At First National Bennetts we understand that there is a lot more to selling your home than simply placing a ’For Sale’ sign in front of your property. Below you will see the two major marketing strategies we use in the sale of property i.e. sale by Exclusive Agency or Public Auction . Depending on the type of home or property we are selling, we tailor make a package to suit your individual needs.
Sale by Exclusive Agency
Your property would be placed in our hands as exclusive agents for the agreed period of time. As your exclusive agent we are committed to actively marketing the property for sale.
Under this arrangement the property will be promoted to the market either with or without a predetermined asking price. The terms of the final contract can be changed as a consequence of negotiations with the buyer.
Some consider this method suitable if they are not in a hurry to sell and are prepared to wait until the right buyer comes along.
•Placing a price on your home guarantees that the amount set will be the maximum price you will be likely to achieve. People often offer less, but rarely more!
•This often leads to vendors over pricing their home, which itself eventually has a negative effect upon the price achieved.
•As a result of the unlimited time frame, there is little urgency placed upon potential purchasers to buy your property.
•Their own personal needs and the general market conditions are the only two things placing pressure on the buyers.
Sale by Public Auction
The sale of property by auction is widely recognised as the most effective and successful method of achieving a premium price for your property in the shortest possible time. This is achieved by the following;
•Your property will be marketed without a price thus eliminating the possibility of underselling or the negative impact of it being overpriced.
•An Auction Advertising program is an impressive demonstration of your commitment to sell, with a targeted marketing campaign intended to saturate specific buyers in the market.
•Motivated purchasers like to know that they are dealing with a motivated vendor.
•The unconditional contract of sale will be on your terms and conditions.
