Which is right for you?

Auction - vs - Listing

It’s your property and your choice. But before deciding, we’ve outlined some of the differences and benefits of each method – whether selling your real estate by online or live auction or private treaty listing. You choose the method you prefer.

Selling at Auction

Publicly held sale of real estate to the highest bidder.

Increases marketability to a larger group of buyers
Allows transparency between competing bidders and when working with multiple sellers
Provides finality with a definite sale date
Focus buyers to think about and make decisions
Simplifies transaction and negotiations between multiple parties, which can preserve relationships

Selling through Private Treaty

The price and terms of the sale is confidentially negotiated between the seller and buyer.

Offers flexibility with the length of time your property is listed for sale
Gives you control over both the asking price and terms
Allows you to consider offers at your discretion
Provides confidentiality due to the ‘private’ nature of the process
Enables buyer to negotiate price and terms
