With auction clearance rates at unprecedented levels there is no doubt that the most dominant form of selling is now auction. Whilst private sale is still an option the difficulty with pricing this method in a hot market and the uncertainty of having to wait for cooling off periods to expire means that auctions at the present time are the best form of selling to be able to achieve the optimum sale price.
Added to this are record low levels of quality properties for sale. This shortage of listings is providing more buyers for each property therefore creating healthy competition for an auction campaign.
Couple this with the demand from buyers from Asia looking to move within the school zones of both private and government schools and you have the perfect environment for high prices.
The inner Eastern suburbs are known for benefitting most from a lack of quality listings. At any one time the amount of listings in this area rarely exceeds demand.
With this shortage of stock and increased buyer activity due to record low interest rates, overseas buyers looking to establish themselves in a quality location close to private schools, transport, and amongst quality homes there has never been a better time to be selling.
Our strategy is to maximise your profit by utilising responsible advertising. This does not mean using your advertising dollar as a means to promote our business at the expense of your bottom line. We consult with you to determine what is the best form of advertising that will benefit the property.
We would recommend auctioning the property as the average clearance rate per week is over 70% on the day in the Inner East. Often the results for clients have exceeded ours and their expectations considerably.
Our campaign is structured around a 2 pronged attack.
We commence the campaign by targeting our known buyers to see if there is someone within our database who could be interested in purchasing your home.
These are qualified buyers who we have met from other open for inspections or are registered with us. We know the price range they are looking at spending and the type of property they are looking for.
If during this pre-marketing period a sale has not been concluded we then commence the preparation of advertising and confirm an auction date and commence the advertising.
At all times you as an Owner have the ability to control what is happening and will be kept informed at all times.
As the campaign proceeds to auction, we ensure that we bring as many qualified bidders to your auction as possible. Meaning that as Vendor focussed agents it is our belief that the campaign once commenced should follow through to auction.
In over 25 years of auctioning properties I can honestly say that I have only ever sold less than 1% before auction once the marketing has commenced. My success rate on the day of auction is over 90% on the day. This is a skill that has been honed by over 20 years experience as an Auctioneer.
Finally as a Director of the business I give my guarantee that will be personally involved in the sale of your property from the start of the campaign right through to placing a SOLD sticker on the board at the conclusion.)

Brett Philipp was recommended to me by a property agent as a person well equipped to sell my property in Burwood.
From my first contact with Brett he was professional and personable. He answered all of my questions along the way and handled each step of the sale in such a way that kept me completely in the loop. I achieved a result beyond that which I had expected and it was all done very efficiently and in a surprisingly short time frame. I have sold property previously, but this was the smoothest sale I can remember.
I have no hesitation in recommending Brett and his name has been passed along to family members who may be selling property in the near future.
We just wanted to write to say thank you for your professionalism in finding us tenants for our rental property in Surrey Hills when our previous agent failed over 7 weeks to deliver as they promised.
Joe & Rose / Surrey Hills
Your ability to find a tenant within 4 weeks was supported by your constant communication by always following up with a phone call after each inspection and keeping us updated each step of the way.
This was not something our previous agent was doing and it was a great relief knowing all along what was happening with our property.
We would highly recommend you to any prospective landlord as we appreciated all your hard work, commitment and advice in finding us suitable tenants for our apartment.
Many thanks again for all you hard work and efforts.

I am more than pleased to recommend Harcourts Select and in particular Brett Philipp, as a reputable and reliable Real Estate Agent.
Brett handled the delicate sale of my Parents deceased estate.
From our initial meeting to the day of auction, Brett did not deviate from our agreement, and in particular carried out the entire campaign pre sale as agreed and was always pleasant prompt and informative.
He also was entrusted in dealing with other family members and always carried himself in a professional manner.
Brett also carried out the auction and again I believe he was professional dealing with myself and my family and also the public who attended the auction.
Brett achieved a great result for our family and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is considering selling or require any advice in matters of real estate.
