In New South Wales there are 2 major methods of selling real estate - private treaty or auction. Private treaty sounds very grand but really it is a matter of a seller and buyer coming together to agree on the price and other special terms. The legals are handled by lawyers or registered conveyancers once the "deal” has been done.
