Registration on the Online Bidding Platform (www.primetimeauctions.com) signifies an agreement to these Terms. In addition, completed registration on the online bidding platform serves as certification that bidder has reviewed all available documents including: Terms of Auction and Property Specific Disclosures.
Proper and complete online registration is required to bid. All bidders must provide valid contact information including full name, address, phone number, and email address to register. A credit card (MC, Visa, or Discover) is also required and will be validated before bidding access is granted, but is not a recognized form of payment for the earnest money deposit or purchase price. To be fully approved for bidding a potential bidder must communicate over the phone or email with a Prime Time Auctions Representative. By registering, all bidders acknowledge having read and agree to be bound by the Auction Terms and Conditions. Bidders may register prior to, or during the bidding period. At registration, bidders are given the option of receiving emails confirming their individual bids and/or when they are outbid.
All bidding in this auction is being conducted online. (If you need assistance placing a bid please call our office for assistance at 208-232-4912)
To place a bid, bidders have the option to bid in one of three ways
- Bid the current asking price
- Bid a specific amount
- Create a maximum bid.
The “maxbid” or SET MAX” feature allows a bidder to enter their maximum bid. This authorizes the system to only bid the smallest acceptable bid increment on the bidder’s behalf when they have been outbid and only up to their maximum bid. The benefit of this feature is to provide you, the bidder with an easier way to bid by not having to login and manually bid each time you have been outbid. This auction utilizes a “Soft Close” feature that automatically extends the bidding time if a bid is received in the last 2 minutes of the auction. These extensions will continue until 2 minutes have lapsed without any bidding activity, at which time the auction is concluded. The benefit of these extensions is to provide an even playing field for all bidders.
A buyer's premium of 5% of the high bid shall be added to the high bid and included in the total purchase price to be paid by the successful bidder(s).
Sample calculation -- High Bid Online Auction = $100,000
5% Buyer’s Premium = $ 5,000
Total purchase price = $105,000
Financing is not a contingency of sale in this offering. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that potential bidders ensure in advance that they are able to obtain the necessary financing to close the transaction and provide a pre-approval letter from their lender.
At the conclusion of the auction the Winning Bidder will be notified and receive an email and/or phone call confirming their winning bid status. In this or a subsequent email the Winning Bidder will receive a link to sign all documents electronically along with instructions for submitting the required earnest money deposit to the named title company. Should the electronic processes described above be unavailable, alternative arrangements will be made. In any event, the contract signing and deposit payment process must be completed by close of business on auction day. A Winning Bidder whose documents and deposit are not received within the required time frame is subject to paying a liquidated damages amount equal to the down payment (charged to the credit card used at registration) and will not be allowed to bid in any future auctions. Please note that property-specific purchase contracts are available prior to the auction end date and reviews of such documents should be undertaken PRIOR to bidding.
