Mark Burgess – Selling Real Estate across Perth and Golden Bay

Dear Golden Bay Home Owner,

Or should I say Golden Bay home seller.   

Auctions in Golden Bay are becoming more popular over time. Perth is still a long way behind the east coast but auction results are solid.

2017 Reiwa.com data  has revealed Golden Bay property sellers are likely to achieve significantly faster selling times if they choose to auction their property as opposed to those who sell using the private treaty method.

Results for the quarter to June 2017 indicated that across Perth, properties sold on average 42 days faster using auction. The average time to sell is 70 days for private treaty sales while it is a fast 28 days for sellers choosing to auction their Golden Bay property.

As a licensed and experienced auctioneer, I can market your Golden Bay property and take it to Auction with a result in 80% of occasions. This means you will

  1. Get an unconditional* sale on the day
  2. Or, get a sale shortly after the Auction
  3. Sell your property above what you thought you could get, or
  4. Find out what the market is willing to pay for your property fast so you aren’t hanging around for 70 days finding out you are overpriced.

A major benefit of going to auction is the sense of urgency and competition this method generates amongst Golden Bay buyers due to the shorter marketing and campaign period of auctions.

Only a small fraction of the sellers in the Perth suburb of Golden Bay sell at Auction. Golden Bay sellers have become more familiar with this sales method in recent times due to real estate TV shows, yet it still occurs at unusually low rates even though it is incredibly effective at getting properties sold fast and for great prices.

If you are a Golden Bay seller looking for a Golden Bay Auctioneer then talk to me. Or if you are a real estate agent in Golden Bay needing an Auction caller, then also talk to me.
