The MULTIPAR AUCTION METHOD is used to sell multiple parcels (tracts) of real estate at auction – first offering each tract individually, and then in combination. The final sales price is determined by the combination which realizes the highest bid.

  1. Combination bids allowed after all individual lots have a bid.
  2. For a new bid on a single lot or combination, the overall total must increase by a minimum of $1,000.


  • If a bid is placed in the last 10 minutes, the auction will remain open for an additional 10 minutes.
  • If any further bidding occurs, the extension timer will reset to 10 minutes.
  • If no further bidding occurs, the lots close when the timer runs out.
  • Don’t wait until the end; prices will not go down.
  • Bid only on the lot(s) that you want to own.
  • Any posted bid is considered active and could be back in winning position any time during the auction.
  • Before the auction, determine your auction strategy — what you want to buy and how much you can bid.
  • Consult with Harritt Group staff to help with bidding strategy before or during the auction.
