Selling your home can be a time consuming and stressful process. There’s a lot to consider – should you buy or sell first? When is the best time to sell? How do you choose a sales consultant? What’s the best way to market and sell your property? And those are only a few of the major considerations!
We want to make sure that you’re well informed of the whole selling process and know exactly what to expect every step of the way. The Landmark Harcourts Property Sellers Guide will cover everything you need to know from start to finish.

WE’LL HELP YOU CHOOSE THE METHOD OF SALE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU.
1. Sale by auction
Auctions are an effective way of creating a sense of urgency and a call-to-action amongst buyers, because an auction date forces the buyer to make a decision.
• Competitive bidding can push up the price because the sale price is determined by what the market is prepared to pay.
• Your property will be sold without conditions set by the purchaser. As the vendor, you set the terms of the sale.
• Remember, you can always sell prior to auction if the price you’ve settled on is met.
2. Sale by private treaty
When you sell by private treaty, the timing of the sale is open and as the vendor, you set the sale price.
• This gives you greater privacy throughout the sale process.
• Marketing costs are tailored to suit you and you are not locked into a predetermined date of sale.
3. Sale by tender or expressions of interest
As the vendor, you set the date and time for all tenders to be submitted - by setting this deadline, you force a decision.
• With only one closed bid permitted per buyer, you encourage higher offers.
• Discretion and confidentiality are maintained because you decide which offer to accept, while avoiding the emotion generated at an auction.
