The auction

• An online auction for the Pheasant Run Resort at 4051 E. Main St. will run Monday through Wednesday.


• Bids start at $2 million, with a $25,000 participation deposit.

• The auction is facilitated through the Ten-X Commercial real estate website, which lists and markets properties nationwide.

• With a live bid format, potential buyers must find properties ahead of time, conduct their due diligence and register to make offers. Buyers must be approved before submitting bids.

• Sellers are able to review all activity and interest in their property.

• A countdown allows all parties to see how much time remains for incoming bids.

• Once the clock hits zero, the property is sold to the highest bidder who meets the reserve price, which is the minimum a seller will accept. The starting bid is not the reserve price.
