Guide to Selling

Step by Step Guide to Selling at Auction

  1. Call us for an appointment, for one of the associates to inspect the property to establish whether it is suitable for sale by auction.
  2. A confidential “Reserve Price” is established – The Auctioneer is only permitted to sell the property for over and above the Reserve Price. (We try to reach prices relatively higher than the reserve price so it is important to set an attractive Reserve Price to keep potential purchasers interested and attract more bidders)
  3. An exclusive agreement with Malta Property Auctioneers Ltd. is signed for a period of up to four weeks after the auction day.
  4. Malta Auctioneers adopts a split commission/sharing policy. Any broker or agent that would like to introduce a potential buyer for any of the lots may do so, safe in the knowledge that their share of commission (50% of 5%) will be honored. Agents and brokers are invited to register their email addresses with us in order to be the first to learn of any new listings. Should other Real Estate Companies wish to show a property listed on auction they can do this by calling our office for an appointment.
  5. Our commission rate is 4% (+VAT) payable on the final deed of sale only – No hidden Costs!
  6. Malta Property Auctioneers will market the property at its own expense IMMEDIATELY on the signing of an agreement. Marketing includes Letter & Email mail shots to our selected database clients, PR articles, distribution of the auction catalogue, various adverts on prominent local newspapers and magazines, TV participation & Spot advertising. (Malta Property Auctioneers Ltd. also prepares notarial searches on the property at its own expense to assure potential purchasers of clear title of the said property)
  7. Malta Property Auctioneers Ltd. has a team of experienced property consultants that will bring potential purchasers to view the property. If keys cannot be handed to Malta Property Auctioneers, then viewings will be set at the vendor’s convenience.
  8. Malta Property Auctioneers affiliates with over ten reputable other real estate agencies with branches all over Malta, ( A list of our partners can be found below) . These will all work hand in hand to find you the best bidder, making our sale force a team of over 200 agents and growing!
