The multi-parcel auction method is used to sell multiple parcels (tracts) of real estate at auction – first offering each tract individually, and then in various combinations. The final sales price is determined by the combinations which realize the highest bid.

  • Don’t wait until the end; prices will not go down.
  • Bid only on the tracts 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 or math before/during the auction.
