Method of sale

Auction

Selling by auction is the preferred option for many. This is because your property is generally on the market for a shorter time, and has the highest sales rate. An intensive, high profile auction marketing programme attracts genuinely interested, cash in hand buyers.

These buyers are focused on the maximum price they’ll pay, not how low their offer should be. Combined with the excitement of the big day it’s this natural level of competition that helps establish the highest possible price on the day. We’ll assist you in setting the terms, conditions and auction day deadline. Also, the property needs to be only opened for buyer viewing at times that best suit you, so the auction process is regarded as the least disruptive method of selling.

Tender

This method of marketing creates a high profile for your property and establishes a competitive environment without having to list a price. You also set the terms, conditions and deadline. Prospective buyers become emotionally involved before they consider price and have only one opportunity to put forward their most competitive bid.

Priced

When considering marketing your property with a set price it is extremely important to determine the right figure from the start. Market facts are used to properly gauge this figure. Over-priced properties take longer to sell and do not attract the optimum number of potential buyers, particularly during the prime selling period. The price will often drop considerably without the competition between these buyers.

Price By Negotiation

By using sale by negotiation you can both maximise buyer interest and also ensure a high sale price for your home. The buyer is also focused more on the property and less on the price. This is a great way to gain feedback from the market before settling on a price you’re happy with.

Deadline Sale/Private Treaty

What is a deadline private treaty?

A deadline sale or deadline private treaty is similar to the tender process. A property is offered for sale with no fixed price. Prospective purchasers are required to submit their offers by a specified date. Unlike the tender process, vendors usually reserve the right to accept an offer and sell prior to the deadline.

On the fixed date all offers are considered together by the vendor, they are not committed to selling but the expectation is that the best offer will either be accepted or that negotiations will take place between the person or persons making the best offer or offers.
