Decisions as important as those relating to the valuation or the sale of a property are not something you should leave to chance. Would you risk a court appearance without a lawyer, or fill in your tax return yourself? Use the market and service expertise of a professional estate agent.
We earn our money if the customer is satisfied with the service we provide! For this reason, we are also very proud of the many properties which we successfully place on the market. We want to be better than you expect, and look forward to working with you!
Why use a real estate agent?
This is a question which probably arises in the minds of market participants, buyers, sellers and landlords alike.
Buying or selling a property is usually only a once-in-a-lifetime decision. Some people, for example, are looking for the most attractive offer quickly and without complications, while other people want, among other things, to find a sound customer and to get the best possible price. But they are all looking for the service provider who will accompany them in the most effective possible way in buying or selling a property. Below, we outline for you some criteria which will certainly help you to get closer to that target of getting the best results!
Speak to people who have already had good experiences with estate agents. Which company is the most proactive, which one is recommended again and again, which one is the market leader?
Have a good look at the range of properties offered by estate agents who have specialised in properties in your district. Which agent is particularly successful in your section of the market?
Compare the internet presence of different estate agents and the properties advertised on their websites. Do the positions and sale prices match your property and/or what you were looking for?
Make your decision to commission just one single company for a specified period. Only an agent who is the sole representative will invest the optimum amount of time and money to market your property.
Keep in mind that by commissioning more than one company, the property could lose its uniqueness and thus the possibility of recovering the best possible price. Multiple advertising, multiple approaches to customers cause confusion and annoyance for anyone interested in the property and in the market itself.
Just think – the way in which the estate agents present themselves to you gives an idea of how your property will be presented.
We wish you every success in choosing your estate agent!
