THE ASKING PRICE

The asking price is an important factor to create interest in your home. The location, along with the environment and the prices of other recently sold properties in your neighbourhood, determine the right asking price. The condition of your home, the view, parking possibilities, privacy and the size of your plot of course also play an important role. The value of your home in the past is not a factor of importance; potential buyers will focus on the value at this moment. Beautiful stories of brokers who want you to believe that your property will yield a much higher amount than the actual value, will just end up costing you more time, and may even make you sell at a lower price, because if your home is for sale for an unnecessarily long period, it decreases the confidence and interest of potential buyers. Make sure you start with a correct and realistic asking price, and keep some room for negotiation with your buyer. We can help you with free advice to determine your correct asking price.

ONLINE MARKETING

Your home will be visible on our own sites for millions of visitors within a few days of agreeing to work with us. We also work closely with many partner sites; our sites are linked to all the major property portals. These advertisement portals are active in more than 25 countries. So your home is immediately published on many partner sites in various countries. The costs are for our account. Your property will be described with a professional translation in the most important languages. We also support those languages within our team so buyers always receive information and advice in their mother tongue. Our staff speaks seven languages, English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Russian and Turkish. Besides all the marketing information, we recommend you take a good look at the website of the real estate agent with whom you consider cooperating. Check the site with the eyes of a buyer. Can customers find your house easily, and is all the information presented to your liking? Is the site professional? You will soon discover that our sites are among the most modern sites in the real estate sector; through our own software programming we can assure that our sites and online marketing complies with the latest standards of all known search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex and many other lesser known search engines.

FINANCING

We work closely with some very large financial institutions, so if someone is interested in your home, but needs to close on a mortgage for the purchase we can see with a quick analysis whether this is feasible. This prevents you and the buyer loss of time. Many banks are open again for taking out a home mortgage. Our consultants have extensive experience with mortgages, and can ensure that a sale does not fall through because of funding.

WHAT YOU CAN DO YOURSELF

If you have decided to sell your property, we advise you not to save on small maintenance, and tidy up your home and maintain your garden. You may want to rent a small storage unit if you have lots of stuff. Do not leave too many things in your home unless they are absolutely necessary. Make sure your home and your garden make a neat and tidy appearance at a viewing. Do not make major investments though, such as the new kitchen or a renovation that you had in mind, in order to improve your sales. The additional investment will usually not come back. It is best to discuss your ideas on remodelling with a potential buyer in order to show them possible improvement points.

SALES COMMISSION

Although we work with competitive rates, we guarantee you and the buyer a professional way of working with maximum marketing effort on our own sites and on all major sales portals, including paid marketing on Google and many other media sources. Ultimately, it is important that your property is sold at the right price within a reasonable timespan. Our consultant can discuss the commission with you during a free informative talk. We will not tell you wonderful stories that need to be adjusted later and make you lose precious time. We give an honest sound advice based on our experience. If you work with us you can be confident to work with a trusted partner with a thorough knowledge of the real estate market in your area, and with exceptional know-how and experience in online marketing.
