Selling your property may seem like an easy matter, but it’s a decision that’s full of risks when you don’t have the guidance and support of an experienced agent. When it comes to such an important decision there’s no room for error. A skilled agent has experience selling homes—he or she knows the market in your area, can best determine your property’s value, has an extensive network of contacts including private clients, and has the specialized skills needed for negotiations—all of which can help you attain the best deal. Additionally, your agent will assist you during the often stressful and time-consuming process of compiling the relevant documents needed for the sale of your property.
When you use an experienced agent, you benefit from his or hers:
There are a number of factors that can impact the real estate market—along with unforeseen circumstances—that can make it difficult to assess a property’s commercial value. This is why only an agent with the appropriate training and knowledge can correctly assess your property’s value. In addition to knowing the market conditions, a skilled agent will take into account the multitude of factors that can affect your property’s value and will create a comprehensive report of the optimal purchase or sale price.
This type of professional assessment is important for a property owner because it provides a detailed overview for determining an appropriate listing price. When selling a property, the adage “time is money” holds true: a property that’s listed at an incorrect price may take much longer to sell—and often leads to offers that are significantly lower than the actual value of the property—if it sells at all.
There’s a common misconception that listing a property with multiple agents will result in a quicker sale or lease. This is, without a doubt, wrong. Listing your property with multiple agents results in a sloppy presentation—your property will be listed on various websites, often at different prices, giving the impression that there is something wrong with it. One thing is certain: none of these agents will devote the time, energy and money required to market your property correctly. The key word here is “exclusivity.”
Signing an exclusivity agreement offers you many advantages. Your agent will provide you with premium and innovative marketing services that are specifically tailored to your property. Your property will be promoted to prospective buyers, both locally and abroad, as well as to an extensive list of private clients to help you reach your end goal: selling for the most money in the least amount of time.
Another important advantage is time—namely, yours. You’ll save countless hours and headaches by not having to waste your time communicating with and attempting to coordinate with various real estate offices. Your agent is your go-to person for all matters, and is the one who will screen prospective buyers, to identify those who are qualified buyers from the merely curious. By working exclusively with a RE/MAX Fidelity Brokers agent, you gain a trustworthy and skilled professional who will save you time and help you get the highest price for your property.
Some of the advantages of signing an exclusivity agreement include:
With our help, you’ve found a qualified buyer for your property. It would be nice to say things end here, with a simple handshake.
To complete the sale, however, a number of documents and certificates are needed, including a Certificate of Non-Arbitrariness and an Energy Performance Certificate—both of which are provided by a civil engineer. We collaborate with various engineers, to help expedite your required documents and to solve any other related issues that may arise.
These are the basic documents required to sell your property:
Attention: This certificate must precede all other documents!
Whether you’re looking to buy your dream home, office space or investment property, a successful property search requires taking a number of things into account. Price and location are certainly two of the most important, but there are others to keep in mind, as well. When you work with an agent from RE/MAX Fidelity Brokers, you’re working with a trained professional, that has years of experience and a vast network of private clients, who can help you find your ideal property.
Your agent is committed to helping you throughout the process, from the start of your search until the sale agreement is signed—offering guidance and showing you appropriate options that match your budget and needs. Your agent will have useful advice and insights, based on a knowledge of the market and of the locations that interest you, to help you make your final decision. Having an agent by your side ensures that you’ll achieve the best possible price during the negotiation and that you’ll be guided through the complex bureaucratic procedures leading up to the sale. As such, using an experienced agent for your property search is a wise choice—you’ll save yourself headaches, unnecessary risks and of course, money.
