SET SALE DATE:
Time frame attached to offers made within a limited time frame.
Both conditional and conditional offers considered
A process of selling , calling for Purchasers to make their best offer in writing by a set date.
Tender documents, giving the particulars and conditions for the property are obtained from the agent
A price for the property is not advertised allowing the market to decide value.
Tenders remain confidential until closing date, when the seller chooses one offer as being most favourable – no offers are accepted, and offerees have opportunity to increase their offer.
Offers can be unconditional or conditional
The details of any tender made, will not be divulged to any other tenderer or third party.
There is a lot of secrecy surrounding this process, and hence not as popular with agents , buyers or vendors.
Offers can not be made prior to Tender date.
SALE BY PRICE:
Works best with a lower value property
Has quick response to sell if priced close to or under market value
If priced too far above market value, the buyers do not inspect.
Requires extremely accurate estimate of price point to make the most of advertising spend.
Buyers tend to make offers under the asking price
