  • Cooling-Off period of 5 days
  • Building & Pest, sometimes up to 21 days
  • Other Conditions
  • The Buyer has 4 ‘outs’ of the contract should they change their mind


  • Set time-frame comprised of a 4-5 week marketing campaign
  • Guaranteed Result either before the auction, at the auction, or after the auction
  • Urgency creates competition between bidders, driving the price up- forcing the buyer to make a decision
