Method of Sale

The method of sale can be Auction, private treaty, tender or expressions of interest. Two best approaches are private treaty or auction. Both approaches have their advantage and disadvantage. In an auction, there is no cooling-off period and contracts are exchanged on the same day. In a private treaty, the home owner sets the price and the real estate agency sells the house on behalf of the home owner.

Finding the right real estate agent

Finding the right real estate agent is important to sell your property. The real estate agent or agency helps in marketing the property and negotiates with the buyers of behalf of the seller.
