1.   Parcel 1, Parcel 2 (Tract 2), Parcel 3, Parcel 5 & Parcel 7 are subject to certain restrictive covenants which were established by the developer(s).  Copies of said restrictions are available for your review.    


1.     First the auctioneer will use the traditional auction call to establish bids on the individual tracts/lots.

2.     Once bids are established for each individual tract, a bidder may create combinations of tracts. (simply add the bids of the individual tracts together and bid more than the total)  By bidding on a combination of tracts the bidder will get all of the tracts in the combination or nothing at all, if you are out bid.

3.     Then bidders on the individual tracts will be offered the opportunity to raise their bids to regain the lead.

4.     This process will continue back and forth for several minutes. The auctioneer may call bids on individual tracts, combinations or the entire property.  Until bidding stops and the property is SOLD!

5.     If at any point you would like to bid on the property in its entirety you simply bid more than the total price.

6.     It is very important that if your number appears anywhere on the bid board that you DO NOT LEAVE THE AUCTION as bids made on other tracts can put you back in the lead even if you don’t bid any more money!


1. If the Seller determines that a boundary survey is required to establish a legal description, then a survey shall be prepared by Shuler Land Surveying of Bolivar, MO. The Seller and Buyer(s) shall share equally in the cost of the survey. Tracts purchased in combination shall receive a perimeter survey only, if any. In the event that an existing legal description is available then no survey will be required and as such, a survey will not be conducted.

2. The locations of the tract signs on the parcels are approximate. These signs are not survey markers nor are they substitutes for survey markers, there may be a difference of several feet in any direction between the location of the tract sign and the actual location of a boundary line.

3. The acreage estimates for each tract were developed using GIS satellite technology. These are fairly accurate estimates, however they are only estimates. Therefore, the bid price for unimproved tracts or combinations of unimproved tracts shall be adjusted at closing to reflect the results of any required survey work, if the surveyed acres are different than the estimated acres. It is important to note that this adjustment shall reflect both additions to and subtractions from the estimated acres and subsequently the final purchase price. However, there shall be no prorated price adjustment for any tract or combination of tracts that contain building improvements.

4. The seller may choose to qualify the sale of their property under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Service Code (tax deferred exchange). Buyer(s) shall cooperate with said exchange and shall be held harmless from any and all claims, costs, liabilities, or delays in time resulting from such an exchange. Buyer shall agree to an assignment of this contract by the Seller.

5. The sale of the property does not include items that are portable in nature or items that have been specifically advertised separately from the property. This shall include but is not limited to: propane tanks, stored building materials, etc.

6. In the event that the property sells in tracts and water or septic lines happen to cross a boundary line onto an adjacent tract the Buyer(s) of the adjacent tracts(s) shall be required to grant the easements necessary for the operation and maintenance of such systems. Furthermore, Buyers of any and all tracts shall be required to grant the easements required by the local power company to supply electrical service to each tract.

7. There may not be fence lines separating the tracts of each parcel. Neither the Seller nor the auction company shall be responsible for any new fencing.  Any new fencing shall be the sole responsibility of the Buyer(s).

8. Please keep in mind that the Agreement to Purchase Real Estate you will be signing at the close of the auction will be drawn up based on the manner in which you bid. You will be closing on the tract or combination of tracts on which you are the successful bidder in the manner in which you bid at the auction.
