Finest auction business in Australia
Our market leading position comes from an unwavering commitment to auctions. Ray White listed 24 per cent of all auctions across the country last week. We had 600 auctions scheduled last week. Auction volume has been building week on week as confidence grows. Last week our sellers who stayed the course and sold under the hammer were rewarded. When comparing the highest offer prior to the final sale price, home sellers received 11.1 per cent more by selling under the hammer. All our corporate auctioneers can offer both on-sites and online auctions. Our national team of auctioneers led the industry by quickly adapting to the new auction environment, using unique technology that had been created by our team of in-house experts. The Ray White Group clearance rate on auction day last Saturday was 76 per cent. Even more pleasing is that 93 per cent of auctions had bidding giving our customers an opportunity to sell.
Private Treaty – Our approach to private treaty is aligned with the auction method of creating competitive situations between buyers to create the best outcomes for our seller clients.
We have never lost faith in the value we can bring our sellers in a challenging market through effective marketing. If you choose to sell, we will be suggesting an investment in marketing, as we believe it enables us to maximise competition and clearly illustrate your intent to sell and therefore attract genuine buyers. We appreciate that some people would prefer to sell quietly, or off-market, and avoid an investment in marketing, but our experience tells us that this most often leads to little competition and therefore you’re negotiating from a weak position.
People need facts not media speculation, to be able to create informed decisions. Whether that be a decision to list your property on the market or to be in touch with real time market conditions. The reliance on data and proof points has never been more important for good decision making.
We have access to the largest pool of up-to-date information available and have the experience to help you analyse relevant data to help you make the right decision.
As Australasia’s largest real estate group, supported by a dedicated and highly experienced team of news hounds in our PR team, we are able to generate maximum exposure for our customers.
Our media exposure dominates all other brands in terms of publicity – which is the sweet spot.
Our profile in newspaper advertising and editorials – along with having the largest number of listings on realestate.com.au and domain.com.au – is huge.
To put a price on the power of the media coverage we received $54 million worth of earned media mentions across print, online, radio and TV in October, according to the iSentia media intelligence service.
We have a dedicated team of highly experienced in-house journalists who can get your property the exposure that money can’t buy.
When a home is listed with Ray White, our clients are introduced to the national public relations service; a team that’s plugged into the Australian media and has the sole focus of achieving more exposure for the properties we sell, to the audience that matters most.
Being the biggest real estate group in the country has direct advantages for our sellers. Our ability to target the largest pool of buyers within a campaign is a strength which you can be confident will assist us in delivering the best possible result for you. In the current market conditions, it’s critical to target the broadest possible audience and to be as efficient as possible in tailoring appropriate messaging to your potential buyers. After all, our focus is to seek out the buyer for your property that will pay more than everyone else.
We do this by having the greatest number of relationships with buyers in the market today. Combine our relationships with our use of technology, we can engage with buyers on a level that will ensure we can find the premium buyer for your property.
In addition to our ability to target broad audiences, Ray White Concierge, our communication specialists, unique to Ray White, can target one of the most influential audiences, our local communities. Our 118 years of real estate experience has enabled us to understand that a catalyst for creating competition is leveraging the local community and our data shows that in some cases, up to 60 per cent of property purchasers come from neighbours and their friends.
Concierge is able to communicate to property owners in surrounding streets, positioning your property to ensure that it is at the centre of our communities’ attention. With our dedicated team of 100+ Ray White Concierge specialists, Concierge in coordination with our appointed agent, can deliver a layered community communication program including telephone calls, SMS and email, ensuring that the most influential people are alerted early to the sale of your property.
