verification: In order to verify the identity of the cardholder and that the credit card used is valid, we require a $100.00 authorization hold to be placed on your credit card in order to complete your registration. This hold will be removed by your bank in a 24/48-hour timeframe (varies bank to bank). Bidding rights are provisional, and if complete verification is not possible, The Swicegood Group, Inc. will cancel your registration, and bidding activity will be terminated. The Seller and The Swicegood Group, Inc. reserve the right to refuse service to any person who they feel to be fraudulent.

 

Seller’s Closing Attorney:

TBD

 

Auction Ending:

Online auctions are timed events, and all bidding will begin to close at a specified time. Online auctions also have an auto-extend feature. Any bid placed in the final few minutes of the auction will automatically extend the auction minutes from the time the bid was placed. Example: If an auction is scheduled to close at 6:00 and we receive a bid at 5:59, the close time will automatically extend the bidding window.  The auto-extend feature will continue until the bidding has ended. In the event that the auto-extend time needs to be increased or decreased, The Swicegood Group, Inc. may do so at any time during the auction until the close of bidding.

 

 

Outbid /Back-In Notification/Max Bid:

During this auction process, there is a chance that you will be outbid. If you have the bidding app, you will receive a popup notification, otherwise, you will receive an email. It is the responsibility of the bidder to realize and maintain their desired bidding position. You may place a maximum (max bid) which will allow the computer to protect you up to that amount. If you place a bid and immediately get a message that you have been outbid, that means someone has already placed a max bid and you will need to continue bidding until you are the high bidder in order to supersede the previously inputted max bid.
