Methods of Sale


Your property is placed on the market at a set price or alternatively a price range. When a prospective purchaser shows interest in your property our sales consultant will then negotiate on your behalf to ensure the best price, conditions and terms of the sale are achieved.


When your property is offered for Tender it is advertised with or without a buyers price guide with all offers presented on or before a certain date (eg: Friday 30th June at 5pm). When an offer has been tendered that you are willing to accept, all other buyers are then notified and are invited to alter the offer they have tendered. This method of sale has potentially the same competition factor as an auction but in a more private and controlled atmosphere.


There are arguments for and against Auctions, however the bottom line is that there is no doubt whatsoever that this is the most clear cut way of maximising the price and unconditional terms and conditions of the sale of your property. Auctions “make it happen” with each bidder competing for the one property resulting in the property being sold to the highest bidder – (subject to a reserve price)


What is most important to remember is that it is your decision and your decision alone as to how your property is to be marketed. Whichever way you choose, rest assured that everyone at De Freitas & Ryan is focused on achieving the highest possible price in the shortest possible selling time.

Should you have any further questions about any of these selling methods, a De Freitas & Ryan Sales Consultant would be only too happy to answer any questions.
