ACREAGE: The acreage of the Property listed in this brochure is an estimate taken from the county assessor’s records, FSA records and/or aerial photos. The total acreage included within the Property will be determined by the survey.
SURVEY: The Seller reserves the right to determine the need for and type of survey provided, if any.

If a new survey is completed, the purchase price 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.
