How To Buy

The Suburban Land Agency sells residential land in a variety of ways, Over the Counter, Auction and Ballot.

Over the Counter

From time to time the Suburban Land Agency sells land Over the Counter. This usually occurs when land has been offered for sale via a sales event such as a ballot or auction and blocks are unsold or returned to the market at a later date. Land available for sale Over the Counter is advertised on the Suburban Land Agency website and sold either directly through the Suburban Land Agency or through one of the Suburban Land Agency’s exclusive selling agents.

Ballot Process

A new land release in an Suburban Land Agency residential estate may be offered for sale through the Suburban Land Agency’s ballot system. The ballot system is the fairest and most transparent way the Suburban Land Agency can sell residential blocks to the public. Block prices are set at the market value, which allows the buyer to purchase the block without the risk of a higher bidder obtaining the block.

Auction Process

Any interested parties must register to participate in an Suburban Land Agency auction. Details of how to register are available as part of the Sales Documentation for each auction. Once registered, a bidder’s number will be provided which is held up to indicate to the auctioneer that the bidder wishes to place a bid. The block will be sold to the bidder with the highest bid above the undisclosed reserve price.
