At Empire we have a strong belief that its important to go the extra mile, CONNECT with our clients and understand their needs.

Market intelligence, marketing initiatives and diverse marketing techniques allow us to present your property to the widest market possible, and from there we ensure we ENGAGE with your potential buyer and negotiate a successful sale.
Selling your property is all about you and YOUR home, by going BEYOND more than 80% of our business is repeat referrals.
Auction or setting an asking price? There are different methods of sale and choosing the most appropriate method is important to discuss with your agent, the property, your expectations, your preferred time frames and the market are all important factors on choosing the right method.
PRIVATE TREATY / ASKING PRICE SALE
Listing an asking price or requesting offers or expressions of interest can be more appealing to buyers, as the process is less intimidating and easier to understand. The property is advertised and a series of home opens are conducted till an appropriate offer is accepted. Private sales are attractive to buyers but can take longer as there is not the same sense of urgency compared to an Auction or Fixed Date Sale. This method of selling can provide both the Seller and Buyer considerable flexibility in relation to the conditions of sale. Each written offer to purchase can be negotiated to provide an ideal outcome for all parties.
We recommend selling by Auction if the market is strong or your home has a unique quality that is difficult to put a precise value on. Auction is recognised as an effective way of creating broad public interest, achieving maximum publicity and reaching a large number of prospective purchasers. After a set series of home opens over a 4 to 5 week period, you set a reserve price with your agent (the minimum price you will sell your property for) and the agent conducts the auction on the specified date. There are laws for conducting an auction, so it is better left to a professional! If bids don’t reach your reserve price, your agent may negotiate with the highest bidder on your behalf.
Auctions can result in a higher price for your property as there can be a sense of urgency and competition amongst buyers, however the prospect of an auction can also put buyers off. It’s important to discuss with your agent what the best way to sell your property is for you.
SET DATE SALE / TENDER
You and your real estate agent work out a price range for your property, prior to it being advertised and shown. The agent conducts a series of home opens and buyer appointments and invites prospective buyers to formally submit their best offer, which must be received by a specific date and time. After the set date, your agent will collect and present the offers to you. You can choose to accept the highest offer, enter negotiations or re-list the property if your desired price is not reached.
The team at Empire have always been highly professional and wonderful to work with - they have sold 3 of my houses and I got the price I was looking for. They provided expert advice so that my properties were sold quickly and with very little hassle!
Organised, efficient and friendly team.

After attending many home viewings, Kylie Hall was a stand out property manager. Her professionalism and warmness just added to the fact she was managing the ideal place I was looking for.
We just wanted to express our sincere gratitude to Kylie Hall (Senior Property Manager, Empire Estate Agents Team) for making our stay pleasant, great and memorable in our house leases in Maylands. Kylie Hall has been the best property manager from the way she fondly treated my family and I. She always made sure to respond promptly to problems at the house and provided the best services. We were very comfortable, and we can't thank you enough. I proudly give 5 stars for their kind services. Thank you very much, and I hope to keep in touch in future.
I have nothing but great things to say about the team at Empire. I feel very comfortable leaving our property in their capable hands.
