We can recommend the best method of selling your property which can be Private Treaty, Public Auction or Private Tender.
METHODS OF SALE:
- Public Auction.
- Public Tender.
- Private Treaty.
The advantage of a Public Auction is that it sets a definite time within which interested parties must view the property, have their solicitors approve the title and make the necessary arrangements regarding finance. It is necessary to quote an advised open marketed value in advance of an auction. Bids received in the auction room are binding and once accepted by auctioneer, contracts are exchanged immediately and a deposit is paid. Competitive bidding in the auction room can often generate a bonus over the expected price level.
Public Tender has many of the advantages of an auction. It introduces competition and sets a definite time frame for marketing the property and receiving tenders. Tender, by its nature, is confidential in the level of the bids received, or indeed whether there were any, is not disclosed. The vendor has a reasonable time to consider offers and decide whether they wish to accept the highest, or indeed any bid. Tender can be unpopular with prospective purchasers because of this privacy and it is felt, sometimes with justification, that the process is open to manipulation after the tenders have been submitted. Tender is most useful for specialist property, for those instances. Where different individuals may have widely varying views on value of the property or there may be a limited pool of purchasers or indeed a special purchaser, such as adjoining owners.
In the case of a Private Treaty sale, it is necessary to quote a price at the outset. The level must be high enough for the inevitable bargaining but not too high to put off interested parties altogether. The parties invariably concentrate on the price initially and only when it is agreed do they focus on the other terms of the contract, which may be of equal importance. It invariably takes longer to conclude a sale although with careful management, delays can be kept to an acceptable level. Private treaty as a method of marketing is used when it is felt that there is unlikely to be sufficient number of interested parties at one time that would bid competitively and thereby justify the costs of a sale by auction.
