Selling Methods

Private Treaty

Still the most popular method of sale in WA, this sees buyers submit offers to the selling agent, who then negotiates to secure the best deal possible for the seller. The property can be listed on the market with or without a price; the buyer and the seller agree on price and contract conditions before the transaction proceeds.

Set Date Sale

Buyers are given a deadline to submit offers by, although the seller may accept an early offer. The property can be advertised without a price, or with “Offers from” a particular amount – your Edison McGrath property consultant will discuss the advantages of each with you. The buyer and seller agree on a price and contract conditions before the transaction proceeds.


Properties are marketed through an aggressive 3 or 4 week sales campaign, with 3 key opportunities to sell: Prior to auction by negotiation, “under the hammer” to the highest bidder, or by negotiation after the auction. The seller sets the ‘reserve’ price – the minimum amount the property can sell for. Edison McGrath is at the forefront of this exciting sales method, regularly achieving phenomenal sales and REIWA recognition.


Occasionally, a seller requests their property be sold as quietly and privately as possible. We understand these wishes, and have a track record of being able to deliver a sale with minimal public exposure of the property. Buyers are sourced through our database, without the need for signage, press advertising, website listings or home opens.
