As a homeowner, what should you bear in mind when selling your house?

From determining the property’s market value right through to the signing of contracts: here are the most important considerations when selling your home.

The decision to sell a property brings a whole host of different tasks with it. First of all you should have the current market value of your home determined in order to find the right buyer with a targeted marketing strategy. After all, you don’t want to sell your house or apartment “below value”. On the basis of this market price estimate, other activities then follow that should not be underestimated.

Here are the most important of them at a glance:

    1. Determining the current market value of your property
    2. Possible optimisation measures (to building/appointment standard), with a view to increasing the value of the property
    3. Presentation of the property from the production of premium-quality printed details through to the design and placement of advertisements (print & online)
    4. Obtaining of information about interested parties / potential buyers
    5. Arranging and holding of viewing appointments
    6. Price negotiations and commissioning of the notary agreement
    7. Provision and verification of all relevant documentation (e.g. ground floor plans, planning permissions, register of construction encumbrances, insurance policies, energy certificate)
    8. Arranging of the notary appointment and processing of the contract
Why is it worth commissioning the services of an estate agent?

From ascertaining the sale price to optimising the sale process and processing the sale contract: don’t leave anything to chance when selling your home. Call in an expert instead.

As is obvious from the aforementioned points, it is highly recommendable to consult an experienced sales advisor when selling a property. By commissioning an expert with a brokerage from the outset, you can save yourself a great deal of time and nerves, as well as avoiding financial and legal risks.
