Private Sale or silent sale with Sotheby's International Realty

You want to sell your house, but don't want to advertise it? For privacy reasons, because you wish to sell under certain conditions, or because you are in no hurry and want to generate the highest resale value? Then opt for private sale, or silent auction, with Sotheby's International Realty.

How does private sale work?

With private sale, we do not advertise through off- and online listings, do not publish (or not recognisably publish) on housing websites and do not post a sales board. Netherlands Sotheby's International Realty has developed its own method to present your property in an attractive way online. We do this with a good description and beautiful images. In this way, we give interested parties an impression of the property. Without being recognisable and without giving away the location.

We approach serious prospective buyers

We understand better than anyone else that exceptional real estate requires a discreet market approach. To this end, we use the age-old principles Sotheby's Auction House uses when auctioning art and antiques. We have translated these into a smart and effective method for silent sales. Thus, from the approximately thirty thousand people who have registered with us, we approach a selection of serious prospective buyers: active house seekers within our network. 


We also have daily contact with our colleagues at Sotheby's Auction House and Sotheby's International Realty in Belgium, London, Germany, Dubai, United States, South Africa, India, Hong Kong and surrounding areas. Thanks to this international network and our expertise in luxury properties, your chances of finding the right candidate via silent auction are high. In the unlikely event that we do not succeed in selling your home via silent auction, it is always possible to make the sale public. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

How to put my house on private sale
  • We take all the details of your property and register it in our system. We do this with a sales text, photos and any floor plans;
  • In consultation with you, we determine the strategy, comparable to fitting a tailor-made suit. Every approach is different. We discuss all possibilities with you. For example, what information can we bring to the attention of our network of potential buyers?
  • We list the property on Netherlands Sotheby's International Realty's 'Private Sale' page;
  • We do not mention a price unless we decide by mutual agreement to do so;
  • We prepare a private sale contract in writing. This is because, according to NVM rules, an NVM estate agent needs a written assignment from the seller to put the house up for silent sale. This is also better for the seller; it avoids surprises afterwards;
  • Together with you, we will complete a questionnaire and a list of issues. This allows us to directly answer questions from any interested parties.
Why list a house for private sale?

We would like to set out once again why opting for a private sale is a good idea:

  • The property will not be disclosed to a general public. 
  • Complete privacy regarding the sale of your property. 
  • You want to sell under certain conditions. 
  • If you already have a potential buyer, private sale is extremely suitable. 
  • You won't get a billboard in the garden and so you won't be bothered by nosy people. 
  • No cost of advertisement
