The Sales Process

Sale by Private Treaty

The traditional method of sale for residential property is by private treaty. The agent establishes a guide price, markets the property, obtains and negotiates offers, agrees a sale and progresses to completion.

This is a step-by-step guide to the service you can expect to receive when you invite Masons to come and undertake a market appraisal of your home.


Sale by Informal Tender

Selling a property by informal tender involves buyers being invited to submit competitive bids by a specified date. The bids are put forward in a sealed envelope, so buyers are unaware of what their rivals are bidding. All the tenders are reviewed with the vendor, who then chooses the most favourable tender. Solicitors are then instructed and the sale is progressed in the usual way. It should be noted that informal tenders are not legally binding until contracts are exchanged. This form of sale works well if a vendor wishes to sell within a certain timeframe as it brings matters to a head quickly, and settles the best sale in a competitive situation.
