Want to successfully sell your property? The four biggest advantages of consulting a real estate agent

Have you decided to sell your house or apartment? Then there’s just one question left: should I consult a real estate agent or sell my property on my own? In this post, we’ll show you four reasons why it usually makes sense to consult an experienced real estate agent.

Zug - Maklergespräch

There are a few stumbling blocks that every seller should be aware of before they sell their home. First, you need to ask yourself: do I know anything about property sales? If not, you’ll need one thing above all: time. After all, you want to get the best sales price you can for your property, not casually sell it under value.

Below, we’ve listed the four advantages of relying on an experienced real estate agent when selling your apartment or house.

1. The foundation of a successful sale: assessing the sale value

The first thing you need to do is answer the pivotal question: how much is my property worth? Did you know that nearly half of Swiss property owners incorrectly estimate the value of their property – by a margin of up to 40 percent?

A successful sale begins with the value assessment. Our experienced brokers can see the merits and special qualities of properties that might not be apparent to a layperson at first sight. Another advantage: because Engel & Völkers has a dense network of local branches, we possess an in-depth understanding of your regional submarket, which also helps us to correctly assess the value of your property.

2. Time savings

An experienced real estate agent knows exactly what needs to be done. This begins with prior discussions with authorities and ends with communicating with notaries when closing the deal. They also take on other time-consuming administrative tasks: property listings, phone calls, discussions with potential buyers and viewing appointments may not require much expertise, but they’re a whole lot of work. Remember: time is money.

3. Your real estate agent offers support with decisions

Negotiations are generally more successful when you have experience. A broker can offer you valuable input that can have a big impact on the sale price. This advantage should not be underestimated. For example, an experienced real estate agent can easily determine whether it makes sense to renovate your property before a sale or not.

4. Success-oriented sales – a real estate agent’s daily routine

This is every Engel & Völkers real estate agent's core discipline. Our brokers will advise you in the creation of a strong sale portfolio. Correctly preparing the right information is an agent’s bread and butter – and gives you an additional advantage.

Which customer segments should you be marketing your property to? The right sales channel can significantly accelerate the sales process. Engels & Völkers real estate agents can draw on a huge network of potential buyers. Take advantage of it if you want to sell your house or apartment!
