All deposit monies paid will be considered liquidated damages by the Buyer and Seller if the Buyer fails to consummate any part of any purchase. Buyer and Seller understand and agree that Buyers' deposit monies of $500.00 are deemed liquidated damages and shall not constitute a penalty or forfeiture. Buyer and Seller agree that this amount is a reasonable sum given that it is impractical or extremely difficult to establish Seller's actual damages suffered by Seller in the event of Buyer's default. All efforts made by Buyers at charge-backs to recover deposits could constitute fraud and Seller reserves all legal rights to pursue remedies available for such actions. Seller shall also file negative feedback indicating a non-paying bidder if Seller does not receive proper payment for items purchased by Buyer within 10 days after the end of the auction. Be aware that there are NO exceptions to this deposit rule. If you "bid on the wrong parcel" or change your mind… you still bought it! Be prepared to pay or do not bid!

This may include (but not be limited to) suit to compel completion of the sale, and/or criminal charges of fraud or other intentional act.

Because we sell all types of property, to be successful you must inspect the property first-hand. Then if you like what you see, talk to the municipal planning department and any other agency involved with real property (Assessor, Tax-Collector, local utility companies, etc.). Then determine its value and set your own price. Each of these properties is unique in it's own way and the only way to make sure your getting what you want is to thoroughly do your homework before you bid. Inspect, investigate and succeed.

If Buyer does not contact Seller to resolve any dispute before leaving Negative Feedback on eBay, Seller shall leave Buyer Negative Feedback on eBay accordingly.
