Q. What is the Best Way to Sell Your House?

A. There are 9 Different Types of Sale…

The most common method of sale is by a private treaty which accounts for around 70-90% of real estate transactions.

Others are an auction, set sale, tender, expressions of interest, price on application and a low-key sale. Private sale has a better alternative called the partner program.

Private Treaty # 1
A sale by private treaty means you offer the property to the market at a listed price or a price range and invite offers from interested purchasers. This way you have the ability to vary the price whilst it is on the market and you will also have the opportunity to consider each individual offer from potential purchasers.

In South Australia, you can offer a single fixed asking price, a price range of up to 10% or no price given. Other variables or different wording such as Offers from $, Offers Over $, are no longer allowed.

You can accept cash unconditional offers, subject to finance and/ or sale conditions or additionally acceptable contingencies.

Auction # 2
You set a reserve price with your agent (the minimum price you will sell your property for) and the agent prepares for the auction on the specified date and time. There are laws for conducting an auction, so it is best left to an experienced auctioneer on the day. If bids don’t reach your reserve price, your agent may negotiate with the highest bidder on your behalf.

Auctions can induce a sense of urgency and strong competition amongst buyers, however, the stress of an auction can also put some buyers off.

Only buyers who have unconditional offers as cash or pre-arranged finance can register and bid. Those who need to sell and/ or require subject-to-finance or other conditions cannot bid.

Those who need to sell their property to buy yours and/ or require subject-to-finance or other conditions cannot bid.

There is no cooling-off period.

Set Sale # 3
Combines private treaty, price range selling with the intensity of an auction campaign and allows subject-to-conditions into the mix.

As the name suggests a date 25 days after the marketing begins is the targeted endpoint or deadline to have all offers and registrations of interest presented for the seller’s consideration.

If the vendor receives an acceptable offer at any time during the marketing campaign, all registered buyers are contacted. They have 24 hours to the close of business the following day to submit their best and final offer.

An additional advantage is that unlike auction, your price is never publicly disclosed. Any offers are not disclosed to other buyers.

Here are some more specific details on how the set sale works.

Tender # 4
A tender is a formal sale process often used for commercial & industrial properties. Though seldom used in residential sales. It requires potential buyers to submit a proposal in response to the request to the owner’s advertised tender.

There is usually a time limit imposed when the purchasers highest & best offer must be made. There is usually no further negotiation.

Expressions Of Interest # 5
An expression of interest is similar to a private treaty sale, however, a formal written offer must be submitted for the property usually by a specific date. This process is also seldom used for residential.

A variation is where no price is given and buyers are encouraged to make offers. Unlike an auction, it is less stressful and allows for subject-to-conditions being made.

It can especially suit unusual property or where there a few comparable sales. It certainly has a place to be used for residential properties in these circumstances.

Price On Application # 6 – (POA) – A property listed with a sale price of “POA” means buyers will need to contact the agent to receive pricing details. This is not often recommended as it annoys purchasers and many simply won’t call. It reduces the number of interested buyers significantly.

Low-Key Sale # 7
Although a competitive marketing and sales process is normally the best way to achieve the highest price for your property. Sometimes, there are good reasons to sell your home without opening it up to the market. You can read the Low-Key Sale Blog Here.

Private Sale? # 8

A. In this case, it means private sale as in ‘for sale by owner’.

Sellers often mistakenly believe they’ll save the agents fee. That’s exactly what the buyers think too. So no-one really wins here. I know many investors and professional buyers who target private sellers because they usually buy the property for much less than it’s worth. There’s often little negotiation plus an agent is not there to protect the seller if things take a turn for the worse with potential buyers.

Here’s something you may like to know:

As founder and CEO of ForSaleByOwner.com, Colby Sambrotto naturally put his own techniques to work selling his personal property. Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, nothing happened. His trendy New York condominium sat unsold for six months!

Eventually, he gave up. Mr Sambrotto not only hired an agent, he even agreed to a full fee and marketing budget. His decision paid off, and his condo was soon under contract.

What was the key?

Experience…

Based on his knowledge of the market, Jesse Buckler pushed the CEO to raise his asking price. When they listed the condo, the savvy agent set their sale price $150,000 higher than originally marketed.

Despite his expertise in the FSBO sphere, Mr Sambrotto didn’t realize he was sabotaging his very own sale. By incorrectly pricing his trendy condo in a hot market, he actually scared away potentially interested buyers!

Sometimes that’s all it takes to close the deal on an unsold home –

An Expert…

And when the expert you hire helps get your home sold for more money, it’s really a no-brainer.

CEO of ForSaleByOwner.com or not, Colby Sambrotto would certainly agree!

And he’s not the only one: Craigslist founder Craig Newmark has stated at multiple conferences that he loves his real estate agent. His business gives many owners an opportunity to post their own home for sale. Craigslist gives owners a platform to attract local buyers including Australia, without an agent. 

But, when Craig has real estate deals to do, just like Mel Gibson, Nicole Kidman, Vince Colosimo, Tina Arena & other celebrities…

THEY hire an agent.

Our Marketing Will Put Your Property in The Spotlight so it Becomes The Star Attraction.

Why is This Important?

Because the internet allows buyers to eliminate as many homes as possible before they…

  • actually, get into their car
  • to look around the community
  • drive through the neighbourhood
  • before they examine your street
  • then consider the outside, before
  • they step inside to inspect your house

As any of these can be a show stopper!

It’s imperative that Online & Offline Marketing, especially the Photographs & Your Property Presentation meets their expectations.

We Need to Make Sure, They Turn Up!

So, You List It + We Market + Negotiate Hard + Sell It = Your Home SOLD!
