The Solution

  • Communicate the sale event to all city south existing property owners.
  • Utilise our database of known active potential purchasers for this type of property.
  • Create competitive tension by employing the auction process.

  • We persuaded 30 parties to inspect which resulted in 20 contracts being issued.
  • The auction was well attended with strong competition on the floor.
  • Property sold under the hammer for $8.81m which was 20% above the expectation.
