REAL ESTATE AUCTION – MULTI-PARCEL AUCTION:
1) Alexander Auctions & Real Estate Sales conducts a Multi-Parcel Style Auction when there are numerous tracts in the auction.
2) The Multi-Parcel Auction means the real estate will be offered in numerous ways, in individual tracts, in combination of tracts and all tracts as a whole.
REASONS TO OFFER THE LAND IN SEPARATE TRACTS:
1. Offering the land in tracts allows a seller to sell their property to a purchaser who is willing to pay the most and still sell all the property at one time.
2. Offering the land in tracts in a reserve auction allows the seller to sell the tracts which reach their reserve and retain the balance.
3. Marvin Alexander, owner of Alexander Auctions & Real Estate Sales, will divide the land into tracts to create and generate interest from a purchaser who cannot afford the entire property, from individuals who only want a portion of the property and those who can only afford a house or small acreage.
4. Some purchasers cannot afford the entire property and many will not desire the entire property.
5. Some farmers and investors, who desire the land, may only want tillable land.
6. Numerous prospects for a residence may want a few acres and others may want a residence and ten to fifty acres.
REASONS TO OFFER THE LAND IN SEPARATE TRACTS:
1. During the auction process, a computer run multi-par program is used to track every bid on each individual tract, every bid for different combinations of more than one tract and the bids for the total number of tracts.
2. The multi-parcel computer program allows Alexander Auctions & Real Estate Sales to offer tracts which do not have frontage along the road and gain leverage and higher price. You cannot sell land locked tracts, included in the terms and conditions will be that any tracts which do not join the road frontage must be purchased by someone who purchases one or more adjoining tracts with road frontage or they can be purchased by current adjoining property owners. This allows adjoining owners to add acres to square out boundaries and desirable acres.
3. This computer program allows Alexander Auctions & Real Estate Sales to offer the timber separate and/or combined with the land.
4. Alexander Auctions & Real Estate Sales will auction all tracts individually, in combinations and all tracts in their entirety.
5. All bids are entered into the computer with the respective tract numbers, prices and purchasers.
6. When a bidder combines all the tracts together the bidding continues until no other bidders bid higher on the total, then the total bid is entered into the computer.
7. In the event all tracts are combined together or certain tracts are combined together, the auction process starts again. Anyone can raise a bid on any tract or make an offer on any new combination. When new raises are made on individual tracts or combinations, all of the tracts will be offered together again. When these new bids reach a sales price that is higher than the total bids on all tracts as a whole, we offer all the tracts together again. If someone makes a bid which exceeds the total for individual tracts and combination of tracts, the process starts over again.
8. This process creates leverage and competition among buyers.
9. The Multi-Parcel Auction allows an individual who only wants one tract or a certain combination of tracts to bid collectively with other purchasers to reach the highest selling price.
10. The Multi-Parcel Auction allows all bidders an opportunity to purchase what they desire and what they can afford.
