The purchase and sale of real estate is a complicated matter that is governed by laws, practices and customs that vary significantly from locality to locality. Agents are advised that many jurisdictions require that you provide a disclosure statement to all prospective buyers regarding the condition of the property. In addition, under U.S. federal law, sellers have an obligation to disclose information on lead-based paint hazards. Members are strongly advised to seek the help of a licensed real estate professional and/or a real estate attorney to help in the negotiation and sale of any real estate.
Each Agent is responsible for maintaining complete and accurate information on the properties that he or she lists for bidding. It is recommended that any agent placing a property for auction on the REI Auctions Web Site should have an auction pricing addendum agreed upon and signed by the owner(s) of the property. The pricing addendum should state "I agree to have my agent place this property up for competitive bidding online and I agree that I will accept any bid at or above my reserve price of $(price)." The pricing addendum protects the agent from owner(s) increasing his or her targeted reserve price after the auction bidding begins.
Each Agent shall maintain control over his or her property listings and shall encourage each potential buyer that he or she comes in contact with to place their bids through the website.
Agent and Seller agree that they will not bid on or artificially influence bidding on properties they have posted for auction on the REI Auctions Web Site. If an Agent or Seller is found to be bidding on or attempting to influence bidding on properties he or she has posted on the REI Auctions Web Site, any and all existing Agent privileges shall be revoked and the property may be removed from the site.
Each Agent who lists a property on the REI Auctions Web Site agrees to act with honesty and integrity. Each Agent agrees to deal honestly, fairly and courteously with all Bidders provided by REI Auctions. Rude or arrogant behavior in dealings with Bidders shall be grounds for REI Auctions to revoke an Agent's right to list and sell properties on this site.
Each Agent agrees that he or she shall leave a posted property on the site for the Duration of the event as selected by the Agent.
Any property can be removed from the site at any time prior to or during the event time frame unless it has received active bids. If there are active bids on a property, the property cannot be removed without prior approval from REI Auctions.
Each Agent shall indicate the amount of commission, if any, to be paid to a Buyer Agent for each of its properties. Agents using an MLS or other public listing system agree to update this information if the fees offered on the REI Auctions Web Site differ from those listed elsewhere.
The management of REI Auctions reserves the right to reject any seller or any property in its sole and absolute discretion.
Each Agent understands that REI Auctions is a marketing vehicle only and that there is no agency relationship between REI Auctions and the Agent.
Each Agent agrees to release and hold harmless REI Auctions from any claims that may arise from the Agent's actions related to any transaction resulting from a listing on the site.
REI Auctions gives no warranties as to its abilities to obtain a bid or an acceptable price for a property, or about the financial capabilities of prospective buyers.
No brokerage relationship or any agency or fiduciary relationship is intended to be or shall be deemed to have been created between sellers creating their own listings and REI Auctions. REI Auctions makes no representations about properties advertised on its site, about the sellers of such properties, or about the accuracy of information provided by such sellers, or the accuracy of Internet mapping services. Bidder agrees to release and hold harmless REI Auctions from any claims that may arise from the Seller's actions related to any transaction on REIAuctions.com

Depending on the property, sellers may be required to deliver to buyers a disclosure statement prior to a sale, and in all cases buyers should conduct their own due diligence related to property inspection, title review, building code compliance, termite inspection, flood plain, hazardous materials and other local issues transparent only to an expert. Property Bidding

Each bidder shall review and agree to the Terms of Sale for each individual property listed on the site before placing a bid. REI Auctions may suspend your account, and seek legal remedies, if it at anytime suspects that either as a buyer or seller, you have committed or engaged in fraud or fraudulent activities relating to listings on the site.
