Residential and Commercial Sales Services in Roscommon

Thinking of selling your property?

Methods of sale:

Private Treaty
the private treaty method involves marketing and promoting the property in a pre-defined manner with an asking price or guiding price disclosed to prospective purchasers. Private Treaty is by far the most common method of sale because it is relatively inexpensive, negotiations can be thorough and various bidders can be pitched against each other with anonymity.

Public Auction
Public auction is that potential purchasers are invited to bid publicly for the property at specific time and place. This is the most transparent method of sale, and the purchaser is required to sign a contract and pay a deposit immediately at the conclusion of the auction. This method can result in a more expensive marketing campaign when compared to private treaty, especially if the main reason for the auction is transparency.

REA Seamus Carthy Auction Platform

Sale by tender is usually appropriate where the vendor requires a structured sale process to take place within a specific time frame and where the value may be difficult to determine. The vendor may publicise the tender or may decide to tender the property to specific parties. Tenders are invited in a prescribed format with prescribed terms and conditions.
