Ways to sell property in Southern Tasmania

The four main marketing strategies for selling your property

There are four main marketing strategies sellers can use to sell their property: a private treaty, an auction, an expression of interest campaign, and a sale by tender.


For sellers in Southern Tasmania, understanding the four primary methods of selling a property is not just advantageous—it's essential. In a region where real estate markets can fluctuate and individual circumstances vary widely, grasping these distinct selling approaches empowers sellers to navigate the selling process confidently and clearly.


By delving into each method, sellers can make informed decisions tailored to their unique goals and circumstances, ultimately maximising their sales potential and optimising their marketing strategy. Below, we explore the four main methods of selling property in Southern Tasmania and uncover how this knowledge can elevate your selling experience and outcomes.


Contact one of our professional and experienced property agents for more comprehensive and individualised information and support. They can provide you with a complimentary property appraisal and discuss the best method for selling your home or investment.

Private treaty - Fall Real Estate

Private treaty

A private treaty is the most common selling campaign owners will use to sell their property in Tasmania. Fall Real Estate can advertise your property with a particular asking price, or a price guide will be given, such as "Offers over $600 000".


Depending on the market and buyer competition, the owner may receive offers well over the starting price. Our experienced property agents can discuss the current market conditions you will be selling, guiding you towards the optimal strategy for your property.

Auction - Fall Real Estate


While auctions are less common in Tasmania, they are increasingly utilised in today's market and chosen carefully for particular featured properties with high interest. They also provide an exciting environment for buyers who want to acquire your property.


Your property agent can also easily witness each buyer's interest level and assess the competition. Buyers also tend to have all their necessary checks and professional advice before bidding, as the buyer and seller can often choose to sign the contract on the day of the auction.

Expressions of interest campaign - Fall Real Estate

Expressions of interest campaign

Your property agent will include an “expression of interest” campaign in the title of the property listing to invite buyers to submit an offer within a timeframe.


An expression of interest allows buyers to submit their highest offer on a property before the closing date. The owner can choose to accept the best offer (or most appealing offer) or decide against selling the property if they do not receive the desired selling price or conditions they want.

Sale by tender - Fall Real Estate

Sale by tender

Sale by tender also provides buyers with a deadline to submit offers. Typically, the buyers will fill out a tender form with their price offer (their perceived value of the property) and special terms and conditions and seal the tender documents in an envelope. The seller will receive and open all offers simultaneously on the due date and decide which offer they will accept.
