SALE METHOD: Buyers’ Choice by the Acre.

How ‘Buyers Choice by the Acre’ works:

  • Buyer’s choice may be offered when more than one property/parcel is being auctioned.
  • Successful high bidder wins the right to choose a property/parcel or properties/parcels from a grouping of similar or like-kind properties.
  • After high bidder selection, the property is deleted from the group and the bidding commences again.
  • Process continues until all properties/parcels are selected.
  • When selling by the acre, high bid is multiplied by the number of acres in the parcel.
