Guide to Selling Your House

When thinking of selling your property it is important to explore and understand the various options that are available to you. The two most popular methods are sale by Private Treaty or sale by Auction. At Halls we have been selling by both methods since 1845 so we believe have sufficient experience to give you advice on both methods.

Sale by Private Treaty

The most common type of residential property transaction is known as a Private Treaty sale. Following a property valuation with a Halls representative, an agreed guide price for your house would be set and the property would then be released to the market. After obtaining offers from prospective buyers we would negotiate on your behalf to achieve a sale as close to the discussed price as possible.

Sale by Auction

Those selling by Auction are often looking for a fast and successful sale whilst achieving the best possible price. Our experts know what makes a suitable auction property and following an individually planned and specific marketing campaign the property will be offered by auction. Our auctioneers then take over, using their many years of experience to tease out the sale price your property deserves. Subject to a successful sale, sellers are assured that on the fall of the hammer contracts are exchanged and a legally binding contract is formed. Completion of the sale usually takes place 28 days later.

We hold regular Collective Property Auctions for all types of residential, agricultural and commercial properties, delivered in the way that best suits our clients. We can arrange for an auction to be held at a venue close to the property or at our state-of-the-art, purpose built auction rooms at our head office in Shrewsbury.
