Yes, you can sell your own property by a set date.
This is essentially a private auction, a combination of both the private sale and auction methods.
In this instance, your home would usually be marketed over four weeks and advertised with a deadline.
Buyers can submit offers at any point of the campaign, which you can choose to accept. If you receive an acceptable offer, all registered buyers are contacted and have until to the close of business the following day (except Sundays) to submit their best final offer, which won’t be disclosed to any other buyers.
“Sale by set date” is a registered trademark by Barry Plant, so if you are thinking of selling by set date, do not use that wording in your advertisement.
Pro: Great for sellers who value privacy, without loosing the urgency and competition of an auction campaign.
Con: Buyers lose the transparency of a public auction where they can see who their competition is.
