30-Day Sale Campaign  
(Most Popular)

When property values are rising fast, buyers sense the urgency to make a quick decision so it is not uncommon to have many people bidding their best offer within a few days of advertising.

But what about when the property market is less buoyant? How can you still create that sense of “must see" excitement to view your home - and secure the best price possible?

Our “30-Day Sale Campaign" simulates the urgency that a rising market creates. The key factors in the campaign include:

  1. Setting your pricing strategy: “Buyer Search Range”

  2. Scheduling "Open House” inspections

  3. and creating a "Sell by Date”.

Online Auction

Whether you are selling an investment property or your home, we believe that the process should be exciting and stress free. That’s why Online Auction is fast, certain and most importantly secure.
With our Online Auction, you have a choice of selling online by two di
fferent methods:

  1. A traditional online auction, where a sale is effective immediately at the end of the specified time period. Exchange occurs online, immediately if your agreed reserve is met or exceeded at the end of your chosen time period.

  2. A conditional online auction, which provides the successful buyer with 20 working days from the end of the specified time period to exchange. This gives the buyer the chance to raise finance, which is likely to encourage additional buyers to be interested in your property.

Whatever the method of sale, all bidders on our site are pre-authorised and are required to input their payment details in advance of making a bid. Successful bidders are required to make a payment immediately at the end of the auction, so you know that buyers are committed to completing the sale.

Traditional Marketing

We do also offer traditional marketing with a fixed price valuation but to achieve the best price in a defined timeframe we recommend using “30-Day Sale” or “Online Auction”.
