ACREAGE: All acreages listed are estimates taken from the county assessor’s records, FSA records and/or aerial photos.
SURVEY: Sellers reserve the right to determine the need for a survey and the type of survey provided.

If a survey is completed, the purchase price for the surveyed tract will be adjusted, up or down, to the exact surveyed acres. The price per acre will be the auction price bid for the tract, divided by the tract acreage estimated in the auction brochure.
