Method of Sale

Sale by Private Treaty means that the seller sets a price at which their property is to be marketed to the public through the marketing plan agreed to by the seller and the agent.

Sale by Auction means that prospective purchasers will bid against one another at a date and time suitable to the seller. The seller can set a reserve price, which is the minimum they will accept, and once bidding has passed that level you know you have a sale, as it will be unconditional and a predetermined deposit must be paid on the day.
