The following is a brief overview of both methods of sale;

Auction:       Auction is commonly seen as the most pro-active form of property marketing available.   Auction sales give you the vendor the opportunity of selling your property at a level in excess of market value due to the competition, urgency and excitement created during the campaign.   The Auction method of sale sources genuine qualified buyers quicker and gets better sales prices as a result.

  5. Safety of an Undisclosed Reserve Price

Private Treaty:       Private Treaty is the most common method of sale in the market place and most vendors and buyers are familiar with this method of sale.   This method of sale allows for a negotiation between the buyer and the vendor away from the public arena.

These sales allow for the buyer to have a cooling off period and to enter into contracts with conditions such as approval of finance, subject to building inspections and pest inspections.     Properties marketed with this sales strategy commonly are advertised with a singular price.
