Do Your Homework
Find out as much as you can about the Item/property. Looking in the information section of all Furlo Auction Service advertising will help you retrieve pertinent property information.

Inspect the Property
Take full advantage of any inspections conducted by Furlo Auction Service This will allow you, or your representative, to see first hand what you are bidding on and help determine value and desirability. And, allow you to bid with confidence.

Pre-qualify Yourself
Increase your comfort level by knowing your mortgage qualifications. Even before you decide on a item/property to buy, you should pre-qualify through your banker. There is never a mortgage contingency on any item or real estate in an auction. It is best to know you can pay for the property before you bid. Now you'll be able to bid with confidence!

Attend a Local Auction

Plan Your Bid Strategy
Determine your bid limit after examination of the property and all available information. Don't be afraid to bid early. Most other bidders will be willing to pay just as much as you. The one who bids that number first, will win that day.

Register to Bid
On auction day, it is to your advantage to arrive at the auction site 1-2 hours before the auction. By doing so, you will have more time to consult with on-site staff who are prepared to assist you with your last minute questions regarding the property and the auction process. Upon completion of registration you will receive a Bid Packet containing your bid number, Terms of Sale, Purchase and Sale Agreement.

Bring Required Deposit
If you are the successful high bidder at an  real estate auction, you will be required to affirm your bid with a signature and deposit. All deposits must be in earnest money form, i.e. cash, certified or bank check or pre-approved personal check. Deposit requirements and amounts are clearly listed in the "TERMS" section of all Furlo Auction Service advertising.

Prepare for "Q & A"
Prior to the start of bidding, our auctioneers conduct a question and answer period. This is an opportunity for registered bidders to ask any last minute questions before the auction begins.

Bid Aggressively
.....until you have won or reached your limit. There can be only one winning bidder for the property. You cannot BUY at your price unless you BID your price. GOOD LUCK!
