Buying at Auction

Why Buy at Auction?

OUR MISSION

MAKING BUYING A HOME EASY AND TRANSPARENT.

Buying a home through the auction process, let alone buying a home period, may scare you a bit. At Harcourts Auctions, we are committed to providing you with as much information as possible to ensure you are comfortable every step of the way.
STEP #1 
KNOW THE TERMS 
Familiarize yourself with the Terms and Conditions of sale before you bid. Terms and Conditions vary slightly for each property.
STEP #2 
VISIT THE PROPERTY 
Make sure the property is right for you. Get to know it. Drive through the neighborhood at different times of day. Your Brady & Co. agent will hold open houses throughout the campaign. These are perfect opportunities for you to visit and receive all the information you need.
STEP #3 
DO YOUR RESEARCH 
Standard auction Terms of Sale are not subject to any contingencies, and are sold on an “as is” basis. Brady & Co. will make comprehensive property information and disclosures available; however, you’re required to complete your own due diligence and be able to close escrow within 30 days after the auction.
STEP #4 
ARRANGE THE DEPOSIT 
Deposit terms vary from property to property; therefore, see the auction terms and conditions, as the deposit will often be required to be paid on the day of the auction or before.
STEP #5 
REGISTER TO BID 
Most importantly, don’t forget to register. You can obtain all paperwork from the listing agent prior to auction. You can even register someone else to bid on your behalf if you aren’t able to make it to auction day. Normally registration must be completed and submitted before close of business, the business day prior to auction day.
