Q. Can buyers receive a refund if they change their minds after making a purchase?
A. USA Land Auctions prides itself on customer satisfaction. All properties are listed for a 7 day period thus allowing the bidder time to perform their research and due diligence prior to the close of bidding. Bidders are encouraged to make all inquiries within that time and not to place a bid unless and until they are confident and comfortable in doing so, understanding as bidders must, that to place a bid is a binding contractual offer. The winning bid means necessarily that the winner has a binding contract to purchase the property for the amount set forth in the bid. This process is greatly different from one where the buyer is high-pressured after a 3 hour sales presentation into saying "yes" and therefore requires a refund period to "cool off." Just the opposite with USA Land Auctions - where there is no pressure to buy, and every opportunity to inform oneself about the property being bid upon. Thus, under these circumstances, refunds cannot be honored unless a problem develops where a property cannot be conveyed to the winning bidder free and clear of financial liens.
