Methods of sale
Our extensive experience enables us to recommend the most appropriate, high-impact method of sale based on the characteristics of your unique property and your specific situation.
We will recommend the method we believe will achieve the highest price, however ultimately, you, the vendor, have the power to choose the method which you feel most suits you.
When selling a property, we have two primary methods of sale choices – private treaty or auction.
The private treaty method is recommended for properties:
• Which are not unique and can be quite easily compared to other recent sales of similar properties in the area
• Where the asking price is clear and can be set as a guide.
• Where marketing budgets are small.
• This is ideal for properties where there is no great time pressure to sell. Successful negotiations will result from establishing an accurate yet fair asking price, attracting genuine buyers. Our extensive experience and in depth data mean we are perfectly equipped to determine an asking price that is both attractive to you and genuinely achievable.
The auction method is recommended for properties:
• Which are likely to encourage competitive bidding between multiple buyers
• Which are unique
• Where it is preferable to let the market determine a price rather than pre- determining it prior to sale
• When it is important to have a set time frame to work with.
This sales technique has long been accepted as an extremely effective method of sale for quality real estate, using open competition to encourage buyers to perform at their best level. Given the many desirable features which your property boasts it is sure to generate spirited bidding from rival buyers, and this scenario generally produces the highest sale price that the market can be induced to pay. This process also allows pre-auction offers to be made, with many sales often resulting from an acceptable early bid.
Selling at an auction
Auctions are highly focused marketing campaigns designed to expose your property to the maximum number of buyers, maximise your sale price and minimise the number of days your property is on the market. Your property is put up for sale on a specified date and this is preceded by a high impact marketing campaign and selected “open days” all of which indicate your commitment to selling.
• Auctions are well established and proven practice for selling real estate
• Potential buyers are in one place at one time with strong desire to purchase on the day
• Competitive bidding means there is no price barrier
• A definite sale made under the hammer, assuming the reserve price is reached
• A set date of sale encourages potential buyers to act quickly
• Auctioneer can often identify the most likely buyer to negotiate with, if not sold on fall of the hammer
• You have the right to set the reserve price, below which the auctioneer is not permitted to sell.
Sale by Tender
The marketing concept is similar to that of an Auction in that it allows for competitive bidding. However, tender bids are made on a confidential basis, respecting the privacy of those bidders.
A potential purchaser must lodge their tender with the agent on a contract form together with a preliminary deposit prior to the closing date of the tender. The seller may accept whichever tender he or she wishes, not necessarily the highest tender. Once the vendor has accepted the tender by signing the contract, neither party may withdraw from the sale.
The disadvantage is that a purchaser may impose conditions with their offer and these conditions could be subject to considerable negotiations prior to a sale being effected.
