Which risks does the self-marketing of your property potentially hold

At the beginning of a real estate sale lies the assessment of the market value of your property. This is the basis for all further sales negotiations and carries risk potential, because the selling price is often set too high or too low. In both cases, this will negatively affect your concern to get the best possible price for your property. Too low of a price leads to financial losses, too high of a selling price could mean that the search for a suitable buyer will extend over a very long time. The real estate agents of Engel & Völkers Germany use, among other things, market data analysis, land values and target group analyzes for an adequate market value determination. In addition, property owners often underestimate the amount of time they spend on appointment scheduling and viewing appointments with prospective buyers. In addition to the email traffic or telephone calls for appointment coordination, you should be able to answer any questions about your property. The stress factor of selling a villa, a house or a flat independently while not neglecting the daily and professional duties is not to be underestimated. Ultimately, the appointment of an experienced real estate broker like Engel & Völkers Germany saves you time and money and helps you avoid legal and financial pitfalls.
