Auctions are an exciting way to sell property.


An auction is one of the oldest ways to sell anything with an immediate outcome. Its a special event on many levels for any seller of property. Really life changing when it all goes to plan for a successful outcome. It includes public promotion of the property for a live sales presentation on a set date. Creative campaign to capture as many buyers genuinely willing to attend the day/night to bid with the highest bid/offer wins the purchase.

The process really gets the buyers to become competitive in the bidding process along with getting caught up in the moment. Its the magic of the live event negotiating in public by open bidding.

There is always discussion on Auction versus Private Treaty or Set Date Sales in West Australia as a method of marketing, managing the sales process. How to get the most money in the shortest timeframe with the most effective investment of money, effort & less stress. Auctions is a way of selling that has been used since the beginning of time. If the property is of interest to the general public, it is promoted properly, buyers will show up for the opportunity to bid. Proactive, interactive live selling is a reality with an outcome that’s immediate. Any property no matter what the price point comes down to authentication of value. A comprehensive analysis of property condition, presentation, price strategies to get the market to respond, engage, bid to buy is under the magnifying glass for auction. There is nowhere to hide, no excuses on auction day. It’s an art of marketing & management for a sales event outcome of a lifetime. If there is not a satisfactory result on the date of auction the property marketing continues as a normal sale by private treaty anyway. Who dares can win..
