Sale of properties prior to Christmas.
As the auction selling season draws to a close (Dec.14th) we are receiving many calls from agents endeavouring to effect “OFF MARKET” sales.
All would like to sell sooner rather than later so they are contacting agents with the request that “if you have a buyer please let us know”. What follows is agents go to their databases and email or telephone buyers in the price range.
We frequently receive such communications and it is amazing how often the calls result in sales. Our relationships with agents are a vital cog in the success of our business.
The current market can be described as “patchy”.
Properties in the price range up to $1.7 million are selling like hot scones both at private sale and auction. In the range $2 to 3 million they are selling more slowly. Over that it is hard work in many cases with some properties taking many weeks to sell.
