Currently our office command in excess of 20% market share for the past quarter.
We recommend that your property be sold by the way of AUCTION, which offers the following advantages:
Best price: Competitive bidding may achieve a sale price in excess of the reserve. Highest chance of a successful sale: Research shows that over 87% of homes sell within the agency period. Immediate exchange of contracts: When a buyer purchases at auction, the contract is signed unconditionally and 10% deposit (or nominated amount) is payable. Buyers know they are in a competitive situation: There is pressure on buyers to make a good pre-auction offer rather than miss out on the day. Intensive promotional campaign: It is designed to highlight the property to attract the maximum numbers of buyers. Less disruption to family: With a shorter selling period, auctions can be more convenient. Reserve price: The property cannot be sold below the reserve price without the approval of the vendor. No cooling-off period: The contract cannot be rescinded by the purchaser. Specified auction date: Creates a sense of urgency.
Whilst this may not the vendors preferred method of sale we would be pleased to offer the property to the market via private treaty.

I have known Mark Patton, principal of Raine & Horne Gladstone, for over 9 years. In that time I have had the pleasure of working closely with him on sporting club committee’s overseeing major infrastructure upgrades along with other business transactions. In all these endeavours I have found Mr Patton to be of good character and have no hesitation recommending him to colleagues.
