This property is a true find! Private lakefront living with 7 acres to explore. The sellers have enjoyed the natural beauty of the land and lake for nearly 30 years and have recently downsized. The property was sold at auction earlier this year, but the buyer failed to perform (no fault of the seller or the property), so this is a rare “second chance” auction. And, there’s no reserve! Check out the photo gallery, visit the property at an open house, then log on and bid your price!

It offers world-class boating, skiing, fishing, shopping, and dining opportunities. Top-notch golf courses, parks, and other recreational activities add to its universal appeal.






Proper and complete online registration is required to bid. All bidders must provide name, address, phone number, and email address to register. A credit card (MC, Visa or Discover) is required to actually place a bid on the property. The credit card will be validated before bidding access is granted, but is not a recognized form of payment of the deposit or purchase price. Should a Winning Bidder fail to complete the contract signing process, the required deposit will be charged to the credit card provided at registration. 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 or prefer to submit a bid in person, please call our office for assistance. 816-781-1134) To place a bid, bidders enter their “maximum” bid and click the “Place Bid” button. Each time that bidder is outbid by another bidder, the system will automatically bid on their behalf at the established bid increments up to their maximum. In the case of an auction with a reserve, if the max bid amount entered is less than the reserve, the system will place the bid at the max amount. Once the system displays that the reserve has been met, then it will advance the bid (by the bid increments) only when the bidder is outbid by another bidder, up to the bidders max. The Auctioneer does not know any bidder’s maximum bid.  The system will not advance a bidder’s own bid. Online-only auctions utilize the “Soft Close” feature that automatically extends the bidding time if a bid is received in the last 2 minutes of the published bidding period. The extensions will continue until 2 minutes have lapsed without any bidding activity, at which time the auction is concluded.


A buyer’s premium of ten percent (10%) of the high bid shall be added to that bid and included in the total purchase price to be paid by the successful bidder(s).

Sample calculation — High bid                      =          $50,000

                                    Buyer’s Premium        =          $  5,000  (10% of 50,000)

                                    Total purchase price    =          $55,000


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.


At the conclusion of the auction the Winning Bidder will receive an email confirming his or her winning bid status. In this or a subsequent email the Winning Bidder will receive a link to sign all documents electronically along with wiring instructions for submitting the required earnest money deposit to the named title company.

The Auctioneer or his representative will contact the Winning Bidder the following morning to address any questions concerning the required process. 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 the day following the auction conclusion. A Winning Bidder whose documents and deposit are not received within the required timeframe 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 Cates Auction & Realty auction events. Note that property-specific purchase documents are available prior to the auction end date and any professional reviews of such documents should be undertaken PRIOR to bidding. All final bids are subject to Seller’s reserve, unless advertised otherwise. Any property with a high bid exceeding the Seller’s reserve will be declared “sold” by the Auctioneer. In instances where the seller’s reserve was not met in the auction, the signed contract and accompanying deposit will be presented to the Seller for approval, which shall be given or denied in the Seller’s sole discretion within 5 business days. If approval is denied, all documents and the deposit will be returned immediately.


The Winning Bidder shall be required to make an earnest money down payment equal to 5% of the total purchase price.  This deposit must be paid by wire transfer (or by certified funds), by close of business the day following the bidder being declared the Winning Bidder. Winning Bidders whose documents and deposit are not received within the required timeframe are 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 Cates Auction & Realty auction events.


The Winning Bidder shall close within 30 days of the auction date, unless stated differently in the Purchase Agreement.


Seller shall furnish at seller’s expense evidence of title insurability. Cost for the purchase of the title insurance policy is the responsibility of the buyer.
