Tender or Expression of Interest
- The advantages of selling by auction are numerous. You set the terms, conditions and deadline. You decide on an undisclosed minimum reserve price from which you will not be required to negotiate downwards. There's also the very real possibility of achieving a higher price, especially if keen buyer interest promotes competition. You will also attract only genuinely interested, cash-in-hand buyers with no subject to sale or subject to finance uncertainty. There is always the opportunity to accept offers prior to auction day.
A positive statistical sales rate together with property being on the market for such a short time have many regarding auctions as the most successful 'non-price' method of selling. Auction marketing motivates genuine buyers to act. It's also the least disruptive and intrusive method because you only need open your home at times which suit you best.
- 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.
You have the opportunity to accept, decline or continue negotiations with any interested party. It's your choice. You're in control.
