What is the best time of the year to sell a property in Canberra?
Selling at different times of the year can have its own advantages and disadvantages. For example, spring is the traditional selling season in Canberra that sees significant buyer activity. However, having many similar properties on the market at the same time can mean additional competitive pressure on the sellers. Conversely, colder months of the year see less buyer activity but also reduced competition between sellers due to fewer properties on the market. We would be more that happy to advise you on the best strategy for your particular property.
What is the difference between a private treaty and an auction sale?
During for sale by auction campaign the reserve (selling) price is not disclosed and the buyers must register and bid for the property on the auction day. Private treaty sales involve advertising a property at a certain price and negotiating with individual buyers. Both of these methods work well but they need to be employed strategically depending on the market conditions, property type and the seller’s requirements. Our experienced sales advisors will be able to assist you with the most appropriate method of sale for your property.
