The Multi-Parcel Auction Process with Legacy Land Auctions

Feb 18, 2016

Multi-parcel (multi-par) auctions divide properties into multiple tracts, expanding the number of purchasing options. As a bidder, you should arrive on auction day with full knowledge of the property and ready to buy. And with the multi-par process, you can buy on your terms. Bid on one tract, bid on a few, or bid on them all!

We want you to feel comfortable with the auction process and are always available to answer any questions you may have.  A multi-parcel auction does not move quite like a traditional auction in which you may have participated.  But once you understand the mechanics of the process, there is no other way to buy property that puts a bidder in the driver’s seat quite like a multi-parcel auction.
