Let's look at a private treaty or an auction is there are preferred
I guess method that you like, that you like to advise your vendors on?
Look, i'm very pro auction, whether the market
is flying or it's contracting, I think auction it drives competition,
it creates urgency for buyers
and it also creates a deadline for people to work towards. To give you an example -
I recently sold a free-standing
house and the guide price for the house was $2.4million, initially got an offer from a
buyer at $2.3 million in the first week, come the auction day
we had eight other registered bidders there, that
buyer ended up paying a premium of $2.8 million for the property.
Now, I don't think we ever would have got to $2.8million, should have been,
a private treaty or just a for sale campaign, that really sort of
drove the competition through the property.
We had over a 120 buyers through it and I think it's you know,
that’s the right process to go through, and that you know,
a lot of people are saying this is a contracting market and a changing market,
which we've seen a lot of signs of that
but I think that auction campaign and that process works the best in every market
purely because you know it drives competition
and creates urgency creates a fear of missing out for buyers
