Buyer payment is due immediately upon receipt of invoice and all property must be paid for and removed from the Rago Arts & Auction Center within 14 business days of the auction. If you have a question about your invoice, please call us immediately. We will explain or correct immediately if there is a problem.
How To Read Our Invoice
Final Sale Price: The amount of your successful bid.
Buyer’s Premium: The buyer’s premium is 25% on the first $75,000 of the hammer price, 20% on the portion from $75,001 through $1,500,000, and 12% on that portion of the hammer price exceeding $1,500,000. (CASH DISCOUNT: A cash discount of 3% off the 25% buyer’s premium will be applied for property purchased by cash, check, wire transfer or money order if payment is received within 15 days of sale. This effectively lowers the 25% buyer’s premium to 22%. No discount will be taken off the lower buyer’s premium apportioned for lots that sell at $75,001 and above. On Live Auctioneers, buyer’s premium in the amount of 28% of the successful high bid will be levied. A cash discount of 3% off the 28% buyer’s premium will be applied for property purchased by cash, check, wire transfer or money order if payment is received within 15 days of sale. This effectively lowers the 28% buyer’s premium to 25%. No discount will be taken off the lower buyer’s premium apportioned for lots that sell at $75,001 and above.
