When you need to sell by will be a significant factor in this decision plus who is impacted by the sale and how everyone is feeling about the move. Methods of sale that involve a quick but intense marketing period with structured buyer viewing opportunities can often be the less disruptive choice.

Methods of Sale


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.




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.




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.
