There are several methods available for selling your home.
The following is a brief outline of:

For Sale by Open Listing
When you list your home with more than one real estate company it is known as an "Open Listing".
Each company deals with the seller and basically work against the others to sell the property.
Only the selling agent is paid commission on the sale of the property. Many real estate companies will not advertise
or market open listings because of the need to make a quick sale rather than a well negotiated sale to the most suitable purchaser.
Many sellers feel that by listing their home with more companies, they will access more buyers.
This, in fact, is not the case. Buyers "shop around" for houses. If your home is marketed correctly, the buyer will find it.

For Sale by Exclusive marketing
Exclusive marketing arrangements give best results to sellers because the real estate consultant has the exclusive responsibility
for the sale and can invest time, expertise and money into the marketing effort for your home. At present, most homes in your area
sell within a reasonably short time. Often they sell much more quickly but sometimes it is necessary to give enough
time for persistence to pay off. We usually suggest a marketing programme be put in place for a 120 day exclusive agency.


Auction has been around for hundreds of years as a way of selling all sorts of things. When it comes to Real Estate,
auction is gaining momentum as the preferred way to sell across Australasia. When there is an identifiable
excess of demand, an auction has no peer. Auctions can attack the market both in a buyers market or a sellers market.
In a sellers market where there are few homes to sell and many buyers, it will give sellers a higher price. In a buyers market
where there are many homes for sale and fewer buyers, you may attack the market and therefore save valuable time.

Private sale

The majority of our sales are made privately. Many people are surprised to learn this, but the great marketing
exposure given to properties that are auctioned often overshadows our fantastic private sale results.
At KW Property we have an impressive database of people waiting to purchase.

Auction Success Rate
There are fewer auctions at the moment and agents should be selective in recommending an auction.
For this reason our 'clearance rate' continues to be high in our market. If you have a special property
or one that will generate plenty of interest, it may be appropriate to sell through the auction method of sale.
