All announcements made at the auction take precedence over any other information or printed matter. Neither the auction company nor the seller makes or has made any representation or warranty with respect to the accuracy, correctness, or completeness of the information, the contents or meaning of the information, or the valuation of the real estate and shall not be held liable. Any decision to purchase or not to purchase the real estate is the sole and independent business decision of the potential buyer. No recourse or cause of action will lie against any of the above-mentioned parties should buyer become dissatisfied with its decision, whatever it may be, at a later date. 



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


Buyers must close within 30 days of the auction date. Time is of the essence. The entire purchase price must be paid by cashiers or certified check, or wired funds at closing. Upon payment in full of the purchase price, the buyer shall be entitled to a general warranty deed for said property.


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. 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.  For Saturday, Sunday, or Monday auctions, the form must be received in our office, no later than 12:00 Noon on Friday prior to the auction date.  If a legal entity is the Client, the principals must be disclosed.  



The Auctioneer is acting as agent on behalf of the seller only. During bidding, the Auctioneer has the right to reject any raise that, in his opinion, is not commensurate with the value of the offering. 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.
