Methods of sale


The benefits of sale by this process are:
  • The best possible price can be obtained through open buyer competition
  • The time frame and sense of urgency gives the buyer a focus and an incentive to perform
  • Price will not be an objection and therefore we can establish a buyer’s need to own your property


Tender or Deadline Treaty

The benefits of sale by this process are:

  • A Tender allows the vendor to deal with the preferred party
  • It sets a specific timeframe (usually over a 4-5 week period) which allows purchasers time to carry out their due diligence and then make a formal offer
  • It provides the flexibility for the vendor to countersign the preferred offer
  • It also encourages tenderers to complete due diligence and have finance in place, reducing the time delay between acceptance and settlement
  • The tender process requires purchasers to submit on the vendor's pre-determined terms and conditions


Expression of Interest

The benefits of sale by this process are:

  • This method of sale requires parties to register their interest in the property within a certain period of time
  • There is no price set so price is not an objection
  • Vendor may choose who they negotiate with
  • Invites conditional and unconditional offers
  • Most commonly used where there are multiple possibilities for the sale or lease of the property


Private Treaty
The benefits of sale by this process are:

  • An asking price is placed on the property
  • Purchasers can make conditional offers on the property at any time during the marketing campaign
  • Encourages both conditional and unconditional offers
  • Benefit to purchasers as they are aware of the vendors expectations
  • No time pressure on vendors or purchasers
