Our expertise as a global real estate company

Buyingor selling a residential property

If you're looking for residential real estate,it's likely you'll have a very clear idea of what you need. We'll make sure to listen to all your preferences and requirements before offering you carefully chosen residential properties from our portfolio. Buying a residential property can also come with a number of legal requirements and implications, depending on your chosen country. Our agents can take you through the process so you know exactly where you stand with regards to legal and tax liabilities.

Selling a residential property doesn't have to be a chore either – we'll handle the cumbersome aspects, and make sure you get the best value for your property. Selling isn't the only option, of course – it can often be very financially rewarding to simply rent your property instead, depending on the local market. See more on this below in the 'Property Investment and Rentals' section.

Buying or selling a second home

We operate all over the world. So if you're looking for your perfect summer getaway or winter escape, we're perfectly placed to help you buy your dream foreign property. Our global presence means we can locate premium real estate in Italy or France, luxury villas in Spain, as well as plenty of overseas properties in the United States, South America, South Africa and Asia. We can also assist if you're seeking residential land for a new build.

There are a number of aspects to consider when buying a vacation home or apartment as a second home, and these principles apply whether you're seeking a property in Italy or thinking about purchasing a house in Spain. It can be tempting to rush into a purchase, especially if you seem to have found the perfect property, but taking a measured approach can be advantageous in the long run. Location, the distance from your main home, and how attractive it will be to sell or rent in the future can all make a huge difference to your investment. Our agents are on hand to help you research and plan every step.

Property investment and rentals

When it's time to move on from a property, whether it’s a second home in the city or vacation apartment by the coast, selling isn’t your only option. We can help you explore other possibilities. Our team is highly experienced when it comes to residential sales of course, but we can also help you to get maximum return on your property if you decideto pursue another avenue.

Renting property

Renting out an owned property can be very lucrative, particularly if it’s a holiday home. One of the advantages of renting out your vacation property is that it will be available for you during certain times of the year, yet if you choose to go somewhere different for your holidays, it can still earn you money while you relax.

City apartments are almost always in demand, so if you're considering moving to a more rural location, it's perfectly viable to keep your apartment working for you.

Investment in property

Investing in other residential housing opens up even more options. We can help you invest the proceeds of a sale into a new residential house, which could then be used for rental. Because our agents know their local areas so well, we're able to advise based on regional market trends. This helps you get the best deals and long-term value.

In the end, no matter where your search takes you, Engel & Völkers can help you find the ideal property. Head over to our residential listings page to browse our portfolio and get in touch with our friendly team if you're consideringinvesting, buying or selling a residential space.
