ALL BIDS ARE TOTAL PRICE AND NOT PER ACRE.
 
Purchase Agreement and Earnest Money:
The Winning Bidder will receive an “Offer to Buy” document from the Iowa DOT shortly after the conclusion of the auction and will serve as the purchase agreement for the tract being purchased. A 10% earnest money payment is required upon conclusion of the auction and must be received by Peoples Company within two (2) business days from the day of the auction.

Closing and Possession:
Possession will be granted through a “Mutual Benefit Lease” to be signed upon conclusion of the auction by the Winning Bidder for each tract and the Seller.

This lease will terminate once the State Land Patent is received by the Winning Bidder. Balance of purchase price is due and payable on or before the closing date of  Wednesday, May 15th, 2024. If the balance is not paid on or before closing, the Buyer risks forfeiting the 10% earnest money and cancellation of the Mutual Benefit Lease.
