Private Sale

  • A sale campaign normally runs between four to six weeks
  • Once the process begins it will usually take between seven to ten days to get the campaign up and running
  • During that time frame we organise professional photography, floorplans/Siteplan sign board, internet and newspaper advertising campaign to be organised and launched
  • The campaign is usually launched one week prior to the first open for inspection

  • Our media release will be launched promoting your property

  • The sales funds will be paid into your nominated bank account or that of your conveyancer/solicitor


  • Public Auction

    Our Auction system is foolproof in protecting the price of the property and gives us the opportunity to over achieve our estimated price for the following reasons.

  • Unlike the private sale method we do not have a fixed asking price, which automatically places a ceiling on what you can expect to achieve
  • The auction system allows us to expose the property to the market place for a five week period before having to advise you on what price you should be considering for the property
  • It allows a potential purchaser to offer us a figure prior to auction that may well be way above what we and other purchasers perceive the property to be worth. If this happens we would secure their unconditional offer in writing then contact all other interested parties alerting them the property may sell prior to auction. This gives them the opportunity to submit their best offer prior to you having to ratify the sale. If similar offers were readily forthcoming we would obviously advise you to proceed to auction
  • If we did not receive an offer at auction that was in line with our expectations we would advise you to pass the property in and then market the property at an asking price that is in line with our original advice
  • With a 98% success rate at auctions, Graeme Taylor Estate Agents have the edge on other competitors


  • Open For Inspections

    Our open inspections are executed differently to other agencies. We feel our method of conducting open inspections will provide the vendor a greater opportunity to reach the ideal price.

  • At every opportunity possible we have two agents present at open inspections. We feel by having two agents present, it allows us to communicate more freely and effectively with the potential purchasers
  • Upon entry to the property we request photo identification of each purchaser. We take note of the purchasers name and ask for their number. We do this for two reasons; the first is so we can confirm the identity of the purchaser; and two, so we can contact them after the open inspection and follow up on their interest
  • When we enter the property before the open inspection we open all blinds, turn on all lights and present the property in a manner to create a warm and friendly environment
  • When we have completed the Open For Inspection we check every room turning off lights, we lock all doors. We assure you the property will be left in exactly the same way you left it
