Our Marketing Process

Methods of Sale

Selling by Private Treaty

Selling your apartment by Private Treaty simply means marketing your property with a price attached. As such, you are attracting the right buyers with the right budget to view your property.

It is an invitation to prospective buyers to make an offer. Whether or not you accept the offer is entirely your decision. As your agent we will ensure that all offers are negotiated to their maximum in order to attain the best price. As the vendor, you will find that this is a more flexible method of selling as opposed to deadline marketing (auction). You can negotiate price, inclusions, length of settlement and the conditions of the sale.

Selling by Auction

An auction is when prospective buyers gather to bid on your property. The highest bidder at the end of the auction becomes the successful buyer, provided the bid matches or exceeds your reserve price.
An auction involves a three-pronged marketing push, as the vendor has the opportunity to sell their property before auction, on the day of auction, or in the event the property is passed in, directly after auction. Pros of Auction Campaign:
  • Creates a sense of urgency; buyers have a definite time frame in which they must act
  • Encourages competitive bidding, which means there is no price barrier
  • There is no cooling-off period for the buyers
  • The successful bidder must sign the sale contract and pay you a deposit on the spot (usually 10%)

Expressing our gratitude for Joseph's hard work selling our property. Despite sluggish market conditions and a few obstacles, Joe and his team never gave up and got a great result in the end. Worth a mention are Joes' excellent communication and negotiating skills. We also have a few properties managed by the team and I can highly recommend both the sales and property management expertise of Metro Realty.

Having attempted to buy a few times recently, this is definitely the least complex and most seamless experience I have had. Joseph was honest and I felt well informed during my purchase.
