All Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. Online Only Real Estate Auctions are timed events that have an auto-extend feature. This auction is an “extend one, extend all” auction. Any bid placed within 5 minutes of an auction’s end will automatically extend the entire auction for 5 minutes from the time the bid is placed. The auto-extend feature remains active until no further bids are received on any lot within the 5-minute extended time frame.
Bidding increments are as follows:
$0 - $200 = $5
$200 - $1000 = $25
$1,000 - $10,000 = $100
$10,000 - $25,000 = $500
$25,000 - $500,000 = $1,000
$500,000 - $1,000,000 = $5,000
$1,000,000 and up = $10,000
All items sold AS IS, WHERE IS with all faults and without warranty expressed or implied. Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. is not responsible for any missing or incorrect listing information. We have attempted to provide accurate descriptions. However, it is the bidder's responsibility to conduct any inspections to determine the condition and feasibility of the bidder’s intended use. Descriptions that are provided by the auction company are provided in good faith and are matters of opinion. It is automatically acknowledged by registering that you have either personally inspected the items being sold, hired an agent to inspect the items being sold or waive your right to inspect the items being sold. By placing a bid, this creates a contractual agreement to purchase the items being sold at the high bid price plus Buyers Premium and any additional fees.
Sale on all items is subject to seller approval. Auction company reserves the right to confirm the sale with the seller, and bid on behalf of the seller, if necessary. Items may have reserves that may or may not be noted.
Items must be removed at load out unless other arrangements have been made. If you do not come to the load out, we reserve the right to charge your credit card for the high bid price, plus buyer premium and any other fees associated with the item.
The successful bidder not attempting to settle their invoice after the conclusion of the auction will be considered in default and will be black flagged in our database. Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. reserves the right to sell to the next highest qualified bidder in the event the successful high bidder does not comply with the terms of the sale. By bidding on the items in the auction, the buyer agrees to all terms and conditions set forth. By registering and placing a bid you agree that if you happen to become a default bidder, Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. has the right to charge your credit card for the entire balance of your invoice, plus any and all costs incurred by the seller and Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. in a subsequent resell of the item(s). If Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. is able to sell your item to the next highest qualified bidder at a price lower than the auction high bid price, the default bidder agrees to allow Sheridan Realty & Auction Co. to charge their credit card for the difference in their high bid price and the actual selling price to the backup bidder.

We are not responsible for the failure of any part of the bidding process or internet bidding.
If you are bidding against someone who has placed a max bid in the system, the max bid that is placed first will take precedence over a bid placed after. This means that the person who placed the bid first will have the high bid, in the event that the same bid is placed.
