Purchase Documents. Once the Winning Bidder is selected Purchase Documents will be emailed to the Winning Bidder’s email address on file with Sellio. The Winning Bidder must execute the Purchase Documents within 24 hours of the completion of the Auction Event or the Winning Bidder may be deemed to be in default of their obligations.

The Bid Deposit will be charged and retained by Sellio and the next highest Bidder will become the Winning Bidder.  

 

Earnest Money Deposit. The Winning Buyer to pay a deposit to the escrow/closing agent as described by the Property Details page. The amount of the Earnest Money Deposit is specified in the Purchase Documents or the Property Details Page for each Property. Unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Documents, the Earnest Money Deposit must be received by the escrow or closing agent no later than two business days after Winning Buyer receives wire instructions, time being of the essence. If the Earnest Money Deposit is not timely received, Sellio or Seller may declare Winning Buyer to be in default of these Terms and Seller may reject Winning Buyer’s Offer.
