Online/Live Auctions

Pavlis Auction & Realty requires that you read, understand, accept, and comply with the following terms and conditions in order to bid in an online auction hosted by us.

Benefit of Live vs. Online Bidding and Bidder Eligibility: Pavlis Auction & Realty will do the best we can to make the bidding process and information given fair for both online and live bidders alike. While we are offering the online bidding option as a convenience for buyers, we highly recommend that you attend the auction on-site to bid in the traditional manner. By being on-site, not only will you get to share in the excitement of auction day, you will also get to see all items in person, which is the best assurance that you know what you are bidding on. Only a select number of items will appear online for bidders, with a much more extensive inventory at live auction. Bidders must be at least 18 years of age and able to form legally binding contracts under applicable law.

Use of Proxy Bidding for Online/Live Auction Format: Online/Live auctions will be treated in much the same manner as our traditional auction format, where live bidders that are on-site will be given the opportunity to bid against online bidders. If you are not able to be on-site at the time of the auction, we recommend placing your highest max bid online. Our staff will be in direct communication with the auctioneer, bidding online for the on-site bidders. When the auctioneer announces an item has been sold, the online auction will end, regardless of time remaining in the online listing. In the case of two bidders placing the same maximum bid, the bid first received will be deemed the leading bid.

Payment Terms: If you are a winning bidder or purchase a fixed-price item, you agree to pay Pavlis Auction & Realty (who is hired on behalf of the seller) the full amount of your winning bid (for biddable items) or the sale price (for fixed-price items), plus a Buyer’s Fee and shipping or delivery charges if applicable. (5% Buyer’s Fee will be charged, with no additional charge for use of credit cards.) You agree to honor the requirements listed on the item regarding method and time of payment. In regards to government regulations and taxes, you are responsible for compliance with any federal, state or local tax laws governing your purchase. It is your responsibility to report and pay any applicable taxes. We suggest you consult a professional tax adviser.

All Bids Are Final, and Your Bid or Purchase is a Contract. When you bid online, you are placing a maximum bid. The selling price will only increase as others bid against you, whether online or live. Remember that we are not able to make changes to your bid if you later choose to go to the auction in person, so make sure that you are not bidding against yourself if you have placed a maximum online bid. Once you have placed and confirmed a bid, your bid can not be retracted. All purchases are final, and items sold are “as is, where is.” Pick-up is the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise noted. When you place a bid on an online auction item, you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller if you are the winning bidder. You are the winning bidder if your bid is the highest bid at Auction Close and your bid is accepted by the seller. When you purchase a fixed-price item, you enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller.

Auction Changes: While we will do everything that we can to represent the items through photos and descriptions, Pavlis Auction & Realty reserves the right to add or remove items from the online auction at any time without notice, as well as the right to add new details in the description discovered after posting the item.

Acceptance of Terms of Service: By registering and bidding on an item on, you are agreeing to the above terms and conditions.
