On July 18th, each of these remarkable homes will be sold via public auction.  To qualify for this event the homes have to be the finest craftsmanship, unique in design, and originally listed in excess of $1 million. These sellers are rightfully proud of their homes, but no longer wish to retain the properties and have chosen auction to expedite the sale.  All the properties will be open for viewing at Open House Events.  Bidding will be available live on-site, live online, and live in Kansas City. Qualifying pre-auction offers will also be considered.


PROPERTY DETAILS:  Each property has a full listing on this website with extensive details, pictures, and documentation.  Click “Upcoming Auctions” in the upper left portion of this screen and then select the property you would like to explore.  (Be sure to check out all 4!)

The successful bidder must sign all documents and contracts immediately upon conclusion of the auction.


A 5% non-refundable earnest money deposit shall be required of the successful bidder immediately following the auction.


A buyer’s premium of  percent (6%) shall be added to the successful bidder’s high bid and included in the total purchase price to be paid by the successful bidder.

A commission of 3% calculated on the successful buyer’s high bid, shall be paid (where allowed by law) to the qualified broker who is duly licensed in Missouri, whose properly registered client is the successful bidder at the auction, and whose client pays for and settles on the property by the closing date. A broker shall not be entitled to any commission on account of any sale to entity of which (or of any affiliate of which) the broker is a principal, employee or affiliate, or immediate family member. Brokers must register their prospective clients on the appropriate form by contacting Cates Auction & Realty, Co. The form must be submitted via fax (816) 781-1135 no later than 48 hours prior to the auction date.

In the event of any dispute between bidders, the Auctioneer’s decision is final. Should there be any dispute after the sale, Cates Auction & Realty, Co.’s record of final sale shall be conclusive.


All announcements made the day of sale take precedence over any prior written or verbal terms of sale. If any conditions contained here-in are not complied with by the successful buyer, Cates Auction & Realty, Co. may, in addition to asserting all remedies available by law, including the right to hold defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price, either (a) cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages any payment made by such buyer; (b) resell the property without reserve at public auction; or (c) take such other action as it deems necessary or appropriate. The retention of the bidder’s deposit shall not limit any rights or remedies of Cates Auction & Realty, Co., or the seller(s) with respect to the buyer’s default. If the property is resold, the original defaulting buyer shall be liable for payment of any deficiency in the purchase price and all costs and expenses, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorney’s fees, commissions, incidental damages, and all other charges due hereunder.

To register, a prospective bidder must provide name, residence address, phone number, fax number, social security number, and a valid driver’s license.

The successful bidder shall execute a Real Estate Sale Contract (RE Contract) immediately after being declared the winning bidder by the Auctioneer. Upon execution by the Seller, the RE Contract will supersede all printed material and will serve as the governing document for sale of the property. The RE Contract contains an acknowledgment that the purchaser has inspected the property prior to the auction, is relying solely on his/her inspection of the property in making the decision to purchase, and is purchasing the property ‘as is, where is” with all faults and without reliance on any warranty of any kind whatsoever. No changes in the Terms and Conditions of the RE Contract will be permitted. A sample RE Contract is included in the Property Information Package available at www.CatesAuction.com and at auction registration.

Therefore, it is strongly recommended that potential bidders ensure in advance that they are able to obtain the necessary financing to close the transaction. If purchaser cannot obtain financing on the property because he/she cannot fulfill terms or does not qualify, then purchaser must either close for cash within the contractual period or forfeit his/her earnest money deposit.


Taxes are to be prorated between Purchaser & Seller as of the closing date.
