Raine and Horne Gladstone offers over 30 years in business in the Gladstone Region, ensuring we offer unrivalled local knowledge and experience.
When it comes to our values and office culture, we operate like a big family with an ethos based on integrity, empathy and compassion. This ethic has created a sense of belonging and caring, which transpires into staff satisfaction that helps us achieve better results for our clients. Our values set us apart from the competitors.
Currently our office command in excess of 20% market share for the past quarter.
We recommend that the property be sold by the way of PRIVATE TREATY, for the following REASONS:
In our declining market there has been a poor response to the auction process of late, with many people not attending open houses until the property is marketed with a price;
Buyers are astute, are well researched and are aggressively looking for property based on price;
Many buyers are not in a position to pay an up-front 10% deposit as dictated by auction terms;
In the current market very few properties are being sold on the floor at auction;
It is not uncommon to see very poor attendance at open homes during the auction process. Attendance increases markedly once the property is marketed with a price, again as a market is currently very price driven and ‘nearing the bottom of the property cycle’ (source Herron Todd White Valuers).
However we are happy to discuss all options that may achieve the best results for you and your property.
To whom it may concern,
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.
