By creating your account, you agree to accept AND you understand the Terms and Conditions of the auction process and the bidding platform.

In addition, you must either provide Proof of Funds if paying in cash OR a FULL PreApproval from A Canadian Mortgage Lender prior to getting access to the bidding area. Registration and documents must be received NO LATER than 12:00 pm MST the day of the auction.

If you are not registered and/or you have not provided suitable documentation by NOON on the day of the auction, you will NOT be allowed to bid on a property!

We also STRONGLY encourage you or your agent to login to your account prior to the end of the bidding time on the property you wish to bid on. It is IMPORTANT to understand the steps and functionality needed to place your bid.  Technical or agent support will not be available after 12:00 pm on the final day of the auction.

Upon acceptance to our online bidding platform, you will receive access to bid/offer on properties that meet your criteria.

Working with a licensed Real Estate Agent is required. Upon winning the bid, a signed Alberta Real Estate Association (AREA) Residential Purchase Contract prepared by an Alberta-licensed Agent must be submitted within 24 hours after the winning bid along with the deposit funds in the form of a bank draft to the Listing Brokerage (EXP REALTY) to be deposited in trust.

A licensed Real Estate Agent must prepare those documents and initiate the process. If you do not have an agent, we can provide one for you.

If you have an Agent, the registration page will provide you with the option of entering your agent’s contact information. Our agents will contact them and review the auction procedures. Or, you will have the option to have one of our Agent’s contact you.

Our agents are experts in this process and can guide you through the entire auction process from beginning to end and answer all of your questions. They can also explain the financial benefits of working with us.

Property will be available for viewing only on the day(s) of the open house (unless agreed otherwise).

Buyers must be approved for bidding manually by the seller or seller’s agent.

Sellers reserve the right to accept, negotiate, or reject the highest bid.

An online auction is a binding agreement and a seller can legally pursue a non-performing bidder.

Be sure to contact us if you have question on the auction process.

Terms You Should Know:

Bidding Auto Extend – Our system Prevents Last Second Bidding by Automatically Extending the Bidding Time.

If a bidder places a bid within 5 minutes of the end of the bidding time, the system will automatically extend the bidding time by 10 minutes in order to allow other bidders the opportunity to respond.

Attention Winning Bidders

If You Are The Winning Bidder: Please have your agent submit a signed purchase agreement to the seller within the time specified in “sale terms and conditions” (please see the posting details). If you do not have an agent, please Contact Us.

Notice to Winning Bidder: Important – If you are the winning bidder at the end of the auction and back out without submitting a contract, you will have been considered breaching our terms of use of our bidding submission system and you may be liable for a $500 withdrawal penalty fee.  We will invoice you for that amount.
